PhD Studentships, Department of Physics & Astronomy, University of Sussex, UK

PhD Studentship: Inertial sensors and lattices for Quantum Technology
A 3.5 year PhD position is available in in the Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics Group with Prof. Barry Garraway in the Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Sussex.

University of Sussex, UKThe position consists of current fees and a yearly stipend of £14296 which can be supplemented by tutoring. The position also includes an annual travel allowance. You should have a physics, electrical engineering or related degree.

The physics of ultra-cold atoms provides fantastic opportunities for the development of new ideas with applications such as new and more precise sensors in quantum technology. This theory project is expected to co-operate with experimental work: the PhD student will take a leading role in the development of techniques for the control of ultra-cold atoms. The work aims to make theoretical studies of quantum systems in topologies such as atoms in elongated traps, rings, lattices, shells and toroids. The work may have applications to interferometry, rotation sensing, accelerometers and quantum information processing.

The project will build on recent proposals to make microwave loop traps [1] and lattices [2] for ultra-cold atoms that may be used for model condensed matter simulations and quantum information processing on a grid. For a recent review of related work see [3]. The project is mostly theoretical, but there may be an opportunity for experimental work, too. The project will be connected to work in the UK Quantum Technology hub in sensors and metrology as the work in this project is highly relevant, as underpinning science, to the development of quantum technologies.

The University of Sussex is located a short distance from the city of Brighton and Hove. It is a vibrant seaside location, boasting beautiful views and a huge range of activities and attractions. The city has great transport links, and the area is surrounded by unique villages and the South Downs National Park.

PhD Studentships in Computational Fabrication and Graphics, University of Sussex, UK

Multiple PhD Studentships: Application of Graphics and computational fabrication techniques for novel 3D printed acoustic devices (2018)

University of Sussex, UK

Multiple PhD studentships in computational fabrication and graphics are available in the Interact Lab of the University of Sussex.

Type of award
Postgraduate Research

PhD project
Multiple PhD studentships in computational fabrication and graphics are available in the Interact Lab of the University of Sussex from October 2018. The project will be supervised by Sriram Subramanian (https://scholar.google.com/citations?user=CO9UQcsAAAAJ&hl=en).

Our group is interested in exploring the use of 3D printed structures to shape and sculpt sound input sound fields. These 3D printed structures are often called metamaterials and can be used to create acoustic lenses and mirrors. Using these structures, we can create novel haptic devices, speakers and many new interactive experiences.

This project will involve using computer graphics techniques to model and analyse these structures to make structures that are efficient and effective in manipulating input sound fields. This project will give you the opportunity to collaborate in a novel field of cutting edge research in a highly applied and fast moving area. The successful candidate will engage with many ongoing research collaborators in UK, Denmark, Sweden and USA. In addition to undertaking high quality research and publishing in top graphics and HCI conferences/ journals, the group also creates significant impact by developing technology that is integrated into different industry products.

The Development of Relief PhD Studentship, Queen’s University Belfast, UK

Children’s ability to experience the emotion of relief is poorly understood. This PhD project will aim to determine: (1) when the ability to experience relief develops during childhood; (2) how the development of the ability to experience relief relates to developments in children’s abilities to think about time; and (3) whether the emerging ability to experience relief plays a role in children’s decision making.

The project will be based in the School of Psychology at Queen’s University Belfast and be supervised by Professor Teresa McCormack and Dr Aidan Feeney. The successful candidate will be part of a larger interdisciplinary project on relief, funded by the Leverhulme Trust, involving Queen’s University Belfast and the Universities of Warwick and Birmingham.

The Student
The studentship is open to all applicants although applicants from outside the EU/UK will be required to cover the annual difference between Home/EU and the overseas tuition fee rates.

Candidates should have an excellent academic track record. Experience of developmental research and an interest in cognitive or emotional development are desirable. The student will be expected to design and carry out experimental studies in schools and in the laboratory and to analyse data using appropriate statistical methods. Publication of research findings will be encouraged and supported.

PhD Scholarships in Intellectual Property, Queen Mary University of London, UK

New PhD students undertaking full-time research in the area of Intellectual Property (IP) can apply for a Herchel Smith Scholarship to start in the 2018-19 academic year. The award covers three years of study while in full time enrolment, subject to satisfactory annual progress reports.

The award will cover all tuition fees whether at the Home/EU rate or the overseas rate. It is therefore open to both UK and non-EU applicants. In addition, an award of around £16,500 per year (reviewed annually) will be paid to the recipient on a monthly basis throughout the calendar year starting from September 2018.

What are Scholarship holders required to do?
Successful recipients of this award are not required to undertake any teaching or research assistant duties, but they are expected to participate in the Intellectual Property community at Queen Mary University of London.

Who can apply?
The Herchel Smith PhD Scholarship Programme recognises and supports exceptional full-time students who show the potential to make an outstanding contribution to intellectual property law. This programme supports PhD students in intellectual property law and those working at the intersection of intellectual property law and other areas of sciences and humanities.

The award is for new applicants who will enrol at the start of the coming academic year, in September 2018. Therefore, current PhD students who enrolled prior to September 2018 are not eligible to apply for the award.

Also, applicants should note that our PhD programme only has one entry point each year – in September. Given that most LLM courses in the UK end with graduation in November (and that entry on to our PhD programme is dependent upon applicants obtaining a certain grade on their LLM so as to meet our academic entry requirements), so this means current LLM students who will graduate in November 2018 could only begin their studies with us in September 2019, and thus aren’t eligible to apply for this award this coming year (unless they have previously graduated from an LLM degree taken earlier).
