  Doctor of Engineering (EngD): Computational Techniques for the Flat Imager
  Prof D Reid
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

MBDA has patented a novel infrared (IR) imaging device known within the company as the Flat Imager. The Flat Imager is similar in design to a TOMBO* imaging system, in so far as the device will capture multiple similar images of a scene.
  Doctor of Engineering (Eng D): Process optimisation strategies for multiple COSI techniques
  Prof D Reid, Dr C Clemente, Prof S Marshall
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

MBDA is expanding its research into Computational Optical Sensing and Imaging (COSI). One area of interest is Structured Imaging using, for example, Ladar (Laser Detecting and Ranging) to map a scene in real-time.
  Doctor of Engineering (EngD) Short pulse lasers for machining composite materials (Luxinar)
  Prof D Reid, Prof D Esser
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project not available to non UK/EU applicants. The EngD is an alternative to a traditional PhD aimed at students wanting a career in industry.
  Multiscale modelling of shale gas flows
  Dr M Borg, Dr L Gibelli
Application Deadline: 30 September 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The University of Edinburgh is seeking an excellent student to award a prestigious PhD scholarship to investigate the behaviour of methane gas inside porous rock media.
  I/O and storage for extreme scale multi-physics multi-scale simulations of aero engines
  Dr M Weiland
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Engineering simulations, in particular multi-physics and multi-scale whole engine simulations, such as those targeted by the ASiMoV Prosperity Partnership…
  Frontiers of ultrafast laser fabrication
  Prof R Thomson
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ultrafast lasers offer unprecedented fabrication capabilities in terms of precision and three-dimensional flexibility. These capabilities are opening up previously impossible capabilities, such as three-dimension nano-lithography in bulk crystals [1], and the creation of unique mode-selective fibre Bragg-gratings [2].
  Novel platforms for integrated quantum devices based on rare earth doped insulating materials
  Dr M Mazzera
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We offer a 3-year PhD position for a talented, proactive, and strongly motivated candidate who will contribute building a new setup with potential for ground breaking scientific research in the field of solid-state quantum memories for quantum communication applications.
  Doctor or Engineering (EngD): Electro-optic devices for extreme LIDAR in highly dynamic environments
  Prof D Reid
Application Deadline: 30 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project Description. LIDAR / LADAR has become widespread in recent years, and uses pulse lasers to make time of flight measurements in order to build up a digital model of a scene.
  Seismic history matching and machine learning, Edinburgh Time-Lapse Project
  Research Group: Institute of GeoEnergy Engineering
  Prof C MacBeth, Dr R Chassagne
Application Deadline: 1 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

The current oil and gas fields are now challenging to produce and the time for easy extraction is gone. More complex and accurate representations of the field with models are required to take any decision concerning field development.
  Doctor of Engineering (EngD): Optical Fibre Sensing for Offshore Renewable Energy (Fraunhofer)
  Dr W N MacPherson, Dr Brian Sellar
Application Deadline: 30 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Project not available to non UK/EU applicants. Project Description. Distributed optical fibre sensing is a topic of great industrial relevance.
  Tracking granular flows using instrumented grains
  Dr S Papanicolopulos
Application Deadline: 21 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Granular materials are ubiquitous in nature (e.g. sand and other soils) and in industry (e.g. corn, sugar, detergents, pharmaceutical tablets, pellets).
  Miniature femtosecond laser frequency combs for astrophotonics and quantum metrology
  Prof D Reid
Application Deadline: 5 December 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

This project concerns the development and application of Yb-based femtosecond lasers operating at pulse repetition rates in the few-GHz range, and their stabilisation as full “frequency combs” using novel nonlinear supercontinuum devices.
  Doctor of Engineering (EngD) - Ultrafast laser inscription of components for quantum technologies
  Prof A Kar, Prof D Reid
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Ultrafast Laser Inscription technique exploits the high fields present at the focus of an ultrafast pulse train to modify transparent materials.
  Digital Education in STEM: automated evaluation of students interacting with remote laboratories
  Prof T Drysdale
Application Deadline: 8 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Remote laboratories comprise experimental apparatus that can be observed and controlled in real time, from a remote location. When used in undergraduate education, remote laboratories allow more active learning to be included in a course than would otherwise be possible.
  Index-near-zero-embedded optical resonators
  Dr M Ferrera
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Optical cavities (nanoantennas, micro-ring resonators, Fabry-Perot nanocavities, etc.) immersed in an index-near-zero environment will be modelled, fabricated, and characterised.
  Ultra-nonlinear epsilon-near-zero flat optics
  Dr M Ferrera
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Design and characterisation of different artificial materials for the design of ultra-fast tuneable photonics devices. Giant epsilon-near-zero nonlinearities are targeted to allow subwavelength manipulation of light in both classic and quantum regime.
