London Centre for Nanotechnology is a joint venture between London’s Global University (UCL) and Imperial College London

The LCN brings together researchers from around the world who, through the application of nanoscience & nanotechnology, are helping to solve global problems in fields such as information processing, medicine and the environment.

Our large and diverse PhD community is engaged in a wide & varied range of research activities that cover not only the core areas of nanotechnology, but also the fundamental scientific fields that underpin it.

The center is always looking for high achieving, high calibre people, from a broad range of scientific disciplines, to join us and study in one of the most exciting, rigorous research environments available.
