Title:Higgs Prize PhD Fellowships in Theoretical Physics
Position:Phd
Location:U. Edinburgh, Higgs Ctr. Theor. Phys.
Contact:Zwicky, Roman
Closing Date:2021-01-30

Job Description:

Application are invited to up to two Higgs Prize PhD Fellowships in any area of theoretical physics, starting September 2021.

We are particularly interested in recruiting students with a strong mathematical background who are passionate to study and explore the fundamental laws of Nature. 

The Prize will cover fees and a four-year stipend, matching the level of the UK Research Council Maintenance Allowance rates (£15,285 per annum), as well as research funds of £1.5k per annum to cover books, computing and conference costs. 

Applications are open to all students with no conditions on nationality. Furthermore, we value diversity, and we would like to strongly encourage female and international candidates to apply. 

Before applying, interested candidates should get in touch with a supervisor from Higgs Centre (a theoretical physicist who is an academic member of staff in the School of Physics and Astronomy) to support their application.
Applicants are advised to include in their application a statement of interest regarding the Higgs Prize PhD Fellowship under the ‘Research Proposal’ category (there is no need to write a detailed research proposal, just a brief description of the general topic agreed upon with the supervisor). The selection panel will take into account supporting statements from the prospective supervisors.

Students who have already applied and wish to submit a statement of interest for this fellowship are welcome to send their statements by email to the Graduate School Administrator Danielle Jeffery at gradschool.physics@ed.ac.uk
