Royal Holloway, University of London invites application for the Quantum Material Fellowship. Further, the fellowship is available to recent graduates as well as students who have completed their MSc degree. The PhD student will work along with the Nano-Electronics Group within Electronic Engineering. The department has a purposely-designed brand-new Science Building situated on the beautiful Egham campus close to London.
Moreover, the rise of Quantum Materials has been strongly linked with the development of instrumentation in advanced nanofabrication and characterization in the past twenty years. Royal Holloway is a new national center for nanofabrication. Further, it has a strong infrastructure in quantum material research. Also, recent grants have funded a brand new clean room, home to the high-resolution imaging e-beam lithography system. It also benefits from the geographical proximity to the National Physics Laboratory, and the national synchrotron and neutron scattering facilities, where the students will take relevant training and perform experiments.
The fully funded Quantum Material Fellowship provides the fellows with a competitive stipend that covers their cost for the doctoral degree. Moreover, the fellowship provides a stipend of approx. £17,009 plus fees (at home/EU rates) for three years. Overseas applicants are welcome to apply. However, they will require to find other sources to pay the difference between the UK and overseas tuition fees.
To be eligible for the Quantum Material Fellowship, applicants must abide by the criteria set by the Royal Holloway University of London which include:
Applicants may send their CV to the Project Supervisor, Dr. Wenqing Liu, on for an informal discussion before applying for the fellowship. With the consent of the Project Supervisor as well as meeting the eligibility, the applicants may lodge a formal application via Royal Holloway Direct.
