The School of Physics has a world-class reputation for research excellence, with a vibrant and diverse community of postgraduate students. Our programmes at the cutting edge of research.
MSc Nanoscience and Functional Nanomaterials
This interdisciplinary MSc programme will provide you with the skills, knowledge and expertise to become practitioners in nanoscience, whether in industry or academia. The programme provides innovative and novel training, and will support you in the next phase of your career.
MSc Nuclear Science and Engineering
Gain a solid grounding in the Science and Engineering principles underpinning the global nuclear industry. Throughout the programme you will benefit from an innovative connection, via the South West Nuclear Hub to the University of Bristol’s nationally-leading industrial research.
PhD / MSc by research Physics
Main research areas: dynamical systems and statistical mechanics, mathematical physics, fluid dynamics, materials science and scientific computing.
We expect to offer several Ph.D. studentships associated with a Centre for Doctoral Training in Data-Intensive Science.
Lasting 4 years, they will include six months of industrial placement with a partner in the commercial, industrial or private sectors.
Applications are welcome from UK, EU and other international applicants to start in October 2017.
A structured year of training in the foundational skills necessary for research before moving to an academic department in the faculties of Science, Engineering or Medical Sciences for a PhD project.
Training across a broad range of disciplines in the field of hard condensed matter physics, encompassing experiment, theory, fundamental studies and device applications.
Combining theoretical understanding with the practical application of quantum physics and mathematics with engineering makes this a truly successful approach to training.
