Scholarship Description: The Quantum Spin Dynamics research group studies experimental quantum coherent phenomena of spins in molecular and solid state systems and in devices, with a focus on quantum information science. Systems under investigation include donors in silicon as well as custom-designed molecules which exhibit particular spin interactions. Specific research interests include: the transfer of coherent states between different degrees of freedom; understanding and mitigating spin decoherence mechanisms; the interaction of nuclear spins with transient electron spins; and robust methods for generating spin entanglement. Through this research the group explores the potential of spins for quantum technologies (including quantum sensors, simulators and computers). We are looking for two PhD students to join the group and undertake a project in one of the areas currently under investigation. Successful candidates will be able to discuss potential projects which fall within the group’s activities.
Duration of award(s): Stipend is offered for 3.5 years.
What does it Covers: £15,590 per annum
How to Apply: Applications are to be submitted by email.
Scholarship Application Deadline: 31 Jan 2013
