This Research Associate position arises through the award £28m from the UKRI’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to allow the Quantum Imaging Hub (Quantic) to continue its research, over the next five years. QuantIC brings together the Universities of Glasgow, Bristol, Edinburgh, Heriot-Watt and Strathclyde and will also include Exeter, Imperial College London and Southampton in the next phase of activities alongside industrial partners from across the UK.
Across the consortium, the hub’s major research successes to date include the development of QuantiCAM, a digital camera which captures photons 10,000 times faster than conventional cameras, and cameras capable of novel imaging feats including looking around corners and seeing clearly through smoke. Wee-g, a portable gravity imager capable of measuring ‘earth tides’ subtle changes in the earth around us has also attracted significant industrial interest for use in space, civil engineering and environmental monitoring.
The candidate should have a good undergraduate degree and a PhD in Physics, Computer Science, Electronic Engineering or a closely related area. Relevant practical experience of working in the electronics industry is also desirable.
This role is full time and fixed-term until 30 November 2022.
Salary: £33,797 - £40,322 per annum
