This well-established EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Photonic Integration & Advanced Data Storage delivers a 4-year doctoral training programme under the partnership between Queen’s University Belfast and the University of Glasgow and additional collaboration partner the Irish Photonic Integration Centre (IPIC).
We provide opportunities for highly motivated applicants to research novel scientific and engineering developments in highly manufacturable photonic and integration technologies with far-reaching applications related to the storage of digital information, telecommunications, healthcare and beyond.
Applicants are currently invited to apply through the CDT PIADS website.
For Cohort 2019 there are three different entry routes into the programme. Industrial EngD, Industrial PhD and “Open Entry”.
EngD studentships carry an additional £5k p.a. on top of the standard tax-free stipend.
CDT student benefit from easy access to state of the art experimental and computational facilities at the Kelvin Nanocharacterisation Centre and the James Watt Nanofabrication Centre at the University of Glasgow, the Centre for Nanostructured Media at Queen’s University Belfast and through IPIC in Cork, the Centre for Advanced Photonics & Process Analysis.
Undertake research projects broadly falling under five themes:
