23 Jun 2021 | News

Bangor University in Wales has appointed Dr Thomas Davis as Honorary Research Fellow within the Nuclear Futures Institute. Dr Davis will be supporting the effort in understanding radiation damage to materials, the development of novel nuclear materials, and fusion & fission technology.

Nuclear energy has played a key role in the area for many decades and the end of the Magnox-era has opened up great new opportunities with two exceptional nuclear licensed sites – Wylfa and Trawsfynydd on our doorstep – and a rapidly growing industrial and academic resource at Bangor University and our science park, M-SParc. Since inception of the Nuclear Futures Institute in late 2017 – the group has built extraordinary facilities that are being used by leading industry stakeholders to aid nuclear technology development.

Founded in 1884, Bangor University has a long tradition of academic excellence and a strong focus on the student experience. Around 11,000 students currently study at the University, with 650 teaching staff based within 14 Academic Schools. Bangor University is ranked in the top 40 in the UK for research, according to the Research Excellence Framework (REF ) 2014. The REF recognised that more than three-quarters of Bangor’s research is either world-leading or internationally excellent, ahead of the average for UK universities.
