PhD vacancy in Optical Communication at Heriot-Watt University, Scotland

Heriot-Watt University
PhD vacancies in Optical Communication and Photonic Network Group
School of Engineering and Physical Sciences

Applications are invited for full-time, 3-year PhD research in the
School of Engineering and Physical Sciences at Heriot-Watt University,
Edinburgh, UK ( The studentship will cover tuition fees
and stipend.

The research is in optical communication and photonic network area. We
are working on optical code based techniques, advanced modulation
techniques, high speed opticaln communication system, optical access
network, nonlinear optics in optical communication system, optical
signal processing, and etc. More information could be found at The candidates are expected to
theoretically/experimentally work on optical code related techniques
and their applications for optical communication systems. We have
collaborations with many leading research groups worldwide in these
fields. The students will have chance to carry out their experimental
researches using cutting-edge technologies in worldrenown research labs.

Applicants should have a strong background in
photonics/optoelectronics/optical communication system. Previous
experimental research experiences are preferable.

The students are expected to start as soon as possible.

For application and further details, please contact Dr. Xu Wang by
