The Centre for Nanostructured Media with over forty members is involved in a range of research projects in advanced nanoscale functional materials and nanophotonics.
We are offering five fully funded PhD studentships associated with major externally funded research projects in the following topics for immediate start.
- New Plasmonic Materials for Heat Assisted Magnetic Recording - In collaboration with Seagate Technology
- Nanostructured Novel Plasmonic Materials for Heat Assisted Magnetic Recording - In collaboration with Seagate Technology
- Low Resistance Magnetoresistive Devices for Spintronics - In collaboration with EC FP7 Project MOSAIC, http://www.fp7-mosaic.eu/home/
- Femtojoule-per-bit Communications with Nanopillar Lasers on Si - In collaboration with Cork Institute of Technology (Ireland) and UCLA (USA)
- Nanoscale Physics and Electrochemistry of Ferroic Oxides
Applicants should have, or expect to receive, a minimum of a 2:1 (or equivalent) Bachelors degree in physics, materials science, electronic engineering or a closely related subject. Applicants with an MSc (or equivalent) in similar topics are also encouraged to apply.
Applications for the studentships citing your chosen title/s should be made via the Queen's University Student Portal at:
Please note that the studentships comprising University fees and a maintenance grant (£13,726 for 2013-14) are funded by various sources with different funding eligibility criteria.
