Physics leads us to research which spans from the beginning of the Universe to the deepest level workings of matter and the fundamental forces of nature which govern the inner and outer workings of everything. Through the study of physics our students gain skills to analyse completely new problems and to develop the necessary methods to solve the given problems. This is why physicists, in addition to scientific research, are equipped to work in any field such as business, the social sector, computing, medicine and many more. We at Lincoln aim to teach our students not only the tools to solve complex problems but also physics concepts so that they gain a deeper understanding of the subject. Our aim is to support our students such that they can achieve their life goals and aspirations and be of service to the wider society.

Lincoln teaches a relatively small number of subjects in order to provide strength in depth to our students and to ensure that our Fellows can continue to pursue their own research. In most cases this means that we have two full-time, tenured Fellows per subject, and one career development Fellow
Lincoln has recently been able to endow a Physics Fellowship completely and in perpetuity thanks to the generosity of Walter Stern (1935), John and Pat Cuckney (1960), Alan and Linda Montgomery (1963) and a number of other donors. This has given us the flexibility to recruit a second Fellow, and to support a Stipendiary Lecturer in the subject.
Successes: Recent endowment of the Walter Stern Fellowship in physics.
