We are one of the top physics departments in the UK for research.
REF2014 ranked us 2nd in the UK for the number of research outputs judged to be of internationally leading (4 star) quality, with 28% of our publications in this top bracket.
Research in the Physics Department is structured into four divisions. Each division has a world-class team of research-active staff at the forefront of research in their respective fields. We place great importance on bringing this world-leading research into our teaching, and into our schools and public engagement programme.
Starting a Masters by Research or PhD at Lancaster University is an ideal way to begin your own research career.
