PhD Studentship (3 years)

Aston University - School of Engineering and Applied Science

Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA), Innovative Training Networks (ITN), project FONTE – Fibre Optic Non-linear Technologies

Development of new optical transmission methods based on nonlinear Fourier transform.

Applications are invited for a three year prestigious Postgraduate studentship as MSCA Early Stage Researcher, supported the School of Engineering and Applied Science through MSCA ITN European Industrial Doctorates project FONTE, to be undertaken within the Aston Institute of Photonic Technologies (AIPT) [] at Aston University.  The successful applicant will join an established experimental group working on the applications of the nonlinear Fourier transform signal processing method for the fibre nonlinearity mitigation and the development of the new generation of extra-high-capacity optical networks and related concepts.  Secondments: The studentship is offered in collaboration with world-leading industrial unit: Nokia Bell Labs (NBL), Stuttgart, Germany (no less than 18 months at NBL). The project research time and trainings will be equally split between AIPT and NBL. Close collaboration and visits to other three FONTE partners, Technical University of Denmark, Telecom ParisTech (France), and Technical University of Delft (the Netherlands), will be carried out along the project.
