The project will be hosted by the recently funded Oxford Centre for Applied Superconductivity (CfAS) in the Department of Physics. The student will investigate the phase diagrams of novel superconducting thin flake devices under different extreme conditions of high magnetic field, strain and pressure.
The research group in Oxford has pioneered new methods of trapping ultracold atoms using a combination of radiofrequency and static magnetic fields that is a very powerful tool for probing 2D quantum systems.
Oxford Astrophysics, in collaboration with Manchester, Caltech and SKA South Africa, has built a pair of all-sky survey telescopes to definitively measure the synchrotron emission from the Galaxy in intensity and polarization, to improve foreground subtraction and hence significantly improve the sensitivity of experiments such as Planck.The physics department is divided into six sub-departments covering a broad range of research topics. Each sub-department has their own individual web-pages which provide information on the available research projects and admissions procedures within the sub-department.A step closer to solving the mystery of matter. Scientists from Oxford University’s Department of Physics are part of an international collaboration that has taken a major step forward in understanding the difference between matter and antimatter.
Studying the Physical Conditions in Galaxies at High Redshift with the James Webb Space Telescope. Andrew Bunker. This project is associated with Andy Bunker and the Instrument Science Team of the Near Infrared Spectrograph (NIRSpec) on the James Webb Space Telescope - the successor to the Hubble Space Telescope to be launched in early 2021.Read More
The particle physics doctoral programme at Oxford is ideally suited to students who would like to pursue a career in research, either in academia or industry all over the world. Students have taken on a wide variety of jobs in other fields, including investment banking, business analysis, and consulting.Read More
At Oxford University you must apply to a college for admission to the University. My college is Corpus Christi College, and we have an intake of 6 undergraduate physics students a year. Corpus Christi has an excellent academic standard, and is well suited to those interested in physics as a research career.Read More

Applications may be considered if places are still available but cannot be considered for University funding. This means that you are responsible for sourcing your own funds to pay for your course fees and your living expenses.Read More
Generally the projects do not have specific deadlines, as we intend to consider applicants within the University of Oxford's Graduate Admissions standard application fields. Some of the descriptions on this website are of projects that carry earmarked funding and in these cases the eligibility of home, EU and overseas applicants is indicated.Read More
Philosophy of physics: Philosophy of physics is the philosophical and conceptual study of the major physical theories: statistical mechanics, quantum mechanics and quantum field theory, and theories of space-time, gravity, and cosmology.Read More
PhD projects. We are now accepting applications for our PhD programme. To be considered for a funded or self-funded PhD project apply by 31 May 2020. We're currently recruiting PhD students to work on the following projects. We encourage you to do some research on our academics to really get to know how their work and expertise fits with your interests before you apply.Read More
Post-graduate Studentships. We are seeking graduate students to undertake research within our 3-4 year PhD and 1 year MSc research programmes. Students will undertake full-time (or part time) cutting edge astronomical research, in addition to our post-graduate lecture courses in their first year. More details on the application procedure and eligibilty can be found on the astronomy post.Read More
