We are seeking a creative Research Fellow to develop modelling systems which incorporate machine learning to predict Hollow Core fibre optical performance. Recently, there have been significant breakthroughs in Hollow Core Optical fibres performance driven by the work done here at the University of Southampton. The Optoelectronics Research Centre has a long history of impactful innovation, from amplifiers that underpin the physical layer of the internet to many of the specialist fibres that exist today.

The Role

Optical Modelling of Hollow Core Fibre structures with Machine Learning

This project seeks to utilise the power of machine learning with other computational models to develop tools that will allow us to explore the potential of this technology across an increasingly broad parameter space. The new research fellow will join a diverse team and be part of a research family that conducts all elements of work on this technology; from theory, design, through fabrication, characterisation and then applications.

The candidate should hold a PhD or equivalent professional qualifications and experience in physics, or appropriate discipline.

Applications for Research Fellow positions will be considered from candidates who are working towards or nearing completion of a relevant PhD qualification. The title of Research Fellow will be applied upon successful completion of the PhD. Prior to the qualification being awarded the title of Senior Research Assistant will be given.
