- Towards a clinical MEG system: theoretical and practical insights into the use of optically pumped magnetometers
- 3D Nanostructured Thermoelectric Materials
- Development of a nanostructured heating element to explore high temperature materials physics
- Controlled coherent coupling of single quantum dots in photonic crystal cavity networks
- Quantum coherence and carrier dynamics in colloidal nanostructures from dots to 1D and 2D materials
- Optical decoherence and coherent coupling of excitons in quantum dots embedded in photonic cavities
- A multi-scale computational model of brain blood flow: enhancing MRI for assessing brain health
- Energy Harvesting for Autonomous Systems
- Tunable THz laser source
- Novel nanocavities in wide bandgap semiconductors for quantum optical devices
- Statistical characterisation of brain tissue microstructure with diffusion magnetic resonance imaging
- Template assisted III-V epitaxy enabling quantum dot lasers on silicon
- Random laser with III-V semiconductor nanowires
The following project is also suitable for a physicist. Please apply via the EPSRC Doctoral Training Partnership PhD in Engineering.

We reserve the right to close applications early should we receive a satisfactory number of applications.
|Tuition fee support||Full UK/EU tuition fees|
|Maintenance stipend||Doctoral stipend matching UKRI National Minimum.|
|Additional funding offered||Additional funding is available over the course of the programme and will cover costs such as research consumables, training, conferences and travel.|
|Residency||UK Research Council eligibility conditions apply|
Applicants with a Lower Second Class degree will be considered if they also have a master’s degree. Applicants with a minimum Upper Second Class degree and significant relevant non-academic experience are encouraged to apply.
The Doctoral Training Partnership welcomes applications from both UK and EU applicants; however, as a consequence of the EU referendum result, final award decisions will depend on the outcomes of the UK/EU negotiations.
Full awards (fees plus maintenance stipend) are open to UK Nationals and EU students who can satisfy UK residency requirements. To be eligible for the full award, EU Nationals must have been in the UK for at least three years prior to the start of the course for which they are seeking funding, including for the purposes of full-time education.
A small number of awards may also be made available to EU Nationals who do not meet the above residency requirement, provided that they have been ordinarily resident in the EU for at least three years prior to the start of their proposed programme of study.
Applicants should apply for admission to the Doctor of Philosophy in Physics and Astronomy with a October 2019 start date.
In the research proposal section of your application, please specify the project title and supervisors of this project and copy the project description in the text box provided. In the funding section, please select "I will be applying for a scholarship / grant" and specify that you are applying for advertised funding from EPSRC DTP.
Interested applicants are invited to send a CV and a personal statement to the School of Physics and Astronomy.
If are applying for more than one Cardiff University project please note this in the research proposal section.
We reserve the right to close applications early should sufficient applications be received.
