Closing Date:


Deadline: March 3rd, 2024


The Theoretical Physics group at the University of Liverpool invites applications for PhD studentships, starting 1 September 2016 or soon thereafter. We have at least 2 STFC funded studentships, which are available to students resident in the UK/EU and can cover tuition fees and a maintenance grant for 3.5 years. Additionally the department of mathematical sciences has Graduate Teaching Assistant PhD Studentships. These grants are open to applicant of all nationality. They cover the tuition fee at the EU rate and a maintenance grant for 3.5 years. Overseas candidates would have to provide the difference between the UK/EU and the overseas student rates, for the university fees, from some other source, such as a scholarship or personal funds.

The Theoretical Physics group provides an internationally leading research and training environment for PhD students in the fields of particle physics phenomenology, multi-loop calculations, quantum field theory, lattice gauge theory, black holes and string theory. For more information on the group, see


Background of applicants:

Prior background in theoretical particle physics would be an advantage.
The successful candidates should have or expect to have at least a 2.1 degree or equivalent in Physics and/or Mathematics.
