2021 Studentships

Applications are invited for 2 DPhil (PhD) studentships for up to 3.5 years from 1st October 2021 in the Particle Theory group. These are funded by the UK Science and Technology Facilities Council and cover University & College fees for all UK nationals, and provide in addition a maintenance award for UK residents only. The detailed rules for eligibility are given here.

A full list of research interests and supervisor availability can be found here. Candidates may contact any staff member to discuss research interests and successful applicants will in general have a choice of supervisor from all those available to take on a student.

Our graduate training programme constitutes part of the Oxford Master Course in Mathematical and Theoretical Physics.

Candidates should have been awarded an undergraduate degree in physics by the start date of the post and have a strong background in theoretical physics.

To apply, please follow the standard procedure of applying for graduate study in Theoretical Physics, outlined here.

Only applications received by noon on 22 January 2021 will be considered. You will have to fill in the application form (please write 'STFC' in the field “Title of research project” and 'supervisor name' as “proposed supervisor” if known on application), submit a CV, brief statement of research interests, and details of three academic referees.
