PhD and post-doctoral opportunities

We have a number of positions both at PhD and postdoctoral levels, to start as soon as possible.

A number of fully-funded industrial PhD studentships are available for EU nationals from leading industrial collaborators inc Microsoft, ADVA, Mitsubishi, Alcatel Submarine Networks, KDDI and others. PhD applicants must have an excellent academic record with a 1st class (or equivalent) degree in electronic and electrical engineering or physics or a related discipline and demonstrate enthusiasm and ability for research work.

We are looking to recruit PhD students and postdoctoral research fellows with aptitude and interest in hands-on experimental work in the areas of high-speed optical fibre transmission systems, digital signal processing and machine learning for optical communications.  

On the experimental research – we are looking for PhD students to help us develop our recirculating optical fibre loop test-bed to support transmission rates above Terabit/s speeds, expand the usable optical fibre bandwidth and investigate digital transceivers to enable network intelligence using DSP and machine learning.
