  Fully-funded PhD studentship - III-nitride semiconductors and devices
  Prof T Wang
Application Deadline: 31 October 2019

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited for a fully-funded 3.5 year PhD studentship to work on (1) Advanced MOVPE epitaxial growth of novel III-nitride semiconductors and advanced material characterisation (2) Advanced fabrication of the integrated devices combining III-nitride and other III-V semiconductors.
  Novel synthesis & characterisation methods for metal-organic nanosheets
  Dr J Foster
Applications accepted all year round

PhD Type

Nanomaterials are set to revolutionise every aspect of our lives from electronics to medicine. The remarkable properties shown by graphene have led to the development of a wide variety of other two-dimensional materials.
  Live Plants Imaging: investigating signalling and response mechanisms
  Dr A Chauvet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

To achieve food security, we can improve the efficiency of food production while reducing the use and cost of pesticides. To tackle both challenges, efficiency and cost, we propose to select crop varieties that are more resilient against pests and diseases.
  Photocatalytic Thin Films: probing the early antibacterial properties of metallic thin films
  Dr A Chauvet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Have you ever wondered about self-cleaning surfaces. an object that cleanse itself just by shining light on it? Such technology already exists, and the field is fast developing.
  Quantum Control: shaping light to enhance chemistry
  Dr A Chauvet
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

By modulating the light with which you excite materials we can enhance specific electronic, nuclear and even chemical reactions! The goal is therefore to set up a MIIPS pulse shaper and to adapt it to our Helios transient absorption system..
  Toward Artificial Photosynthesis: understanding how porphyrin’s structure and environment influence the early electronic and nuclear dynamics
  Dr A Chauvet
Applications accepted all year round

The Sun represents an unlimited source of energy that can be harvested and ultimately converted to electricity. Solar energy is therefore the solution to not only depart from fossil fuels, but also to respond to the ever-increasing energy needs of our society.
  Towards heterogeneous integration of photonic and electronic devices in microsystems
  Prof J Heffernan, Dr K Groom
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

A funded PhD Studentship (UK/EU only) is available for research into III-V compound semiconductor structures tailored specifically for integration within a micro-transfer print process for heterogeneous integration of photonic and electronic devices in microsystems.
  Gravitaitonal wave research with LIGO
  Research Group: Particle Physics and Particle Astrophysics
  Prof E Daw
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The gravitational wave research group at Sheffield partakes in a variety of research as a member group of the LIGO Scientific Collaboration.
  Nano-magnetism in atomically thin 2D quantum materials and their heterostructures
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof A Tartakovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Following the discovery of graphene, a large family of layered crystals has attracted significant attention. The properties of these materials range from superconductors and metals, to semiconductors and insulators.
  Single photon emitters in atomically thin 2D semiconductors for quantum technology applications
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof A Tartakovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Following the discovery of graphene a large family of layered crystals has attracted significant attention. Surprisingly, single photon emission from unusual defect states was found in several 2D semiconductors called transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs).
