We are currently advertising two PhD studentships:

PhD Studentship 1: Quantum Communication beyond Qubits

High-dimensional entanglement in the temporal and spatial photonic degrees of freedom will be used to surpass the distance and noise limitations of state-of-the-art quantum communication systems.

PhD Studentship 2: Quantum Information Processing with Complex Scattering Media

Control over the scattering process inside multi-mode fibers will be used for designing quantum logic gates and multi-port beam splitters for generating and manipulating high-dimensional quantum states of light


These studentships are open to UK/EU applicants that satisfy the EPSRC residency requirements, as well as extremely competitive international candidates.

Please click the above links for detailed information on the studentships. All applications must be received by 8th February, 2019. All successful candidates must commence studies preferably by 1st October, 2019.

Applications can be made through the Heriot-Watt University online application system. Please note that you will be asked to upload an academic CV, official transcript, and nominate one referee. Additional references can be sent directly to m.malik [at]
