Postgraduate opportunities

We offer fully-funded STFC PhD studentships (for UK nationals and UK-based students only), University of Edinburgh Principal's Career Development PhD Scholarships (for any nationality). We are part of the ScotDIST CDT in Data Intensive Science.

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.  For more information ppe-phd [at] ph.ed.ac.uk (email us).

From September 2018 we offer an MSc degree in Particle and Nuclear Physics. This  MSc 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.
