The PIADS Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) is a partnership between Queens University Belfast (QUB), the University of Glasgow (UoG) and the Irish Photonic Integration Centre (IPIC). We provide opportunities for applicants to research novel scientific and engineering developments in highly manufacturable photonic integration technologies with far-reaching applications related to the storage of digital information, telecommunications, biophotonics, healthcare and beyond.
CDT students undertake a diverse and exciting range of topical doctoral research projects which span physics, materials and electrical and optical engineering. They benefit from access to state of the art experimental and computational facilities at the James Watt Nanofabrication Centre and the Kelvin Nano Characterisation Centre at UoG, alongside the ANSIN advanced material research and development hub at QUB as well as in-house laboratories and semiconductor fabrication facilities at Tyndall National Institute.
WORKING WITH INDUSTRY
Designed and delivered in close consultation with our impressive range of industrial partners, the PIADS doctoral programme provides exciting sponsored PhD and EngD opportunities with Seagate Technology, Sivers Semiconductors, Fraunhofer and others.
“Photonics is a major growth area both in the UK and worldwide. Integrated photonics is a key driver and its application to data storage is set to underpin significant technology development. This CDT is therefore excellently positioned to drive forward vital R&D and ensure the provision of the necessary industrial skills.”
- Mat Wasley, Knowledge Transfer Manager for Photonics, Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN).
Committed to providing an inclusive environment in which diverse students can thrive, the CDT particularly encourages applications from women, disabled and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates, who are currently under-represented in the sector.
