Theoretical Nuclear Physics Group

The Theoretical Nuclear Physics Group is part of the Department of Physics. We have close ties with the Experimental Nuclear Physics Group. We work at the forefront of nuclear physics research, studying the atomic nucleus with a variety of theoretical methods and seek to answer fundamental questions in physics.

Join us

As a student at Surrey, you can get involved in interdisciplinary research opportunities.

Fellowship opportunities

We are always keen to support fellowship applications for talented applicants.
