Fully funded international PhD studentships available for Oct. 2019 start
The University of Southampton, UK has been awarded a highly prestigious Programme from the European Research Council to study the generation, propagation and interaction with matter of the “Flying Donuts”, a new type of propagating electromagnetic excitations of toroidal topology, that were never experimentally studied before. This represents an exciting opportunity to advance optics and electromagnetism in a radically new direction since Hertz, Marconi, Popov and Tesla developed technology for generating, detecting, and communicating with conventional electromagnetic waves.
We are seeking bright and highly motivated postgraduate research students of outstanding calibre to join our programme. We welcome applications from students with a background in Physics, Electrical Engineering, Materials Science, and related subjects. Applicants must have a first or upper second-class degree (or equivalent) from a recognized university, and a solid grounding in Optics/Electromagnetism. The studentships are fully funded for 3.5 years, including tuition fees and a tax-free bursary.
UK, EU and international applicants are welcome.
For informal enquiries please write to Prof. Nikolay I. Zheludev, FRS (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr Nikitas Papasimakis (email@example.com).
We are accepting application for both the Spring 2019 and Fall 2019 Sessions. Apply now!

The Special Scholarship Program (SSP) was established in 2003 in order to support the advanced research of the university by enlisting the help of highly capable students especially students from foreign countries. Every year in April and October, the university enrolls selected doctoral students for specific research projects. The students pursue the doctoral course in English (excl. Japanese students) while at the same time assisting their host professor as a research assistant (RA). Through this program KUT wishes to expand and deepen international ties with academic and educational institutions all over the world.
