With the widespread use of mobile devices, the level of data traffic in the world is going up very quickly.
  EPSRC DTP studentship: Quantum coherence in single biomolecules measured by multidimensional optical micro-spectroscopy
  Prof W W Langbein, Prof P Borri, Dr E Muljarov, Dr F Masia
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Life is based on the intricate interactions between a multitude of biomolecules, including lipids, proteins, and DNA. They are dynamical in nature and maintain the non-equilibrium state of life.
  Optical decoherence and coherent coupling of excitons in quantum dots embedded in photonic cavities
  Research Group: Condensed Matter and Photonics
  Dr E Muljarov, Prof W W Langbein
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project in theoretical physics aims to study the coherent dynamics of optical excitations (excitons) in single and multiple semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) strongly coupled to photonic cavities.
  Quantum Optics of Giant Rydberg Excitons in Cuprous Oxide
  Prof W W Langbein, Dr S Lynch
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Cuprous oxide (Cu2O) is one the oldest, and yet least well-known, semiconductor material. It has a slightly larger band gap than silicon, which means that the single crystal form of the material is slightly transparent in the visible part of the spectrum.
  Tunable THz laser source
  Research Group: Condensed Matter and Photonics
  Prof P M Smowton, Prof C Tucker
Application Deadline: 31 July 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A fully tunable and efficient source of THz radiation is required for a large number of security and medical applications.
  PhD in Physics and Astronomy - Development and Testing of Multi-radiation Systems for the Characterisation of Nuclear Facilities
  Dr B Seitz
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

  PhD in Physics and Astronomy - Hadron Structure Experiments with the Jefferson Lab Super BigBite Spectrometer
  Dr R Montgomery, Dr D Hamilton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We have a PhD vacancy focusing on experiments studying nucleon and hadron structure and which will be performed at Jefferson Lab (USA).
  PhD in Physics and Astronomy - Light-sheet microscopy for structural and functional studies of cardiac conduction pathways
  Dr C Muellenbroich
Application Deadline: 15 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD studentship is available in the Imaging Concepts Group at Glasgow University, researching advanced light-sheet microscopy. The aim of the project is to develop new biophotonic tools for the optical study of structure and function of cardiac conduction pathways in murine hearts.
  PhD in Physics and Astronomy - Quantum Imaging: beating classical limits
  Prof M Padgett
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The laws of classical physics set fundamental limits on both the resolution and noise level of any imaging system. At Glasgow, as part of QuantIC a UK-wide quantum technology hub, we are using quantum physics to overcome these classical limits.
  Direct characterisation of TRPC channel dynamics triggered by drug-like modulators using high-speed atomic force microscopy
  Research Group: Molecular and Nanoscale Phsyics
  Dr G Heath
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The rapid expansion in the structural understanding of membrane proteins through recent progress in electron microscopy and X-ray crystallography is leading to an ever greater need for techniques which provide high temporal resolution dynamics.

  Dr Q Li, Prof P M Smowton
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Achieving high performance, long lifetime, and electrical injection silicon-based lasers will deliver the last missing building block in silicon photonics, a platform that can not only enable optical interconnects, but also serve other growth markets such as cluster computing, light detection and ranging (LIDAR), machine vision and environmental sensing.
  Active Colloidal-Quantum-Dot Light Emitting Devices: QD Laser and QD LEDs
  Dr BH Hou, Prof P M Smowton
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Realization of electrically pumped lighting and lasing with colloidal quantum dots will have a revolutionary impact on many disciplines including display, photonics, optical communication, chemical sensing, and medical diagnostics.
