Come along to our informal event to get to know the PIADS team, find out about PhD / EngD opportunities available for 2021 & get tips on how to apply!    


The PIADS Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) is a partnership between Queens University Belfast (QUB), the University of Glasgow (UoG) and the Irish Photonic Integration Centre (IPIC). We provide opportunities for applicants to research novel scientific and engineering developments in highly manufacturable photonic integration technologies with far-reaching applications related to the storage of digital information, telecommunications, biophotonics, healthcare and beyond. There are two routes to join us!

1. Joining via our UK Route!

THE PROGRAMME

  • Our PhD and EngD programmes lead to unique jointly awarded research degrees from both QUB and UoG. 
  • 4-year studentships cover tuition fees and an annual maintenance stipend of £15,285 p.a. (+£5k tax free p.a for EngD students). 
  • In year one, students spend time at both universities, completing a range of scientific and technical courses whilst engaging in exploratory research projects, before choosing and embarking on their research project. 
  • Students manage their own (up to £27,000) research and training budget for costs such as start-up equipment, facility access, research consumables, travel and conference participation.
WORKING WITH INDUSTRY

  • PhD students complete their studies in the university setting whilst EngD candidates complete their research onsite with the industrial partner – both benefit from academic and industrial supervision and mentorship.
  • Every PIADS student benefits from ongoing opportunities to engage with our industrial partners through conferences, seminars, site visits, internships. 
  • Exclusive access to the tailored “Teamwork and Collaboration Skills in a Cross-Geographical Environment” programme delivered by Seagate Technology - part of their Global Leadership programme.
