The PIADS Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) is a partnership between Queens University Belfast (QUB), the University of Glasgow (UoG) and the Irish Photonic Integration Centre (IPIC). We provide opportunities for applicants to research novel scientific and engineering developments in highly manufacturable photonic integration technologies with far-reaching applications related to the storage of digital information, telecommunications, biophotonics, healthcare and beyond.
CDT students undertake a diverse and exciting range of topical doctoral research projects which span physics, materials and electrical and optical engineering. They benefit from access to state of the art experimental and computational facilities at the James Watt Nanofabrication Centre and the Kelvin Nano Characterisation Centre at UoG, alongside the ANSIN advanced material research and development hub at QUB as well as in-house laboratories and semiconductor fabrication facilities at Tyndall National Institute.
Designed and delivered in close consultation with our impressive range of industrial partners, the PIADS doctoral programme provides exciting sponsored PhD and EngD opportunities with Seagate Technology, Compound Semiconductor Technologies Global and others.
