Project Description

Fully funded PhD studentships in the area of Quantum Systems Engineering for Quantum Technologies at Loughborough University: Knowledge based systems approach to Computer Aided Engineering of Quantum Technologies

The rapidly developing field of quantum technologies is set to have a transformative impact on core enabling technologies, from sensors to communications. There is a need for the crucial research that will develop new methods to enable the shift from laboratory devices and prototypes into manufacture and deployment. This studentship is part of a strategic investment in quantum systems engineering by Loughborough University, supporting a total of ten fully funded PhD studentships in the area of Quantum Systems Engineering for Quantum Technologies.

You will join the vibrant Quantum Systems Engineering Research Group which is leading research into the development of new systems methods and their application to quantum technologies. The group is a dynamic interdisciplinary team working across engineering and science (for details, please see: http://www.lboro.ac.uk/research/quantum-systems/).

The Project
You will join the modeling and simulation team. Your work will focus on develop an automated design tool that will operate beyond what a human can do by using knowledge-based machine learning to explore a comprehensive design space that incorporates Design for Reliability, Test and Manufacture to produce truly optimal quantum device designs for application in real-world technologies.

Eligibility
Candidates should hold, or expect to receive, a first or upper second class degree in physics, mathematics or relevant engineering discipline and meet the University entrance requirements.

For informal enquiries contact Dr Mark Everitt ([email protected] ) or Dr Vincent Dwyer ([email protected]).

To apply, please complete the online application using the following link: https://lucas.lboro.ac.uk/web_apx/f?p=100:1

Early application is advised. The studentships will be allocated as soon as a suitable candidate is found.

Please quote the following reference when applying: SCI-QSE-CDT-2. Under programme name, please select ‘Physics’

Closing date for applications: 28 February 2016

Funding Notes

This studentship is for 3 years and is intended to start on 1 October 2016. Each studentship provides a stipend of £14,057 per annum (15/16 RCUK rate) plus tuition fees at the UK/EU rate for up to three years. International (non EU) students may apply but will need to find the difference in fees between those for a ‘UK/EU’ and ‘international’ student themselves.
