Fully Funded PhD Studentship: Quantum Information Science in UK

Brief Description:

Swansea University (Wale) is offering fully funded PhD studentship in the field of theoretical quantum information at the Department of Physics in the College of Science. The successful candidate will be supervised by Dr Markus Müller.


Course Level: Studentship is available for pursuing PhD programme.


Study Subject: Studentship is awarded in the field of theoretical quantum information.


Scholarship Award: The studentship covers the full cost of UK/EU tuition fees, plus an annual stipend of £14,553.



Successful candidates are expected to bring a high enthusiasm for the above research topics, hold a master’s degree in Physics (EU/UK) or a related field, and have a strong background in one or more of the following:

Quantum computing and quantum information, quantum many-body systems, quantum optics, atomic physics and computer science. Programming skills and previous numerical simulation experience are not a prerequisite, but valuable for the project.

The successful PhD candidate will join their recently established theory team, which currently involves four postdocs, one PhD student and master’s students. She/he will also be an integral part of the vibrant scientific environment of the Atomic, Molecular and Quantum Physics (AMQP) Group at the Department of Physics, as well as of the Doctoral Training Centre at the College of Science at Swansea University.

The successful PhD candidate will have the opportunity to interact and collaborate closely with leading international theoretical and experimental groups, including the experimental ion-trap quantum information group at Innsbruck University, as well as experimental groups at Mainz University, ETH Zurich, Sydney University, as well as theory groups at Oxford University, in the UK and Europe. The PhD candidate will be encouraged to participate in summer/winter schools and to present her/his research at conferences and workshops.


Nationality: UK/EU students are eligible to apply.
