About the Project

The Extreme Light Group at the University of Glasgow announces the opening of a 3.5 year PhD studentship, starting from 1st October 2021, in quantum imaging. The position is fully funded, covering all fees for UK and potentially international candidates.

The Extreme Light Group is part of a diverse and exciting research environment with focus on fundamentals of quantum physics, quantum and computational imaging, metamaterials, bio-imaging and healthcare technology. Students will receive postgraduate teaching and skills training as part of the SUPA (Scottish Universities Physics Alliance) partnership, as well as cutting-edge research training in optics, computational techniques including cutting edge AI and machine learning techniques applied to imaging. Financial support is available for presenting results at national and international conferences and visiting international collaborators.

The PhD project will be on “Computational and quantum imaging for life sciences”. We will leverage the broad range of imaging technologies and in particular next-generation single photon sensitive cameras, combined with computational techniques and AI to solve imaging problems including imaging through diffuse media, such as brain tissue, but with applications also for novel technologies that can assist deaf/blind and provide solutions for healthcare and homes of the future (see for example our recently project, QUEST: https://healthcare-quest.com/). 

You will join a friendly and enthusiastic team of 20+ researchers and you will also form part of our collaborations within the University of Glasgow, for example with Engineering and Computing Science with whom we work in very close contact. This is truly cross-disciplinary research project that can be tailored so as to put more emphasis on the aspects that you enjoy the most.

Applicants should have a first class Honours/Bachelor’s or an upper second class Master’s degree in Physics or Engineering.

We intend to reach a decision on the candidate early 2021, so please apply soon!

Please apply online via our Physics and Astronomy Graduate School https://www.gla.ac.uk/schools/physics/research/postgraduate/
