  EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Delivering Quantum Technologies

Funding Type

PhD Type

4-year PhD programme in quantum technology and quantum systems engineering. • Quantum technologies involve control and manipulation of quantum states to achieve results not possible with classical matter, transforming measurement, communication and computation.
  PhD Translational Quantum Technology: translating quantum sensors and metrology devices based on atoms as probe particles into real-world applications
  Prof K Bongs
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Quantum technology has been identified by the UK Government as a key area of innovation, moving science into real-world applications.
  Quantum Many-Body Scars: developing a deeper understanding of quantum many-body scars as a new class of systems where ergodicity is weakly broken
  Research Group: Qunatum Information
  Dr Z Papic
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

In recent years, investigations of out-of-equilibrium phenomena in quantum many-particle systems have become one of the most active research areas in physics.
  Quantum sensors for fundamental physics
  Dr A Datta
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This theoretical project will produce the design principles for quantum sensors to tackle some of the most fundamental open problems in physics.
  The Simulation of Quantum Transport in Topological Insulators (TIs) and TI Based Nanoscale Field Effect Transistors (TI FETs)
  Dr G Edwards, Dr T. Papadopoulos
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The field of Nanoelectronics is concerned with the materials, devices, circuits and systems relevant to contemporary integrated circuits (ICs).
  On-chip single-photon sources for quantum information technology applications
  Research Group: Quantum, Light & Matter
  Dr L Sapienza
Application Deadline: 31 August 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Non-classical optical sources emitting single photons are required for applications in quantum information science. Quantum cryptography, for instance, exploits the fundamental principles of quantum mechanics to provide unconditional security for communication.
  Jamming-free quantum lidar
  Research Group: Quantum Technologies
  Prof J Jeffers, Dr J Pritchard
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Radar enables rapid determination of a distant object’s position and velocity using microwaves and its counterpart, optical range finding using LIDAR, offers improved spatial resolution.
  The quantum theory of biological systems: finding quantum design rules for bio-organic nano-devices
  Dr B W Lovett, Dr A Chin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Nanoscale biological processes must necessarily be quantum mechanical in nature. Traditional approaches to modelling these quantum dynamics capture the behaviour of only a few “system” particles by assuming they are weakly coupled to a passive thermal environment.
  Quantum Field Theory Applied to Nanotechnology
  Prof C Eberlein
Application Deadline: 22 February 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Lead Supervisor. Prof Claudia Eberlein. Properties of quantum systems, like the energy levels of an atom, depend on the interaction with the quantized electromagnetic field.
  PhD Studentship Opportunity in Investigating quantum effects in olfaction: combining simulation and closed/open quantum system analytic theory
  Prof J Al-Khalili, Prof J J Mcfadden
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Olfaction (smell) is a fascinating but challenging field in science. Theories for the signalling transduction mechanism are still disputed and hotly debated, and not yet established.
