Physics (PhD)

Doctorate (PhD)

Program overview

A PhD in Physics gives you expertise in the applied concepts of the discipline and allows you to contribute to our faculty's research specializations. The laws of physics are applied in advancements in many areas including modern medical and space-related technologies, climate research and energy generation and storage. Our faculty members are experts in fields as varied as bioengineering and chemistry and cultivate strong student-supervisor relationships. Our cutting-edge research centres promote interdisciplinary collaborations in nano-, molecular and life sciences. Projects currently underway at the Centre for NanoScience Research examine the optical properties of nanomaterials and the structure-function relationships in photosynthetic pigment-protein complexes. Other topics currently being studied by our PhD students include the quantum behaviour of electrons in graphene transistors and a look at possible candidates for dark matter.
