  A light source for quantum computing and simulation
  Dr A Bennett
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

3.5 years October 2020. We seek a motivated PhD student to work on semiconductor quantum light sources. Light is an ideal carrier of quantum information as photons are fast, cheap and easy to encode with quantum-bits carried in their polarisation, phase, time or path degrees of freedom.
  Optical Simultons in Atomic Vapours
  Dr R M Potvliege, Dr S A Wrathmall
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Applications are invited by the Quantum, Light and Matter group of Durham University for a theoretical Ph.D. project on the formation and control of simultons in atomic media (two-colour solitonlike optical pulses, which can propagate with little attenuation over surprisingly long distances).
  Doctor of Philosophy (PhD): Photonic Sensors for Measuring Green House Gas Emissions in Dairy and Arable Production: Sustainable Precision Agriculture (University of Strathclyde and SRUC Barony Campus)
  Research Group: CDT in Applied Photonics
  Prof D Reid, Prof C Michie
Application Deadline: 30 April 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The global population is predicted to reach 9 Billion by 2050. As a consequence, increasing competition for land resource against a backdrop of climate change agricultural practices are presenting farmers with a range of challenges to improve operational efficiency and reduce greenhouse emissions.
  2D material enhanced nonlinear integrated photonics (EPS2020/19)
  Dr M Ferrera
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project focuses on studying the nonlinear optical properties of numerous 2D materials and how to interface them with low-loss integrated photonics for the creation of novel ultra-fast all-optical devices.
  Dynamic wavefront engineering via epsilon-near-zero nonlinearities (EPS2020/20)
  Dr M Ferrera
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

By exploiting the remarkable nonlinearities of bulk and nanostructured thin films operating in their epsilon-near-zero frequency window, different device configuration will be explored for the efficient and ultra-fast manipulation of the optical wavefront.
  Next Generation Components for Quantum Communications (EPS2020/17)
  Prof G Buller
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Research on next generation quantum technologies including novel quantum information protocols, amplification of exotic quantum states and quantum random number generation.
  Novel platforms for integrated quantum devices based on rare earth doped insulating materials
  Dr M Mazzera
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

We offer a 3-year PhD position for a talented, proactive, and strongly motivated candidate who will contribute building a new setup with potential for ground breaking scientific research in the field of solid-state quantum memories for quantum communication applications.
  PhD in experimental quantum networking (EPS2020/14)
  Prof A Fedrizzi
Application Deadline: 30 June 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

A quantum network establishes entanglement between multiple nodes in a network, allowing secure communication over long distance but also distributed quantum computing and more.
  Quantum‑Enhanced Imaging (EPS2020/16)
  Prof G Buller
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Single‑Photon Group at Heriot‑Watt University offer a four year fully funded PhD position examining aspects of single‑photon and quantum‑enhanced imaging.
  Semiconductor Single‑Photon Detection in the Short-Wave Infrared (EPS2020/18)
  Prof G Buller
Application Deadline: 31 May 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Development of new experimental approaches to semiconductor based single‑photon detection via hybrid geometry/material single photon detectors.
  Quantum atomic gases and photons
  Prof J Ruostekoski
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

One of the success stories of quantum physics is how individual quantum particles have been controlled and manipulated for quite some time.
  PhD Vacancy - Mini-Fountain Cold Atom Clock: building a prototype of a small footprint cold-atom frequency standard
  Prof C Foot, Dr KS Szymaniec
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

EPSRC iCASE Oxford DPhil studentship in collaboration with the National Physical Laboratory, intended for EEA applicants. The digital infrastructure and economy we rely on as society requires wide access to reliable and accurate timing signals synchronized to robust and largely autonomous timescales.
  Full-time PhD Studentships available at The Open University (STEM Faculty)

Funding Type

PhD Type

The School of Physical Sciences (SPS) invites applications for full-time PhD studentships in the Physics research discipline. Details of the PhD projects we are offering this year can be found at.
