About This PhD Project

Project Description

Applications are invited for a PhD position in the quantum science and technology of semiconductor nanostructures. Our research is carried out in very well equipped laboratories (see and seeks to observe new quantum physics and applications in specially designed and engineered nanostructures. Our research is based on III-V semiconductor nanostructures where we have world class fabrication facilities ( The PhD project will focus on new quantum optical phenomena enabled by nano-confinement, spin storage, and game-changing modifications to spontaneous emission processes, all performed at ultrafast picosecond timescales. The research will be carried out at telecommunications wavelengths as an integral part of the UK Quantum Communications Hub and of the Sheffield Quantum Centre (

Science Graduate School:
As a PhD student in one of the science departments at the University of Sheffield, you’ll be part of the Science Graduate School – a community of postgraduate researchers working across biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics and psychology. You’ll get access to training opportunities designed to support your career development by helping you gain professional skills that are essential in all areas of science. You’ll be able to learn how to recognise good research and research behaviour, improve your communication abilities and experience technologies that are used in academia, industry and many related careers.
