PhD Studentships

Four PhD Studentships are available on the research and development of the epitaxy of semiconductor materials and devices
There are four funded PhD studentships available based at the Facility’s headquarters at the University of Sheffield. The studentships will be based on the research and development in the growth of compound semiconductor materials and devices, gaining expertise in Molecular Beam or Metal-Organic Vapour Phase Epitaxy, and various device characterization techniques. The studentships will be best suited to candidates with a keen interest in semiconductor materials, devices and characterization techniques, and a solid background in semiconductor physics or engineering. To find out more details and apply, please view our FindAPhD listing. 

EPSRC Industrial CASE PhD Studentship
An Industrial CASE award is available for a PhD studentship in the Epitaxial Growth and Characterisation of Novel Materials for Long-Wavelength semiconductor lasers & detectors. The studentship is co-funded by the EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council) and IQE plc, the global industrial leader in epitaxy, who are providing additional support of £35,000 over the course of the studentship. The studentship represents an exciting opportunity to make breakthroughs in many technological areas including fibre-optic telecommunications, reducing data centre energy consumption and sensing applications such as LIDAR for autonomous vehicles. For more details and information on how to apply, please visit the FindAPhD website.
