Postgraduate study at CTAMOP

Project proposals for PhD study in the Centre for Theoretical Atomic Molecular and Optical Physics (CTAMOP) have now been made available through the centre’s website.

The projects span the full gamut of CTAMOP’s research portfolio, with projects in Quantum information, Atomic physics, Ultrafast Laser-Atom interaction and Antimatter physics on offer.

Full funding (stipend and tuition fees) would be available for a number of UK nationals or EU nationals who have lived in the UK for over 3 years prior to their application. The closing date for funded studentship applications starting October 2017 is 17 February 2016. Applications for self funded applications can be received at any time.

The full list of projects- with detailed descriptions- can be found in the postgraduate studies section of the website and from there applications can be submitted online. We are happy to receive applications from all interested parties.

If you would like to discuss a project with a potential supervisor, contact details can be found in the project descriptions. For general queries about PhD study, please contact Prof. Mauro Paternostro.


We are a Research Cluster of the School of Mathematics and Physics at Queen’s University Belfast in Northern Ireland. Our research interests are focused primarily on computational and theoretical physics.
