Fully funded PhD studentship in the area of Quantum Systems Engineering for Quantum Technologies at Loughborough University: Additive manufacture as a path to accelerated innovation in 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/).
You will join the additive manufacture team that is seeking to develop new techniques with the aim of providing affordable, desktop, 3D printing of quantum technologies that will accelerate innovation in quantum technologies, provide a platform upon which to test Systems Engineering methods, and may lead to a scalable path to manufacture.
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.
