PhD in Quantum Engineering

Underpinned by world-class research and industrial expertise, this four-year doctoral programme offers a stimulating experience for those seeking academic excellence and a route into the emerging quantum technologies industry. As a quantum engineer, you will become fluent in quantum mechanics, electrical and electronic engineering, systems engineering and computer science, as well as other physical sciences. Through world-leading academic research, as well as partnering with some of industry's most important companies, the Quantum Engineering CDT in Bristol has created an environment that delivers a unique training and development experience. Our strong network of academic and industrial partners provides the opportunity to collaborate on cutting-edge science. Students will also be supported to develop a range of complementary skills including entrepreneurial business skills, knowledge of commercialisation, creative thinking, teamwork, communication skills and project management.

Our programme has been designed in collaboration with a large number of academic and industry experts. It encompasses theoretical understanding and the practical application of quantum physics, and offers a breadth of opportunities for developing your research interests and skills.

Highlights include:

  • Guided and self-inspired research with a broad range of PhD research projects
  • Practical application as well as a sound theoretical understanding of quantum physics
  • Complementary skills – such as commercialisation and science communication - necessary for academic and industrial excellence
  • Access to an international network of world-class academic and industrial collaborators
  • Support for academic and industrial secondments
  • Opportunity to attend international and national conferences
  • A cohort approach to learning, enabling students to learn from each other in a rapidly evolving field
  • Student-led organisation of an annual conference
  • Access to a broad technology base and state-of-the-art facilities.
 The deadline for applications is 22 February 2015

Whether you're an engineer with an interest in quantum computing, a physicist with a passion for practical technologies or a mathematician with an aptitude for experimental work, this programme is the next step to a successful career in quantum technologies.

We are seeking bright, ambitious and enthusiastic candidates with backgrounds in mathematics, engineering, computer science and the physical sciences. Applicants should have an upper-second class degree in a relevant subject (or equivalent qualification).
