    2022 PhD students needed

    I am looking for PhD students starting September 2022. If you are interested in cold atom theory, please contact me.

    Brief Description of the PhD program

    PhD students need to choose preferred advisors during application (see links for theory and experiments projects, my projects are T17 and T18). PhD Students without a master degree are expected to graduate in four years (12 unites of course work, about 4 courses). Those with a master degree are expected to graduate in three years. Fees and financial support are as follows:

    1. Postgraduate studentship: 18,025 HKD (around 2323 USD) per month with medial insurance. Particularly outstanding ones can get 26,600 HKD (around 3430 USD) per month (HKPFS awardees)
    2. Accommodations provided by CUHK cost 1,800 to 3,700 HKD per month
    3. Tuition fee: 42,100 HKD (local or HKPFS awardees free of tuition)
    4. Scholarship opportunities:
      • HKSAR Government Scholarship Fund
      • CN Yang Scholarship
      • Science Faculty Scholarships
      • Scholarships and prizes offered by the University

    Please refer to CUHK’s application link for more information.
