Project Opportunities and Research Topics

PhD Projects

New Projects Added. For a September 2018 start we will be able to fund fourteen new four year studentships leading to PhDs in Physics, Chemistry, Engineering, Materials or Life Sciences. If you are interested in joining a dynamic team involved in all aspects of Diamond Research then please click here to apply. We will arrange for you to speak with project supervisors and guide you through the application process.
