Applications are invited for a post-graduate position in Sensing, aiming to research the use of special optical fibres for small concentrations of bio-samples. Using photonic crystal fibres and other special fibre types in innovative ways will allow the interaction between the optical field and samples to be increased substantially, enabling sensors with higher sensitivity to be developed for clinical use. Applications for a post-graduate post are invited from first- or upper second-class honours graduates of physics, electronic engineering, biomedical engineering, who have a strong interest in interdisciplinary research. Training opportunities will be provided to acquire appropriate cross-disciplinary skills.

The successful applicants will join an established team of researchers investigating the properties of light propagating through optical fibres at the Photonic Systems Group. For further details, please contact Dr Fatima Gunning at Applications should be sent to this address, including letter of interest and CV

Starting date: no later than 5th February 2006.

Closing date:    Friday,1st December 2006.
