Main Question or Discussion Point

I have just finished my PhD in Statistics. My Masters Dissertation was on the topic of Accelerator Driven Nuclear Energy Systems. I would be very interested in continuing research on the subject as a post-doctoral student.

I don't know anybody personally (beyond casual), but you could look at CEN/SCK:

There are programs in the US, Europe and Asia.

I believe UIUC, U of Wisconsin, UCal-Berkeley, MIT, Texas A&M, U of Florida-Gainesville, and others have ADS in their Nuclear Eng programs.

How far east. Are Illinois or Wisconsin considered to far west?

Meanwhile - check some of these theses - http://www.studentpipeline.org/afci/ms/theses.html [Broken] - which include some ADS topics and which give one an idea where research is being done.

I'll see if I can identify specific programs later.

Hi there, our group at Manchester University is working on ADSRs, and we have a test accelerator being constructed at Daresbury Laboratory to test a new proton driver concept. Please drop us a line at: http://www.hep.manchester.ac.uk/accelerators/
