STFC Fully-Funded Scholarships in Theoretical Physics 

Swansea University’s Department of Physics has a call for an STFC funded scholarship in 2020 in Particle Physics and Cosmology Theory. Research can be done in any of the interests of the Particle Physics and Cosmology Theory group including:

• AdS/CFT, holography and Integrability
• Dualities in Quantum Field Theories and String theory
• Amplitudes in gauge and supergravity theories
• Theoretical cosmology and gravitational waves
• Hot and dense QCD on the lattice
• Physics beyond the standard model

Applications should be submitted as soon as possible and will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Shortlisted candidates will be invited to interview over Skype or Zoom.


Candidates must have a first, upper second class honours or a Masters degree with Merit, in a relevant discipline. Informal enquiries and queries on eligibility for this programme may be directed to the Postgraduate Admissions Tutor Dr Daniel Thompson.

Studentships funded by STFC are subject to UK/EU residency eligibility.

For candidates whose first language is not English, we require IELTS 6.5 (with 6.0 in each component) or equivalent. Please visit our website for a list of acceptable English language tests. We prefer candidates to have already met the English Language requirements at the point of application, although this is not a requirement.


These are 42 month fully-funded STFC scholarships, which cover UK/EU tuition fees and an annual stipend. The current stipend is £15,245 per annum.
