PhD Studentship: Resistive Switching in Oxides
Supervisor: Prof Judith Driscoll https://driscoll.msm.cam.ac.uk/
Sponsor: ERC Advanced Grant, EROS: https://cordis.europa.eu/project/id/882929
Start date: 1st October 2021
Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 3.5 years
The amount of digital information produced globally is exploding. 90% of the world's data that existed in 2016 had been created in the previous two years alone. Oxide switching materials have promise for non-volatile memory and neuromorphic computing, and could change the technology landscape in artificial intelligence, security, IoT and beyond.
The goal of this ERC Advanced Grant project, EROS, is to undertake research in the area of practical and reliable oxide thin film materials, which display resistive switching effects. The successful applicant should be highly self-motivated, ambitious and show initiative, they will be expected to do experimental research in a team environment working with researchers across departments on device fabrication and characterisation. They should be able to analyse and interpret the results of own research and generate original ideas based on outcomes, design and conduce a coherent set of experiments and record their outcome. They will work under the supervision of Prof Driscoll, and will collaborate with a junior lecturer, postdocs, students, and with two groups in the USA.
A background in Materials Science, Physics, Electrical Engineering, or closely related disciplines is required. The student selected for this project will be trained on thin film growth techniques, and a wide range of materials and electrical characterization tools, join a growing interdisciplinary group. Applicants should have (or expect to be awarded) a first-class or an upper second UK honours degree at the level of MSci, MEng (or overseas equivalent) and should be eligible for 'home rate' fees.
The on-line application system is available at https://www.graduate.study.cam.ac.uk/ . Further information on the application process is available from Dr Rosie Ward (email@example.com ).
