We are seeking a highly capable and motivated graduate for this exciting opportunity to undertake a Research Masters. This is a collaborative project between Bangor University and leading photonics company Qioptiq Ltd.

This project aims at developing next-generation filters based on metamaterial design and technology, i.e. artificially engineered material with unique properties not found in nature materials. The project will focus on the development of edge and bandpass filters which are building elements of many optical products and systems, whose main function is to limit stray light found in optical systems, especially in underwater environments.

This Research Masters project is expected to start in January 2021 immediately after the interview and will take one year to complete. The KESS 2 scholar will be based in the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering (CSEE) and will be supervised by academic supervisors Dr James Wang and Dr Liyang Yue, and the industrial supervisor Dr. James Monks of Qioptiq. The applicant should hold a good degree (at least 2:2) in engineering, physics, optics, materials or a related scientific discipline, have demonstrably excellent research skills, and relevant experience.

For more information, or informal enquiries, please email Dr James Wang :
