  The contradictory functions of carotenoid-based light-harvesters: Understanding energy harvesting and dissipation in the Fucoxanthin-Chlorophyll Protein (FCP)
  Dr C Duffy
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Biological and Chemical Sciences at Queen Mary is one of the UK’s elite research centres, according to the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF).
  Nanomaterials as White Light Emitters for Low Cost Lighting
  Research Group: Chemistry and Biosciences
  Dr S Hickey, Dr W Martin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

White-light emission (WLE) from semiconductor nanostructures is presently a research area of intense interest especially where the primary objective is to replace conventional light sources by environmentally friendly materials in order to minimize energy costs and therefore the global energy consumption for lighting.
  A source of quantum light for atom magnetometry
  Dr V Boyer
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

When using classical light, optical measurements and light-based sensing methods are limited by the unavoidable quantum fluctuations in phase and amplitude, also known as shot noise.
  Biophysics of light-induced motility in microalgae
  Dr M Polin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

At a glance. The project focusses on the mechanisms by which motile microalgae (prominent e.g. within phytoplankton) sense, elaborate and respond to light.
  Transcription factors mediating light input to the Arabidopsis circadian clock
  Dr P Devlin
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The circadian clock is tightly tied to the light environment. Transcriptional feedback loops are able to generate a self-sustaining rhythm of approximately 24 hours which impinges on almost every aspect of physiology in higher organisms.
  Production of carotenoids from Dunaliella salina: Process development with red-light for large scale production
  Dr Y Xu, Dr P J Harvey
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

9-cis β-carotene has been implicated to play a central role in protecting against diseases including retinal dystrophies, chronic plaque psoriasis and atherosclerosis, and can be produced in high concentration by the halotolerant green microalga Dunaliella salina, especially in the presence of red light.
  Light emitting two-dimensional materials for silicon emitters
  Research Group: Condensed Matter Physics
  Dr Y Wang, Prof T Krauss
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Silicon photonics has been widely recognized as the potential technology to achieve broadband, high-density, high-speed data interconnections for next generation computing.
  Biogenesis of chloroplasts and development of leaves under light control
  Dr E Lopez-Juez
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research in our lab addresses two of the fundamental biogenesis processes that make plants essential for humanity. the development of leaves and the biogenesis of chloroplasts in leaf cells.
  PhD in Physics and Astronomy - Atomic spin polarisation in vector light fields - building a portable one-shot magnetometer
  Dr S Franke-Arnold
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Optics Group at the University of Glasgow in collaboration with the Fraunhofer Centre for Applied Photonics would like to announce the opening of a 3.5 year PhD studentship commencing on 1st October 2019.
  Computational Biomedical Imaging: building a better light-sheet microscope
  Dr J Taylor, Prof A Harvey
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A PhD studentship is available in the Imaging Concepts Group at Glasgow University, researching computational imaging for light sheet fluorescence microscopy (LSFM).
