Department of Physics, University of Cambridge
Training future generations of physical scientists continues to be a central pillar of the Cavendish’s programme. The Laboratory attracts large numbers of the brightest young scientists from the UK and overseas at both undergraduate and graduate levels.
The Department operates on a devolved research basis, based upon a Research Group structure. Each Research Group has its own culture and strategy matched to the cutting edge of contemporary science in that area. Collaborative projects between groups are strongly encouraged.
The Research Group structure evolves over time in response to changing priorities and opportunities.
