PhD Opportunities

Below you will see a list of currently available PhD projects being offered by UCL supervisors in the Quantum Technologies Area. To apply, you must first have contacted and discussed the project(s) you are interested in with the prospective supervisor(s). Having agreed with the supervisor to apply for a PhD studentship, applications should then be submitted via the LCN PhD portal.

Selected students must also submit an application for admission via the UCL Application Portal – your chosen supervisor will be able to confirm the programme to apply for. Please note that if you already submitted an application via the UCL Application Portal (e.g. for a UCL CDT) you do not need to do this again.

The PhD studentships offered are fully funded (including tuition fees and stipend) by EPSRC and open to both Home and Overseas students. The duration of the studentship is four years.
