Seagate Technology are a global leader in data storage. Over the last eight years they have sponsored research at Queen's University Belfast in the area of advanced materials for data storage and with a particular interest in the challenges of heat assisted magnetic recording. This successful programme led to the foundation of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Photonic Integration & Advanced Data Storage in partnership with University of Glasgow. More recently a Royal Academy of Engineering Research Chair was awarded to its Principal Investigator (PI) and this Research post is to support the PI in delivering an enhanced programme of plasmonic materials development in partnership (valued at GBP 1.4M) with Seagate Technology. During the post the successful applicant will be expected to work closely with Seagate Technology R&D staff and other PhDs and PDRAs. The Centre for Nanostructured Media has state of the art laboratories for materials synthesis (UHV sputtering & PLD), metrology (electric, magnetic and optical/photonic) and characterisations (SEM, XRD, multi-mode AFM, FIB and HRTEM).
