We are always looking for new PhD students to join the HWQuantum group. There are a number of funding routes for places, including Heriot-Watt University scholarships, SUPA scholarships, and research council funding. For more information on places that are currently available, please contact Dr. Jonathan Leach.
Together with the Extreme Light group at Heriot-Watt, we currently have two post-doc positions available. These positions are for two years.
The research areas the applicants will work on include the following: using quantum technologies to enable aircraft to fly and land safely in degraded visual environments (i.e. sand and snowstorms); developing advanced systems to provide real-time information about objects hidden from view; and imaging in highly scattering media, such as the human body.
Applicants must have a PhD in physics or closely related discipline, and have a strong track record of research in at least one of the following fields: imaging, time-of-flight ranging, experimental laser physics, quantum optics, nonlinear optics. He/she will be expected to have a track record of research publications that are appropriate for his/her position and experience. The successful candidates will be expected to take a leading role in the running of the project and will be expected to help supervise junior colleagues. The second year will be confirmed upon successful completion of project milestones in year one.
