The group of Professor Simon Fleming, within the Institute of Photonics and Optical Sciences and Sydney Nano Institute at the University of Sydney, Australia, is looking for prospective PhD students to conduct basic and applied research in photonics and biomedical applications of fibres.
The Institute of Photonics and Optical Sciences opens the door to your scientific career: our PhD students are at the frontier of photonics research and have an outstanding publication record. We have state-of-the-art facilities for micro and nanofabrication and specialty fibre fabrication.
We invite candidates with backgrounds in physics, mathematics, computer science, material science and engineering. Candidates who have both a strong quantitative background and previous experience with optical experiments are especially encouraged to apply.
Key research areas include: fibre optics, biophotonics, tuneable metamaterials, optomechanics, poling, fibre-based sensors and biomedical devices, nano- and microstructured soft polymers.
Project opportunities with Professor Simon Fleming include:
Other original research projects aligned to the Research Strength Areas of the Institute of Photonics and Optical Sciences are also available.
Successful candidates will typically have ranked at or near the top of their classes, have already engaged in research and published their results, and be highly proficient in written and spoken English.
