PhD Studentship in Space Instrumentation (MicroADS Mission), University of Sussex, UK

University of Sussex, UKApplications are invited for a prestigious fully-funded 3 year PhD studentship in Space Instrumentation at the University of Sussex. The successful applicant will join the MicroADS mission team in the Space Research Group. MicroADS is a novel satellite attitude determination system which offers star-tracker levels of performance in a much smaller instrument. It is anticipated that MicroADS will be flown on a LEO demonstrator mission in c.2021.

Type of award
Postgraduate Research

About the PhD Studentship
You will work on developing the MicroADS instrument hardware and on board instrument software, with the exact split between these activities determined by your aptitude and the instrument’s needs. Your work will include development and characterisation of the instrument optics, electronics, and interfaces with spacecraft systems. The PhD requires a strong practical/experimental background in physics and/or spacecraft engineering.

About the Space Research Group
The Space Research Group conducts fundamental and applied work in a variety of areas related to space science, spacecraft engineering, and high performance hardware for terrestrial environments. The group is particularly well known for its world-leading contributions in: X-ray spectrometers for astronomy and planetary science; e spectrometers for space plasma physics; radioisotope microbatteries; compound semiconductor material physics; spacecraft GNC systems; and extreme environment instrumentation. The Space Research Group is entrepreneurial, business-focused, and committed to the highest quality of scientific research.

About the PhD supervisor
The PhD will be supervised by Prof. Anna M. Barnett. Prof. Barnett is Professor of Space Research and Director of the Sussex Space Research Group. She is an experimental physicist with internationally recognised expertise in detector physics and instrumentation for space science and extreme terrestrial environments (high temperature, intense radiation). As of April 2018, Prof. Barnett holds research funding totalling >£2M in value. She has won numerous prizes and awards including the 2016 Philip Leverhulme Prize, and she is the youngest person ever awarded a Personal Chair at University of Sussex (equivalent to a US Full Professor with Tenure).

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).

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.
