Epsrc Icase PhD in Physics A Manufacturing Process Simulator for Vcsels

A new PhD position in semiconductors is available at Cardiff University. The funding allows successful candidate to work for 3 years. The deadline for applying is June 30, 2019.

This project will be in collaboration with IQE, the global leader in the design and manufacture of advanced semiconductor wafer products. You will develop a simulation to predict the manufacturing performance and critical tolerances of epitaxial layer material including compositions, doping and layer thicknesses, using quantum mechanical and optical mode solvers, based on device performance and in-situ reactor characterisation and ex-situ characterisation of vertical cavity surface emitting lasers. The scientific challenges include optimising characterisation approaches and data handling as well as producing physical models to connect epitaxial structure and device function to maximise manufacturing tolerances and yield.

Research Training Support Grant (RTSG) are also available. There are other opportunities and benefits available to studentship holders, including an overseas fieldwork allowance (if applicable), internship opportunities, overseas institutional visits and other small grants. You should have obtained, or be about to obtain a First or Upper Second Class UK Honours degree in Physics, or a related subject, Alternatively, applicants with equivalent qualifications gained outside the UK will also be considered. Applicants with a Lower Second Class degree will be considered if they also have a Master's degree. Applicants whose first language is not English are normally expected to meet the minimum University requirements (eg 6.5 IELTS). Normally to be eligible for a full award a student must have no restrictions on how long they can stay in the UK and have been ordinarily resident in the UK for at least 3 years prior to the start of the studentship (with some further constraint regarding residence for education). For further information regarding residence requirements, please see the RCUK regulations. These include further information, for example about refugees, migrant workers, residence for education and EEA nationals. Students from EU countries other than the UK are generally eligible for a fees-only award. To be eligible for a fees-only award, a student must be ordinarily resident in a member state of the EU; in the same way as UK students must be ordinarily resident in the UK.

Consideration is automatic upon application for admission to the Doctor of Philosophy in Physics and Astronomy with an October 2019 start date. In the 'Research proposal and Funding' section of your application, please specify the project title and supervisors of this project and copy the project description in the text box provided (you are able to state multiple advertised projects that you would like to be considered for). Please select 'No, I am not self-funding my research' when asked whether you are self-funding your research. Please add 'EPSRC funded studentship' when asked 'Please provide the name of the funding you are applying for'. Interviews are expected to be held during April or May 2019. We reserve the right to close applications early should sufficient applications be received.
