PhD Stduentship -- Near-field Optics



Important description
Applicants are sought for a three-year PhD studentship in near-field optics in the Department of Physics at the University of Otago. Working with Professor Richard Blaikie and his sub-wavelength optics group the successful candidate will study advanced optical near-field systems, engineered for application in next-generation lithography and sensing. The project is funded by New Zealand’s prestigious Marsden Fund, and the group is well resourced in terms of laboratory equipment and computational modelling tools. Further details about the project can be obtained by contacting Professor Blaikie directly (richard.blaikie@otago.ac.nz).

We are looking for a highly motivated individual with a strong Honours or Masters degree in optical physics or engineering. Previous exposure to optical lithography, thin-film deposition and advanced microscopy techniques (optical, electron-beam and scanning-probe) would be desirable.

The Physics Department of the University of Otago was the first Physics Department in New Zealand. The Chair in Natural Philosophy was established when the University opened in July 1871. Ever since, the Department has embraced innovative teaching methods, promoted a vigorous research ethos, and been committed both to Physics as a discipline and to its applications.

Situated in Dunedin, on New Zealand’s South Island, the University provides a very attractive and stimulating environment for advanced research. With more than 3,500 staff and approximately 20,000 students studying across four academic divisions (Sciences, Health Sciences, Business and Humanities) it is New Zealand’s oldest and most research-intensive University.


The studentship pays NZ$25,000 per annum plus tuition fees. Applications can be made by sending a full academic transcript (including grades and course titles) and the names and contact details of three academic referees to Professor Richard Blaikie (richard.blaikie@otago.ac.nz).
