PhD Studentship Rapid Materials Discovery Parallel Synthesis of Mixed Anion Layered Compounds

International students are invited for a PhD scholarship in inorganic chemistry at University of Southampton. Successful candidate will have funding to work and study for 4 years in UK. The deadline for applying is August 31, 2019.

A fully-funded 4 year PhD studentship in materials chemistry at the University of Southampton is available. The project will pioneer a novel parallel synthesis approach to discovery of functional materials. In addition to carrying out PhD research you will be closely involved in undergraduate teaching (20% time commitment in years 1-3), and will be supported by mentoring to achieve Associate Fellowship of the Higher Education Academy.

The available project concerns the synthesis of mixed anion materials - those that contain both oxygen and a second, heavier non-metal such as sulphur or phosphorus - which have shown significant functionality, such as superconductivity and transparent conductivity but remain an underexplored area of chemistry. These materials often have challenging synthetic routes, which limits new materials development. We propose to breakthrough this barrier with an innovative parallel synthesis approach which will allow us to greatly diversify the known classes of mixed anion material, and identify new functional types. You will help to develop this new methodology and will also have opportunities to develop expertise in a range of materials characterisation techniques including use of our excellent in-house diffraction, microscopy and spectroscopy facilities and experiments at central facilities such as the Diamond synchrotron.

As part of the funding associated with this PhD you will participate in undergraduate teaching in inorganic chemistry. In year 1 this will involve teaching lab activities and support teaching with a member of staff (e.g. workshops), but in years 2 and 3 after some experience there will be opportunities to host tutorials or undertake other more responsible roles.

Informal enquiries may be directed to Dr Geoffrey Hyett (G.Hyett@soton.ac.uk). The project is funded for 4 years and welcomes applicants from the UK who have or expect to obtain at least an upper second class degree in Chemistry or another relevant discipline. Funding will cover fees and a stipend at current research council rates of 15,009 per annum.

PhD Scholarship Opportunity Sparc Hub at Monash University

Outstanding international students are invited to apply for a PhD scholarship at Monash University. Applications should be sent before June 21, 2019.

Job No.:593695

Location: Clayton campus

Employment type: Full-time

Duration:3 year fixed-term appointment with possible 6 month extension

Remuneration:Stipend can range from $27,872 to $32,000 per annum (tax free)

The ARC Smart Pavements Hub (SPARC) invites applications for a PhD-position in evaluating thermal responses of car-park pavement energy systems.

SPARC Hub, which is a partnership between Monash and 7 other Australian Universities and 20+ Industry Partners, is embarking on a range of exciting research projects, offering an unprecedented opportunity for recent graduates to establish their postgraduate career in various engineering fields. The Hub offers a coherent PhD and Masters by research program for high achieving passionate students and is committed to create an intellectually exhilarating and vibrant environment towards excellence.

Pavement energy systems offer a low-cost environmental friendly method of providing useful thermal energy to nearby buildings. These pavements can be used as a heat source/sink to assist in heating/cooling of built structures or energy use in infrastructures (lightning, etc.) via the use of a ground source heat pump. Heat transfer fluids such as water flow in pipes installed within the pavement without any significant modifications to its initial design. The additional temperature changes of the pavement resulting from the operation of the heat pump may lead to thermal changes in the pavement which may not be accounted for in the initial design. Accordingly, a thorough evaluation of thermal responses of the pavement under various operational conditions and recommendations for practice is required.

This project aims to establish baseline knowledge on the effects of key parameters of pavement energy systems on their thermal performances, which can later be used as a guide to develop field-scale installations. Targeted experimental studies and numerical simulations will be undertaken to evaluate the long-term thermal response of pavement systems under relevant parameters encountered in the field (i.e. mechanical loads imposed by cars on the pavement, variations in solar radiation, ground and atmospheric temperatures in Melbourne, soil moisture and strength variations, and different water temperatures flowing in the pipes arising from seasonal changes).

PhD Analogue Radio-over-fibre-fed Antennas for Massive Deployment

Eindhoven University of Technology is pleased to invite applicants to apply for a new opening PhD position in wireless communication. The funds for this position are available for 4 years. This position is open until filled.

Are you looking for high quality doctoral-level training in and outside academia?

Our society is on the brink of a new age with the development of new visionary concepts such as internet of things, smart cities, autonomous driving and smart industries. This stimulates the use of the mm-wave frequencies up to 100 GHz to support much higher data rates and to increase the capacity of mobile wireless communication systems to enable future beyond-5G infrastructure. This requires new system concepts such as Distributed Massive Multiple-Input-Multiple-Output (DM-MIMO) in which instead of a single base-station, the cell is covered by multiple remote antenna stations, all connected to a central unit. To overcome existing limitations, such as poor power efficiency and poor signal quality, MyWave will focus on an innovative antenna system concept utilizing both silicon and III-V semiconductor technologies, advanced signal processing concepts and radio-over-fibre interconnect between a central unit and the remote antenna stations.

MyWave establishes a unique and well-structured training network with leading R&D labs from European industries, universities and technology institutes in the domain of wireless infrastructure and a proven track-record in joint collaborations. The 15 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) will form a research team that is embedded in leading industrial and academic R&D labs. This will bridge the gap between the various disciplines by uniting their research efforts to solve the challenges.

From the 15 individual PhD projects are 5 positions hosted by the TU/e. They are advertised separately on the TU/e website. MyWave will provide the PhD students with a comprehensive set of theoretical and practical skills relevant for innovation and long-term employability in a rapidly growing sector. This highly innovative training will cover several inter-disciplinary areas. Each PhD student will be enrolled in a doctoral programme and is jointly supervised by supervisors from the academic and industry sector. Each PhD student will do a secondment of 18 months abroad at one of the industrial partners (TU/e, CHALMERS, KIT, Fraunhofer, ERICSSON, NXP, KEYSIGHT, United Mondilithic Semiconductors (UMS), GAPWAVES, IMST).

PhD Position ‘Analogue Radio-over-Fibre-fed antennas for massive deployment’ (secondments; GAPWAVES / IMST)

For implementing DM-MIMO, a large amount of antennas at different locations is required. In order to allow for a cost-efficient implementation, these antenna systems as well as their front-haul connection must be low-cost and highly robust. This project aims at developing such antenna systems by employing analogue radio-over-fibre (ARoF). Using this approach, the hardware complexity is concentrated in the central processing unit, resulting in a low-complexity antenna front-end design. The challenge in this project lies in the dense co-integration of photonic and electronic ICs into the antenna structure. For the electronics, the amplifiers developed in the project will be used. For the photonic ICs (PICs), the use of commercial off-the-shelf components is anticipated. If required, TUE's own InP PIC process is available to design and fabricate required components. Applicants should have, or expect to receive, a Master of Science degree or equivalent in a relevant electrical engineering or applied physics discipline and should not have more than four years of research experience. In addition to the formal ESR qualifications, selection is also based on the performance of the candidates in other works (e.g. thesis and advanced level courses), as well as through interviews and assignments. Besides good subject knowledge, emphasis will be on creative thinking, motivation, ability to cooperate, initiative to work independently and personal suitability for research training. Previous experience in the area of antennas, electronics and signal processing as well as proficiency in using scientific and engineering software packages such as Matlab, ADS, etc. are advantageous. For the PhD positions the EU 'Mobility rules' apply. This means that candidate students cannot have resided for more than 12 months during the period of 3 years immediately before the start of the PhD, in the prospective host country (Example: a candidate student who has stayed in The Netherlands for more than 12 months in the last 3 years cannot be hired by the university in The Netherlands).

We offer a challenging job at a dynamic and ambitious university through a fixed-term appointment for a period of 4 years. The research in this project must be concluded with the attainment of a Ph.D. degree. As an employee of the university you will receive a competitive salary as well as excellent employment conditions. A salary is offered starting at 2325,- per month (gross) in the first year, increasing up to 2972,- per month (gross) in the last year. Moreover, an 8% bonus share (holiday supplement) is provided annually. Assistance for finding accommodation can be given. The university offers an attractive package of fringe benefits such as excellent technical infrastructure, child care, savings schemes, and excellent sports facilities.

TU/e also offers you the opportunity for personal development by developing your social and communication skills. We do this by offering every PhD student a series of courses that are part of the PROOFprogramas an excellent addition to your scientific education.
