Our minimum requirement is at least a first class UK Honours degree in physics. Other scientific disciplines, including engineering, chemistry and mathematics, may also be considered.
Months of entry
Recent theoretical and experimental advances mean that we are now able to exert an extraordinary degree of control over individual quantum systems and to prepare and manipulate groups of interacting quantum systems deterministically.
Bringing these techniques to bear upon both fundamental physics and a new swathe of technologies dependent on strange quantum phenomena defines the emerging field of controlled quantum dynamics.
The Department of Physics is leading an interdisciplinary Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) on Controlled Quantum Dynamics offering a four-year PhD, the first year of which leads to an MRes. Self-funded students may take the MRes by itself as a 12-month full-time course.
A feature of the course is its focus on both theory and experiment, equipping you to enter either avenue of research.
