The Institute of Photonics and Optical Sciences at the University of Sydney opens the door to your scientific career: our PhD students are at the frontier of photonics research and have an outstanding publication record.

We invite candidates with backgrounds in physics, mathematics, computer science, material science and engineering. Candidates who have both a strong quantitative background and previous experience with optical experiments are especially encouraged to apply.

Key research areas include: fibre optics, biophotonics, tuneable metamaterials, optomechanics, poling, fibre-based sensors and biomedical devices, nano- and microstructured soft polymers.

Project opportunities with Professor Simon Fleming include:

  • novel biophotonic devices https://sydney.edu.au/research/opportunities/opportunities/2463
  • metamaterial hyperlenses for THz sub-diffraction imaging https://sydney.edu.au/research/opportunities/opportunities/2466
  • novel THz waveguides
    https://sydney.edu.au/research/opportunities/opportunities/2467
  • poling multilayer dielectric structures for compact active optical devices
    https://sydney.edu.au/research/opportunities/opportunities/2468
  • mesoscopic tapers and actuators

‚ÄčOther original research projects aligned to the Research Strength Areas of the Institute of Photonics and Optical Sciences are also available.

Successful candidates will typically have ranked at or near the top of their classes, have already engaged in research and published their results, and be highly proficient in written and spoken English.
