Vacancies & Studentships
Application deadline: Various deadlines - please check the individual deadline for the institution you want to apply.
These EPSRC Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) studentships provide funding for a 3-year PhD. Applications are open right now and you will need to apply via the host university. Deadlines vary between each university.
Below is the list of studentships, including a link to the relevant application website and the email address of the lead supervisor, whom you can contact for further information. Further studentships are also listed with other vacancies further down this page.
Quantum networking of trapped-ion qubits, David Lucas (University of Oxford)
Hybrid Quantum-Classical DMFT simulations, Dieter Jaksch (University of Oxford)
Ultra-low loss optical switches for Ion trap entanglement, James Gates, Corin Gawith and Paul Gow (University of Southampton)
Microwave to optical conversion, Lapo Bogani, Edward Laird, Andrew Briggs, Martin Kiffner and Dieter Jaksch (University of Oxford)
An NQIT EPSRC DTP Studentship is available working in the Photonic Nanomaterials Group in the Department of Materials, University of Oxford, supervised by Professor Jason Smith.
This project will involve coupling diamond colour centres in single crystal membranes into optical microcavities to build efficient interfaces between coherent spin states and an optical network.
Our apparatus is now at the stage where we have demonstrated the first cavity-enhanced photon emission from a zero phonon line of a nitrogen vacancy centre in a diamond membrane. Further work is required to improve the quality of the colour centres in the membranes. The project will involve investigation of NV centres in membranes of different crystal orientations and using different material growth conditions.
Please contact Professor Jason Smith for more information.
