Nuclear Industry Group

Welcome to the Nuclear Industry Group, formed in 2010. This is the group for physicists involved with or interested in the nuclear industry.

Our group flyer is available for download.

The Nuclear Industry Group was formed to promote links between physicists involved with, or interested in, any aspect of the nuclear industry. The group aims to promote the diverse roles that physicists have in all aspects of the nuclear industry, including the civil and defence-related sectors.

We recognise that the nuclear industry is of interest to a broad audience and so we seek to engage and include those who are not directly involved in it. The group therefore welcomes members from a wide range of backgrounds and interests. Whether you have been in the industry for many years, are a student considering a career in this sector or are someone with a general interest in this field, we look forward to welcoming you as a member and meeting you at an event soon.

As a group we, hold relevant speaker meetings at least once a quarter, organise half-day seminars, arrange tours to facilities and publish an annual newsletter. Meetings are held in a variety of UK locations to reflect the geographical spread of our members and at times which are sensitive to regular working hours.

The most recent presentations and newsletter can be downloaded from the links on the left hand side of this page; where details of the annual awards, list of winners and event calendar can also be found.

Particularly we support professional development and networking opportunities. We encourage members to achieve formal status as physicists, such as becoming Chartered or a Fellow with the IOP, and to continue to develop themselves throughout their career. The networking opportunities offered by the Group help support this development as well as providing opportunities to make contact with physicists with a wide range of backgrounds.
