The University of York is the number 1 UK university in the world ranking of universities under 50 years old.
The Department of Physics is growing vigorously, with an investment package during the last five years of 25 new academic posts, plus major new laboratories and facilities including the York-JEOL Nanocentre, the York Institute for Materials Research, the York Plasma Institute and Astrocampus. In addition to a dynamic and internationally renown research environment, we offer an active programme of post-graduate training including skills and professional development, and an attractive campus environment 2 km from the centre of one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
Research in the Department of Physics at the University of York spans a wide range of exciting fields in fundamental, cross-disciplinary and applied physics. Our internationally recognised research is organised into three groups with strong ties to industry:
- Condensed Matter Physics: nano and low-dimensional systems,magnetism and spintronics, quantum theory and applications &biophysics and organic systems
- Nuclear Physics and Nuclear Astrophysics
- Laser-Plasma Physics, Low Temperature Plasmas and Fusion energy
We offer PhD and MSc research degrees, as well as a 4-year PhD in the Fusion Doctoral Training Network, a one-year taught MSc in Fusion Energy and a nine-month Graduate Diploma in Physics.
PhD studentships are currently available with funding from the EPSRC/STFC, the Fusion DTN, industry sponsorship or The University of York. Some funding is also available for the MSc in Fusion Energy.
