Candidates will be joining a cohort of new and existing researchers, working together on quantum technologies. As part of the UK National Quantum Technology Programme, researchers are invited to events and activities at both national and international levels. QuantIC will, where possible, support with travel to assist with the dissemination of your research and knowledge-based networking.
QuantIC’s research spans numerous areas, such as the development of technologies for the detection and timing of light. Examples include:
- Quantum illumination, to beat classical resolution limits or image at alternative wavelengths
- Imaging systems for autonomous vehicles, and underwater navigation
- New medical imaging techniques for brain scanning, life sciences and diagnosis
- Detection of greenhouse gases for monitoring of leaks
- Next generation superconducting single-photon detectors for use in fundamental physics
QuantIC will provide the facilities so that you will develop an understanding of quantum photonics, the design and engineering quantum imaging systems, experimental apparatus and information processing through to co-working with our end users to demonstrate quantum advantage over the incumbent classical technology.
In all these areas you will work within a team on stimulating projects in world leading research groups and labs, developing exciting new technology. You will receive a tax-free stipend of £18,622 per year (rising in line with UKRI rates) with your PhD tuition fees paid.
We’re looking for 5 new PhD students (with a 1st or 2:1 degree qualification). There are no prerequisites required in terms of laboratory or coding experience, but enthusiasm is essential, as well as a willingness to learn skills in many different areas of science and engineering.
To apply, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a C.V and cover letter before 29th September 2023.
