The Senior Vice President of a top Taiwan university is visiting the University of Liverpool this week to unveil nine new dual PhD projects.
Professor Feng, who was a post-doc in Daresbury, is widely known for his contribution to the understanding of nuclear structure physics. He has arrived in Liverpool to launch the second cohort of four-year studentships offered as a dual programme between the University of Liverpool and National Tsing Hua University (NTHU).
The partnership means PhDs are registered at both Universities with successful applicants spending at least one year of the programme at the partner university campus.
“Our partnerships with top universities, like NTHU, are central to the continued advancement of world-class research, and enable us to further increase student and researcher mobility between the UK and Taiwan.”
Professor Feng has worked all over the world including Texas and Philadelphia in the USA and a number of universities in Asia.
He has published over 180 papers in nuclear physics, nuclear astrophysics, quantum optics and mathematical physics and is the editor of some twenty books.
The visit follows the announcement that NTHU will also be teaching one of the modules on the new University of Liverpool Nuclear Power Engineering MSc programme which has been launched for its inaugural intake in September. NTHU houses a research reactor on campus and will give students an intensive course of reactor operation as part of the MSc programme.
