Title : PETRUS: YTERA Doctoral Programme for Nuclear Engineering and Radiochemistry
Country : Finland
Organisation : AALTO
Language : English
Academy of Finland has granted funding for a new doctoral programme for Nuclear Engineering and Radiochemistry (Finnish acronym YTERA) during 2012-2015. Since the utilisation of nuclear energy will considerably increase in Finland, the purpose of the programme is to educate researchers and experts for the needs of universities, industry and authorities. The programme is coordinated by Aalto University and it is carried out in partnership with the University of Helsinki and Lappeenranta University of Technology. The programme works closely with Finnish research bodies (VTT Technical Research Centre), industry, and authorities (Ministry of Employment and the Economy, Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority) that deal with nuclear energy generation.
Applications are invited for
seven (7) positions for doctoral students
for four years starting on 1.1.2012. Those who have already started their Doctoral Thesis work can apply for 1-3 years. The applicants must have a MSc degree or equivalent on a subject that is suitable for the YTERA doctoral programme. The major research fields of the programme are
• Nuclear engineering including new generations of nuclear reactors
• Treatment and disposal of nuclear waste
• Sustainable nuclear fuel cycles
• Nuclear safety and environmental impacts of nuclear energy
How to apply :
The deadline for applications is October 17, 2011, at 16:00 Finnish time (UTC 13:00). Applicants will be informed about the outcome of their application by mid-November.
