PhD/PDRA Positions

Positions available in the Nanophotonics group.

We have a range of positions available for 2016 and 2017 and suggest you contact us immediately if interested.

PhD positions: 2016 and 2017
A wide range of PhD projects are offered across the research topics of the group. A good place at the areas is to look at recent publications on our webpages. New projects start all the time.
For immediate interest is a theory project on DFT of molecules
see here
Please contact us ASAP if potentially interested.

PDRA positions: 2016
Roll-to-roll photonics and plasmonics (see
Optics and control of few molecules in plasmonics (chemistry and physics positions available)
Soft Nanophotonics: Optics of gyroidal metamaterials and structural colour in plants
Please contact us ASAP if these are of interest.

Felix Benz wins Abdus Salam prize

Nov 29, 2016

NanoPhotonics researcher Felix Benz has been awarded the prestigious Abdus Salam prize. His work utilizes the strange properties of tiny particles of gold; light is concentrated down smaller than a single atom enabling a look at individual chemical bonds inside molecules, opening up new ways to study light and matter.
