I usually have a number of Ph.D. positions for suitably qualified students, mainly in the area of beam dynamics, wake-fields and impedances. These projects have both theoretical and experimental aspects. I may have CASE Studentships available -these will be for specific projects. This research entails ongoing collaborations with KEK, SLAC, CERN and DESY.

Currently I supervise 5 Ph.D. students and one PDRA.  At present I have openings for Ph.D. study in areas strongly related to VHEE radiotherapy (design of a novel machine, dose studies, cell DNA damage and treatment planning), and wakefield studies for XFELs.  Some of these research topics will entail spending considerable periods at CERN in order to successfully interact with the AB group on site.  Please feel free to contact Prof. R.M. Jones ( to discuss these and other Ph.D. projects.

I regularly teach graduate level courses on, linear accelerators, and wakefields and collective effects.  These courses are intended to reinforce the studies of my Ph.D. students.

Manchester University and the Cockcroft Institute at Daresbury collaborate with institutions around the world in high energy physics experiments.
