Loughborough University is a top-ten rated university in England for research intensity (REF, 2014) and an outstanding 66% of the work of Loughborough’s academic staff who were eligible to be submitted to the REF was judged as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’, compared to a national average figure of 43%.

In choosing Loughborough for your research, you’ll work alongside academics who are leaders in their field. You will benefit from comprehensive support and guidance from our Doctoral College, including tailored careers advice, to help you succeed in your research and future career.


The Department oMechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering of Loughborough University, UK, is seeking to appoint ONE PhD student. The chance to work with world-leading experts and industrial collaborators and take part in an EPSRC funded research project that will develop the next generation of telecommunications antennas and RF devices for 5G and space. This project will be multidisciplinary in nature and will be primarily based on antennas. The aim to is to use new RF materials such as 3D printed dielectrics or ceramics. This facilitates extra degrees of freedom in terms of the 3D spatial variation of the relative permittivity; minimisation of losses; and potential introduction of magnetic materials. An aspect of the project will be to measure the dielectric properties of these materials. These new materials will facilitate new designs of antennas and antenna arrays that will be used for 5G and space applications. Designs will incorporate reconfigurability and potentially signal processing. The ideal candidate will have antennas experience and strong grounding in analytical theory.

Positions: PhD Student on Radiofrequency Materials for 5G and Space Antennas and Antenna Arrays

Location: Department of Mechanical, Electrical and Manufacturing Engineering, Loughborough, UK

Work Time: Full time

Duration: 3 years

Start date 1 October 2021

Application deadline: 19 February 2021

8 open PhD and postdoc positions in Nano and Quantum Optics in Jena, Germany

The laboratory for Nano & Quantum Optics of the Abbe Center of Photonics has a number of open positions for PhD candidates and postdoctoral researchers, which provide ideal career opportunities for suitable candidates within the graduate school of the Abbe School of Photonics (
  • PhD: Controlling light emission by dielectric nanoantennas
  • PhD: Machine learning-based design of metamaterials & Metamaterial-based machine learning systems
  • PhD: Strong coupling to quantum emitters by plasmonic superfocusing
  • PhD: Spatiotemporal dynamics of nano-scale light-matter interactions in metasurfaces & atomic membranes
  • PhD/Postdoc: Nanoscale integrated quantum photonics
  • PhD/Postdoc: Quantum imaging and sensing
  • PhD/Postdoc: Quantum communication and single photon sources
  • Postdoc: Quantum photonics
The laboratory for Nano & Quantum Optics is part of the Max Planck School of Photonics ( Therefore, exceptional PhD applicants might also be offered to enter the Max Planck School's elite program, providing truly superior support to future academic careers.
The lab's research targets the control of light at the single photon level and at the nanoscale using nanostructured materials and ultrafast nonlinear optical effects. The lab, which is a part of the Institute of Applied Physics and the Institute of Solid State Physics at the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena (Germany), covers a broad range of research fields in experiment, technology, and theory to study interaction of light with microstructured and nanostructured matter, employing advanced methods for nanofabrication, experimental characterization, and numerical modelling.
We are constantly looking for talented young scientists, who would like to contribute to cutting edge research projects on quantum photonics at the nano scale. Currently there are openings for PhD projects and postdoctoral projects on the above topics, but other topics motivated by the interest of potential candidates can be discussed as well. 
The offered full-time positions are initially limited to 3 or 2 years (PhD/Posdoc), an extension is possible.
