Postgraduate opportunities

We offer fully-funded STFC PhD studentships (for UK nationals and UK-based students only), SUPA studentships and University of Edinburgh Principal's Career Development PhD Scholarships (for any nationality). We welcome applications from excellent candidates who already hold a scholarship (or have their own funds), or wish to apply for a PhD place in conjunction with a scholarship application. Most projects include the opportunity for a fully-funded long-term attachment to CERN for 12-24 months. From September 2018 we offer an MSc course in 'Particle and Nuclear Physics'. This is aimed to develop research and problem solving skills, with graduates gaining the skills needed to apply advanced data analysis techniques to the large data sets being collected by running and planned experiments.
