The highly successful centre for doctoral training in Controlled Quantum Dynamics at Imperial College London has been running for nine years. We now have additional funding for students to work with our project partners, the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and Toshiba UK. These are large research institutions, for example, the NPL has more than 150 postgraduate students. Their research interests include controlled quantum dynamics. Some of the applications include:
Students choosing to work with our partners will join the EPSRC supported doctoral training cohort for the first year MRes: the academic courses, labwork, outreach activities and cohort building are exactly the same. Our partners fund extra studentships, so you will choose your MRes and PhD projects from the ones they offer.
Applicants to the CDT must hold at least a Bachelor’s degree in Physics or a subject closely related to the research in the CDT such as Chemistry, Engineering, Mathematics or Computer Science. The majority of successful applicants hold a Master’s degree (MSci or MSc). The minimum degree requirement is 2.1 or its equivalent for MSc graduates or a first for BSc graduates.
Applications should be submitted online. There is no deadline for the partner project studentships. Applications will be considered on a first-come, first-served basis. Please see instructions on how to make an online application. Please specify your interest in applying for a project partner scholarship in your personal statement of the application. Once you apply for a project partner scholarship, please let Miranda Smith know. The CDT offers full funding, that is, tuition fees and living expenses to UK students and EU students who have been resident in the UK for three years prior to joining the CDT. EU students who do not meet the residency requirement are eligible for fees only. Unfortunately, we do not have any funding for overseas students. Please contact Miranda Smith with any further questions.
