PhD and Postdoc Positions

Fully funded PhD scholarships are available for 2016
The projects will involve applied and theoretical research into materials for nano-photonics and nanoscale electronics.
Typically the scholarships will start in Sept 2016 or January 2017 but it may be possible to join  ACTAlab as a researcher before the scholarship starts. Applications for the January intake should be recieved before sept 2016.
Examples of current projects include:
  • Design of two-dimensional chalcogenide crystal heterostructures
  • Design of chalcogenide tuned mid-infrared photonic filters
  • Design of chalcogenide tuneable phase change displays
We are particularly interested in students who have studied courses in:
  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Materials Science
  • Electronic Engineering
  • Photonics
  • Applied Mathematics
To be considered for a PhD position in ACTAlab we require the potential students to have a good command of English (TOEFL> 90, or IELTS >6.5).
