Our new Graduate School provides a comprehensive PhD training programme covering the advancement and application of Quantum Technologies from fundamental physics to practical technologies. The School is run in partnership between the Universities of Strathclyde, Glasgow and Heriot-Watt and we offer advanced research projects and training in fundamental and applied aspects of Quantum Optics and Quantum Technologies. We also offer research projects in partnership with industrial partners.
We have several fully funded 3.5 year PhD positions in the three broad areas of Quantum Measurement and Sensing, Quantum Computing and Simulation, and Quantum Communications and Networks. Complementary to the research project, we will provide dedicated lecture courses both covering the theoretical foundation and the experimental techniques of Quantum Technologies, and organise Summer Schools, workshops and conferences. We recognise the value that diverse viewpoints bring to research, and seek to recruit students from diverse backgrounds. If you identify as belonging to a group currently under-represented in Physics, we particularly welcome your application.
Alongside these academic projects, we have a number of industrial PhD studentships available, offering the unique opportunity to work embedded in an industrial R&D team at companies leading the development of commercial quantum technologies. For more details click here.
