PhD Studetnship Integrated Optical Elements for Miniaturised Atom Traps

University of Southampton, UK is inviting excellent students to apply for a PhD position in material sciences. The funds for this position are available for 5 years. The deadline for applying is April 30, 2020.

This project will involve development of glass on silicon waveguide components to couple light into magneto-optical traps. Working closely with partners in Southampton Physics Dept, Sussex University and Birmingham University the studentship will work on some of the most exciting challenges in miniaturisation of this important technology for real world applications.

With a background in physics, electronics, material science or engineering successful candidates will be enthusiastic to work in a multi-disciplinary team with top quality collaborators across the UK and worldwide. The work will involve cleanroom fabrication, optical design, testing, modelling and theoretical work.

Our world-leading research centre is a hive of activity with over 200 staff and students working on cutting-edge research to provide innovative solutions for real life problems in manufacturing, communication technology, defence, health care, renewable energy and the environment.

We are looking for the photonics pioneers of the future to join our vibrant research team and work alongside our world-class researchers to make history. Our physics and materials science PhD programme offers a solid start to any career in optics and photonics, whether you are planning to stay in academia or work in industry.

If you wish to discuss any details of the project informally, please contact Dr James Gates, Optical Engineering & Quantum Photonics Research Group, Email: Tel: +44 (0) 2380 59 78411.

A very good undergraduate degree (at least a UK 2:1 honours degree, or its international equivalent or MSc in physics, materials science, mechanical or electronic engineering).

Experimental skills are essential. In addition to the standard EPSRC PhD studentship, this position includes an annual allowance to enable attendance at international conferences. This post is open to UK and EU citizens only, due to standard EPSRC eligibility requirements

:applications should be received no later than 30 April 2020 for standard admissions, but later applications may be considered depending on the funds remaining in place.

Funding: full tuition plus, for UK students, an enhanced stipend of 18,000 tax-free per annum for up to 3.5 years.

Applications should be made online here selecting "PhD Optoelectronics (Full time)" as the programme. Please enter Peter Smith under the proposed supervisor.
