Physics postgraduate opportunities

From Masters to PhD and beyond...

Our Department has been leading large scale postgraduate research and teaching initiatives for many years. We are currently coordinator of the STFC Centres for Doctoral Training (CDT) on Big Data Science (LIV.DAT), Innovation in Data Intensive Science (LIV.INNO), EPSRC CDT's on New and Sustainable Photovoltaics and Risk & Uncertainty, as well as European Innovative Training Networks on Medical Accelerators and Antimatter Physics. We have very successfully run a number of similar training programmes in the past. Our research leaders are in charge of these programmes, and will work closely with you on your research project and in your specific training courses. They will provide you with the international research and training experience you need to excell in postgraduate study and research.

Postgraduate study

Our postgraduate taught programmes provide cutting edge physics teaching and career enhancement in fields such as Radiometrics, Nuclear Science & Technology and Medical Physics.

We build considerable flexibility into our core masters programme, with many options available to meet your career and academic needs.

Postgraduate research

The Department is creating exciting postgraduate research opportunities across all areas of our research.

Pursue a PhD programme in the following areas of Physics: Accelerator Physics, Condensed Matter Physics, Nuclear Physics and Particle Physics and you will benefit from high quality lecture courses, excellent research training and many opportunities to pursue your research at leading institutes and laboratories around the world.

Continuing Professional Development

We offer a series of Radiometrics Continuing Professional Development short courses tailored to meet your professional needs. The teaching professionals are pioneers in the sector and members of the Nuclear Physics group, they will provide you with access to leading-edge knowledge and the latest high-level skills.

This programme is aimed at highly motivated mid-career engineers and scientists working in the field of radiation detection in industries including: Nuclear; Healthcare; Military & Security; Scientific research and Manufacturing.
