PhD Research Opportunity in Silicon Photonics - Application Deadline May 31st

Sorry for the short notice, but this is a joint Intel / CERN opportunity for silicon photonics research. Please pass this on to anyone that you think could benefit from this opportunity. More details are in the enclosed flyer but here is the general overview:


If you're an enthusiastic and talented student or young professional thinking of a doctorate, you
can make a difference. If successful, you will be offered a CERN Fellowship contract with a
maximum duration of 3 years.

As a highly motivated individual, keen to benefit from a unique PhD programme, you will
investigate the use of silicon photonics technology in data transfer systems for future generations
of high-energy particle physics detector systems. The project will initially take you from CERN in
Geneva to Dublin City University, Ireland, to gain a basic understanding of optical data
communications systems as part of formal PhD training. You will then spend time at the Intel Labs
in California where you will work with world-leading researchers in the field of silicon photonics to
understand the basics of the manipulation of light in silicon and lay out your first optical circuits.
Returning to CERN you will investigate the effect of exposing silicon photonic circuits to the
challenging environment of a particle physics experiment. Using the results of your tests at CERN
you will go back to Intel to refine the designs in the light of your findings before returning for the
final verification testing at CERN. You will be registered at Dublin City University, with fees covered
for the first three years, where your academic supervisor will oversee the academic aspects of
your work necessary for you to obtain your PhD degree.
