Jointly based at the Universities of Bristol and Bath, our Centre for Doctoral Training aims to train students across a broad range of disciplines in the field of hard condensed matter physics, encompassing experiment, theory, fundamental physics and device applications.
Our CDT structure also emphasises strong engagement with industrial, academic and large facility partners as well as training in key transferable skills and public engagement.


Application for Sept 2018

Applications for entry to the CDT-CMP in September 2018 are now open. The deadline for the first round of applications is 29th January 2018, we advise you to apply early.

The next interview dates are Friday 9th and Wednesday 14th February 2018.

Our vision is to expose students to the most exciting research topics in condensed matter physics, break down traditional boundaries between disciplines and produce graduates who are able to mix theory with experiment, embed state-of-the-art measurement or computational science in their research and exploit fundamental physics in applications.
