Applications are invited for two University funded PhD studentships, one in theory, one in experiment, to develop radically new self-assembly approaches for creating nanoscale light sources on a silicon chip. This technological breakthrough will pave the way for photonic integrated circuits, allowing us to build ultra-fast and low power consumption computers based on light (rather than electron) transport. Specifically, working as part of a multidisciplinary team, the PhD students will be responsible for modelling, fabricating and characterising the behaviour of hybrid metal-dielectric nanostructures on a silicon chip on multiple length scales.
To celebrate the University's research successes, the University of Hull is offering a full-time UK/EU PhD Scholarship or International Fees Bursary for candidates applying for each of the following projects.
Closing date: Thursday 8 February 2018
Studentships will start on 17 September 2018
For further information, please contact Dr Martin Buzza.
Full-time UK/EU PhD Scholarships will include fees at the ‘home/EU' student rate and maintenance (£14,553 in 2017/18) for three years, depending on satisfactory progress.
Full-time International Fee PhD Studentships will include full fees at the International student rate for three years, dependent on satisfactory progress.
PhD students at the University of Hull follow modules for research and transferable skills development and gain a Masters level Certificate, or Diploma, in Research Training, in addition to their research degree.
Successful applicants will be informed of the award as soon as possible and by 28 February 2018 at the latest.
