  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.
  Nonlinear dispersive partial differential equations (Pure Mathematics PhD)
  Dr Y Wang
Application Deadline: 31 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project is mainly about well-posedness theory (existence, uniqueness of the solution, and stability of solutions under small perturbation) and global dynamics (scattering vs blow-up) of initial value problem of dispersive equations.
  Stress modulated antiferromagnetism in thin film heterostructures
  Prof A J Bell
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

In the challenge to develop new, high- density logic and memory devices, the concept of employing electron spin transport as the data vector (i.e.
  Topological insulator plasmonics
  Dr J Freeman
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Topological insulators (TIs) are a new type of material that has recently been discovered. They have highly conductive surface states, while their ‘bulk’ remains insulating.
  Antiferromagnetic Spintronics: Understanding the strain
  Dr J Barker
Application Deadline: 3 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Ferromagnetic materials have underpinned data storage technology for decades. This is not just for the data storage but also for ‘spintronic’ components such as magneto-resistive field sensors and magnetic tunnel junctions.
  Quantum thermodynamics at the nanoscale
  Dr N Ares
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The theory of thermodynamics, commonly associated with the steam engines of the 19th century, is a universal set of laws that governs everything from black holes to the evolution of life.
  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.
  Strong light-matter interaction in van der Waals 2D materials: discovery of novel quantum states of the matter
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof A Tartakovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

The isolation of single-atomic layer graphene has led to a surge of interest in a large family of layered crystals with strong in-plane bonds and weak van der Waals interlayer coupling.
  Sub-wavelength all-dielectric nano-photonics: 2D materials and beyond
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof A Tartakovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

So far nano-photonics has dealt with dielectric devices relying on confining light in diffraction-limited volumes. Beating the diffraction limit by confining light on sub-wavelength scales has been only possible with plasmonic structures made of nano-structured metal, which unavoidably suffer from large optical losses.
  Van der Waals 2D materials: optical manifestations of the quantum physics of moiré superlattices
  Research Group: Inorganic Semiconductors
  Prof A Tartakovskii
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atomically-thin layers of two-dimensional materials can be assembled in vertical stacks (called ‘heterostructures’), which are held together by relatively weak van der Waals forces, allowing for coupling between monolayer crystals with incommensurate lattices and arbitrary mutual rotation, or ‘twist’.
