There are regularly-opened competitive fellowship schemes. These include:
- The Royal Commission 1851 Fellowship (the annual deadline is normally around mid February)
- Royal Society Newton International Fellowship (the annual deadline is normally around March)
- JSPS postdoctoral fellowships for research abroad
Also, UCL regularly offer postdoctoral fellowships for PhD graduates who are (or were) funded by EPSRC studentships. Hide Kurebayashi is happy to discuss any possibilities that bring you in London for exciting research.
There are a number PhD studentships that we can apply for. Here is the summary of PhD studentships offered from UCL. The group will occasionally have PhD studentships funded by research grants. In addition to these, the following CDT programmes might act as a mechanism to join our team:
Other PhD scholarships, e.g. for overseas students funded by own country, might be available and Hide Kurebayashi is happy to discuss any possibilities.
Undergraduate Summer Projects
We are always looking for new students to join our research group. We offer hands-on experience in optical and microwave techniques, as well as sample design and fabrication. Students with a background in physics, materials science, or electrical engineering would normally suit to our group but not exclusively.
Within UCL, we offer 3rd and 4th year projects through the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering. Please see the departmental project listing for details.
All undergraduate students interested in a career in science or engineering are advised to do at least one Summer research experience. We offer one or two Summer internships per year through the generous support of the Ogden Trust and are happy to host enthusiastic students of all levels through other schemes or work placements.
"My 6 weeks at LCN were fantastic! Interning with Dr Hidekazu Kurebayashi has been incredibly rewarding and insightful" - Rejwan Salih, Ogden Summer Intern, 2016
"In the lab, I was exposed to post graduate level Physics, something that I was greatly honoured to experience because I knew within the first day how rare it is for a 17 year old to get an opportunity like this. ... This was an invaluable experience that if presented to me again would take up in a heartbeat." - Rajan Mahoon, A-level Work Experience Student, 2016
