Project Description

The new Microstructure Nonlinear Optics (MNO) research group at Institute of Photonics and Quantum Sciences in Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh are offering a fully-funded PhD position to thoroughly explore different nonlinear interactions in novel microstructured fibres and silicon waveguides for developing new classical and quantum applications.

The MNO group is equipped with the state-of-the-art workstations and the essential software packages. We are seeking a self-motivated student who will acquire a potential experience in the fields of nonlinear optics, quantum optics, and silicon photonics during their PhD programme.

The proposed work will involve extensive analytical research and numerical simulations. Collaboration with other groups inside and outside the host institution is also a part of the project to demonstrate the theoretical predictions. This is an exciting opportunity to embark on potentially exciting and ground-breaking research within a first-rate institution.

Based in a modern environment on the outskirts of Edinburgh, with excellent transport links to the centre of one of Europe’s most exciting cities

All applicants must have or expect to have a master’s degree by Autumn 2019. Selection will be based on academic excellence and research potential, and all short-listed applicants will be interviewed (in person or by Skype). You will also need to show that you are self-motivated and thoroughly committed to the programme.

The review of applications will start immediately until the position is filled. If you want to take the next step in your academic and research career, apply now!
