Marie Curie Researchers at the Cardiff School of Engineering

Reference: 10856BR 

Two positions as Marie Curie Early Stage Researchers/PhDs on the fabrication of quantum emitters in Cardiff University.

Applicants are invited for two Early Stage Researcher (ESR) positions in the LasIonDef project (Laser Fabrication and Ion Implantation of Defects as Quantum Emitters) at Cardiff’s School of Engineering.

Funding: European Commission’s Marie-Skłodowska-Curie Actions Innovative Training Network (ITN).

The positions will lead to the award of a PhD.

Research Areas: The researchers will undertake research on fabrication and characterisation of novel quantum emitters in materials such as diamond, gallium nitride and boron nitride. They will be trained in device fabrication, photonics and quantum technologies, strengthening their future career options. As part of an Innovative Training Network you will work with a cohort of 13 ESRs across Italy, Germany, France and Poland in both academia and industry regularly attending project meetings, training activities and carrying out extended secondments at these institutions.


  • Degree in Physics, Electrical Engineering or Materials Science is required. The applicants must also meet the eligibility requirements for Marie-Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme laid out below.
  • This post is full time (35 hours a week), available immediately with a fixed term of 36 months.

Fellowships: £37,380 per annum, plus family allowance if eligible

Job ref: 10856BR

The Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) will carry out the following tasks throughout the project:

ESR1 will fabricate and characterise colour centres in wide bandgap semiconductors. They will investigate novel methods to create and control these emitters using lasers, epitaxy and ion implantation.

ESR2 will design, fabricate and test nanostructures that enhance the properties of emitters in wide-bandgap semiconductors, including cavities and electronic devices.

Essential Criteria

Must meet the eligibility criteria of the Marie-Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme laid out below in the Additional information section*.

1. Degree in physics, electrical engineering or materials science.

  1. Evidence of knowledge of semiconductors, solid state physics, optics or quantum physics.
  2. Demonstrated commitment to high quality scholarship.
  3. Proof of good technical writing ability in English.
  4. Proven excellent interpersonal and oral communication skills.
  5. A proven enthusiastic, self-motivated individual, willing to take part in personal skills training, international travel and public outreach activities.
  6. Proven ability to work without close supervision.
  7. Proven ability for original thought and a strong work ethic.
