SU2P is a collaborative programme between the universities of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Heriot Watt, St Andrews, Strathclyde in Scotland and Stanford University in the USA.
Closing Date August 31, 2016
Would you like to pursue research in an industrial environment? Applications are being sought for the SU2P Industrial Fellowships 2016
The SU2P Industrial Fellowship scheme is to enable early career researchers to pursue their research idea with one of the SU2P industrial affiliates. The scheme is open to anyone with a PhD or MSc with up to 4 years relevant experience in physics or electrical engineering or equivalent qualification subject to normal visa and work permit regulations. The proposed research project will be either initiated by the applicant or the sponsoring company but in each case will be developed in conjunction with the sponsoring company.
The company will offer the successful candidates employment for one year in the first instance in order to pursue the project. Any intellectual property generated as a result of the project will be owned by the company. The participating universities will facilitate the development of the proposal and the successful candidates will be offered mentoring by the universities. The successful applicants will be offered the opportunity to apply for an SU2P Staff Exchange to enable short-term visits to our partners.
How to Apply
If you would like to apply for an SU2P Industrial Fellowship make contact with the company to request a detailed job description. The sponsoring company together with the relevant contact is shown below.
Your application should consist of a CV and cover letter. Applications should be sent to Carol Scullion, Director SU2P, Institute of Photonics, Technology & Innovation Centre, University of Strathclyde, Glasgow G1 1XQ. More information on SU2P can be found at www.su2p.com. Contact Carol directly (firstname.lastname@example.org ) if you would like to discuss the SU2P Industrial fellowship scheme.
The closing date for applications for 2016 is August 31 2016. The outcome should be known by September 30 2016 and the projects are expected to commence in October/November 2016.

Kaiam Europe have the following project requirement and look forward to receiving general enquiries or applications from suitably qualified individuals.
Headquartered in Newark, California, with large scale manufacturing in Livingston, Scotland, and Research and Development activities spanning both sites, Kaiam Corporation is a private company commercializing photonic integrated circuits. Kaiam is an emerging market leader in the research, development and manufacturing of optoelectronic equipment used within data-communication centers.
The proposed research project has been initiated by the sponsoring company to provide research and development support to new and ongoing commercial R&D projects at the company’s Livingston site, where it develops high impact, disruptive next generation optoelectronic hardware solutions for data centres. Although initiated by the sponsoring company, the focus of the project may be customised in the longer term in conjunction with the successful candidate to enable the researcher to learn new skills, knowledge and experience.
The applicant should have in strong background in opto-electronics and the ability to work with other team members to set up, troubleshoot and verify standard and non-standard measurements. A key part of the project is the DC and RF optical and electrical characterisation of semiconductor opto-electrical components, therefore a strong ability to analyse and troubleshoot R&D test/characterisation data/measurements on devices such as lasers, LEDs, modulators, detectors and waveguides is required. The application would ideally have III-V semiconductor device experience, but applicants with other opto-electronics backgrounds would be considered.
