Quantitative theories of viral replication cycle: towards understanding COVID infections

The COVID-19 pandemic has been the largest cause of human mortality over the past two years. While vaccines have been developed to protect people against this deadly disease, cross-species infections and genetic mutations produce new infectious strains that continue to pose a risk to human life.

Industrial CASE PhD Studentship in “Quantum devices based on silicon carbide transistors”

Project details. The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and the Physics Department of the University of Strathclyde are offering an Industrial CASE PhD studentship in quantum technology. Read more

PhD in Engineering - Ultrafast Quantum Nanoelectronics with THz pulses

Quantum technology has been on the spotlight of UK’s research and innovation for the last few years. The ‘holy grail’ of all these efforts is to create the first ‘Quantum Computer’, which unlike our regular, ‘classical’ computers can perform operations exponentially faster and with higher accuracy.

Highly adaptable photonic quantum interfaces: wavelength and bandwidth conversion

The University of Bath is inviting applications for the following funded PhD project commencing in October 2022. The goal of this PhD project is to develop optical fibre devices to allow increased connectivity and flexibility in quantum information networks of the future. Read more

Optimised colour centre control for diamond quantum technologies

The development and implementation of quantum communication networks enables the possibility of deterministically secure links between remote nodes and is a necessary step in the realization of distributed quantum computing. Read more

Controlling spin qubits in diamond: towards building a quantum computer

Controlling spin qubits in diamond. towards building a quantum computer. If a quantum computer could be built with enough qubits, it would be able to solve problems that are intractable with the classical computers we have now. Read more

Waves, flares, oscillations – complex mechano-biochemical dynamics on the surface of vertebrate cells

  Research Group: Institute of Cell Biology
Looking to join a successful international project on the nexus of cutting edge biophysical modeling and biological experiment?. A PhD project is available to study complex nonlinear dynamics on the cell surface of large vertebrate cells, oocytes and embryos. Read more

Spatial and Temporal Structures in Attosecond Light

Advances in laser sources over the past three decades have allowed us to push nonlinear optics into extreme, highly non-perturbative regimes where large numbers of photons interact with matter and each other, often merging into high-order harmonics of the driving laser source and producing ultrafast light pulses lasting for mere attoseconds [1].

Caustics and Catastrophes in Strong-Field and Attosecond Processes

Recent advances in laser technology have provided us with ultra-intense laser sources with electric field strengths that can match and even exceed the internal forces that hold atoms together. Read more
