Our Application cycle for PhDs starting in September 2024 is nearly complete (closing date for applications was 31/1/2024). This page will be updated with details of opportunities for the 2025 recruitment cycle in autumn 2024.

We anticipate 1-2 fully funded studentships (covering fees and maintenance stipend at the UKRI rate for 3.5 years) with opportunity for both UK and international candidates. We also have an opportunity for a joint studentship between KCL and Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL). Adverts for specific projects are linked below. We are also seeking additional funding so when we shortlist, we will consider your application against any funded positions you are eligible for.

Additionally, we are keen to recruit students through the Kings-China Scholarship Council (K-CSC) scheme and other international funding opportunities (see below for links). If you are interested in applying through different international funding schemes such as KCSC or self-funding please contact us by email as early as you can.

K-CSC funding scheme

In addition to first class supervision on a range of exciting PhD topics in these areas, all EPAP PhD students will receive comprehensive training through the University of London Particle Physics Postgraduate Lecture Course during their first year and access to the NEXT PhD School.
