IoP's Core of Physics, which is a recap and a slight extension of the A-level syllabus.
It's too bad - there is a lot of activity in nuclear physics (pun intended). We are not just filling in the gaps in an ageing field of physics. 2010 saw the most new isotopes discovered since nuclear physicists first started building accelerators to study matter - and we are about to enter a new golden period of new experimental facilities around the world, such that the 2010 figure will be overtaken again in the not too-distant future. The theoretical understanding of nuclei, which are hugely complex objects, gets ever-better, with leaps in understanding of the underlying interaction between the constituents, and in the the ability to perform better calculations. It's a good time to be in nuclear physics.
So... might I mention here that we have a PhD position available, with funding for a good UK candidate, to undertake research in the theoretical nuclear physics group at Surrey. We work on a diverse range of topics across the group. Feel free to get in touch, or leave a comment below if you're interested in finding out more!
