Quantum technologies involve the control and manipulation of quantum states to achieve results not possible with classical matter; they promise a transformation of measurement, communication and computation. We are looking for outstanding postgraduate students to work on the experimental development of these technologies as part of their PhD work. Students will be able to choose from amongst the wide range of research in experimental quantum technologies at UCL, from solid state devices based on isotopically engineered silicon, carbon nanomaterials and III-V materials and novel semiconductors, to trapped atomic and molecular systems. The research projects will involve combinations of some or all of the following: nanofabrication, spintronics, atomic and laser physics, quantum transport, low temperature physics, photonics and more, and there will be opportunities for research visits to national and international collaborators, in both academia and industry.
The studentships are part of UCL’s Doctoral Programme in Quantum Science and Technology (EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training and Skill’s Hub). Students will benefit from a broad training year leading to an MRes, covering all the disciplines underlying quantum technologies, followed by three years of research, leading to the award of a PhD. The start date of the studentships will be in September 2017.
We will be looking for candidates with an outstanding academic record (first class honours in Physics, Engineering, Computer Science or a closely related subject at UK undergraduate Masters level or equivalent) coupled with a broad outlook and a strong interest in quantum technologies.
The studentships are open to students of any nationality (UK, EU & Overseas students).
Application is via the UCLQ website. You will need a CV, transcript of your undergraduate marks, names and contact details of at least two academic referees, and a brief (250-word) statement giving your reasons for applying and an outline of your research interests. The deadline for applications is May 10th.
