This is a new type of studentship on our programme which provides:
· Fully funded 4-year studentships including fees, stipend and a generous training and research support package
· Enhanced Stipend (£18,953 per year)
· Innovative MRes in Quantum Technologies in first year of programme
· PhD, in years 2-4, in collaboration with a world-class industrial partner
· Open to UK residents and EU-fee paying students*.
· Start date: September 2018
These Industrial Track studentships, which are co-funded by an industrial partner, allow the student to select the specific theme of their PhD project at the application stage (see project descriptions below).
Some PhD projects are embedded within the industrial partner lab, outside of UCL. Students will be primarily based at UCL during their first year of study. The location of the research project (in the summer of year 1 and years 2-4) is detailed below.
Applicants should have a strong academic track record (to Masters level) in Physics, Electrical Engineering, Chemistry Computer Science or Maths.
Applications are now open. To apply, please see our web-site: http://www.uclq.org/centre-for-doctoral-training/how-to-apply/
Application Deadline: the studentships will be filled when suitable candidates have been found. Early applications are strongly encouraged!
* There is a limited quota of studentships available for EU-fee status students.
Doctoral Training Programmes: EPSRC Skills Hub and Centre for Doctoral Training in Delivering Quantum Technologies
UCL hosts the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Delivering Quantum Technologies. In addition, the new £3.5m skills hub award will allow UCLQ to address the supply of people to the emerging quantum technologies industry, including significant expansion of its postgraduate training and research programme in quantum technologies. A total of at least 15 funded research studentships in quantum technologies will be available each year, with an increased provision for students whose research interests focus on targeted engineering of quantum technologies. Please follow the application instructions carefully.
Students in the programme will take a broadly based training year before undertaking a PhD research project in one of the centre’s research groups; some of the Skills Hub students will take their PhD projects elsewhere in the national Quantum Technologies programme, including the four Quantum Technology Hubs. All students will also be trained in entrepreneurship, outreach and scientific communication.
