  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
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
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
At a glance. The project focusses on the mechanisms by which motile microalgae (prominent e.g. within phytoplankton) sense, elaborate and respond to light.
  PhD Studentship in Nanophotonics, Plasmonics and Metamaterials: Extraordinary Nonlinearities of Light in Complex Media
  Prof O L Muskens
Application Deadline: 1 March 2019
Applications are invited for a postgraduate researcher to join a new research project in the Integrated Nanophotonics group at the University of Southampton.
  Transcription factors mediating light input to the Arabidopsis circadian clock
  Dr P Devlin
Applications accepted all year round
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.
  NIR Light-triggered delivery of viral vectors for gene therapies
  Dr S Jones
Applications accepted all year round
This project looks to develop a platform technology that utilises external stimuli, such as light for the triggered polymer un-coating of viral vectors for in-vivo targeted delivery.
  Light emitting two-dimensional materials for silicon emitters
  Dr Y Wang, Prof T Krauss
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Silicon photonics has been widely recognized as the potential technology to achieve broadband, high-density, high-speed data interconnections for next generation computing.
  Expressing the key photoprotective protein of diatom algae, LHCX1, in higher plants
  Prof A Ruban, Dr G Hanke
Application Deadline: 31 January 2019
Significance and timeliness. Photosynthetic organisms face rapid fluctuations in light intensity. High light is harmful, resulting in reduction in plant productivity [1].
  Epigenetic changes in Plant Acclimation.
  Prof T Lawson, Dr R Zabet
Application Deadline: 25 January 2019
Scientific background. Plants, including all our crop plants, live in a dynamic environment with external conditions varying over the day and season and these signals influence how a plant grows and how productive it is.
  Quantum Photonics based on Semiconductor Quantum Dots - exploring quantum states of light and their applications in quantum information technology
  Dr A Shields
Applications accepted all year round
Toshiba Research Europe Ltd (TREL) are developing quantum technologies based on superposition and entanglement that can be exploited for new applications in communications, sensing and computing.
