The (experimental) Condensed Matter Physics research area includes many interacting research groups and facilities within the department. Students undertake the Materials Physics Doctorate scheme, giving access to a tailored research degree to help you exploit both our own outstanding materials growth, fabrication, characterisation and computational capabilities, and those at central facilities. A broad education in Materials Physics is provided through dedicated modules under the Midlands Physics Alliance Graduate School, and external courses.

Graphene membranes for microscopy

There is an opening for a Masters by Research project for the 2019/2020 academic year on 'Graphene membranes for microscopy' under the supervision of Dr Neil Wilson (Department of Physics). See attached for the project description. The project has the potential for an internship at Silson Ltd (a local company specialising in the fabrication of membranes) and the opportunity for paid work as part of the project. Potential applicants are encouraged to contact Dr Neil Wilson (Neil.Wilson@warwick.ac.uk) for further information. Further details are available here.

Centre for Doctoral Training in Diamond Science and Technology

Diamond is a material of such diverse application, who knows what it is capable of achieving?

Who knows? You know.

The DST CDT is a gateway to the best in the UK's diamond research. You could deepen your understanding of diamond's properties, and apply your knowledge of physics, engineering, chemistry, life sciences or materials. You could uncover new ways to utilise this material's unique structure. You could be at the international forefront of efforts to transform society through aerospace, or telecommunications, or electronics, or manufacturing…

Fully funded PhD projects based at the University of Warwick, in Diamond Science and Technology for 2019 entry.

New projects available: There are three PhD fully funded projects currently available. These projects provide full funding for stipend and fees for four years, and all include a generous research training support grant. All three projects are part funded by industry and have the possibility of an extended internship/placement in company/partner university research laboratories.

Project details:

Structural and Spectroscopic Imaging with Advanced Electron Microscopies

Diamond Magnetometry in Cars and Aircraft

Platform Development for Diamond Quantum and Photonic Technologies

Warwick Centre for Doctoral Training in Analytical Sciences

The Warwick Centre for Doctoral Training in Analytical Sciences is recruiting the next generation of analytical scientists. With the world-leading facilities and expertise in Analytical Science at Warwick and partner external facilities (e.g., Diamond, ILL, ISIS) at their disposal, our students will graduate with a unique combination of skills in exploiting synergies between different experimental methods, e.g., diffraction, electrochemistry, mass spectrometry, microscopy and NMR, and in harnessing the power of combining data collection with experimental design, statistical analysis and simulation. Research and training will be delivered from across physical sciences, engineering and manufacturing, statistics, life and medical sciences in close partnership with industry, with research areas including pharmaceuticals, agro-chemicals and additives, soft matter, biological systems, energy and functional materials.

How to apply: We invite applications from recent graduates with a strong first degree in any related discipline, including Chemistry, Engineering, Life Sciences, Mathematics, Pharmacy, Physics and Statistics. Studentships are available for UK citizens for September 2019 entry (full fees + consumables budget and minimum £14k stipend). EU students can apply for a limited number of stipends covering tuition fees. Applications are invited throughout the year.
