We have a number of fully funded 4-year PhD studentships offered in the area of Quantum Engineering, supported by the Quantum Engineering Centre for Doctoral Training (QE-CDT) at the University of Bristol.
The Quantum Engineering Centre for Doctoral Training (QE-CDT) offers exceptional graduates a four-year doctoral training programme, underpinned by world-class research and entrepreneurial expertise. This doctoral training centre, funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) and now going into its second phase, is a collaboration between the faculties of Science and Engineering at the University of Bristol. Based in the £12M Nanoscience building, the Centre is a key component of the University’s specialist research institute focusing on quantum information sciencea and technology. The QE-CDT’s 4 year programme encompasses the entire spectrum of theoretical understanding and the practical application of quantum physics. Students are able to choose their preferred area of research after successfully completing Year 1 and will have the choice to work with supervisors from across the university and the wider UK Quantum Technologies Network.
Typical projects in the QE-CDT will involve the following areas of research:
● Quantum computing and simulation
● Quantum communications
● Quantum sensing and metrology
● Underpinning quantum technologies
