The Wrocław Doctoral School of Institutes of Polish Academy of Sciences (WDS IPAS) announces special recruitment for a Ph.D. student scholarship in IV edition of the program "Implementation doctorate I" – Theme 1: "Synthesis and study of spectroscopic properties of amorphous materials doped with selected rare-earth ions", funded by Ministry of Science and Higher Education in Poland (Project ID 485802 in OSF system, Reg. no. DWD/4/40/2020), and carried out under the supervision of Prof. Przemysław Dereń in the Division of Optical Spectroscopy of ILT&SR PAS in cooperation with the company Nanores Sp. z o. o. Sp. k. in Wrocław.

 

  1. Description of Theme 1:

In a flourishing and demanding field of optical research and engineering, amorphous materials are a promising class of photonic-grade structures. The main task of the Ph.D. student is to synthesize and study the optical properties of new amorphous materials doped with rare-earth ions, and then using them to try to obtain a transparent ceramic applying the unique method of the synthesis of these materials developed at ILT&SR PAS. It is planned to conduct application studies that will allow the use of new materials as optical temperature sensors and as phosphors for lighting in LED technology.

  1. Additional information

The Ph.D. student program is performed based on the Communication of 29.05.2019 of MNiSW on the establishment of the "Implementation Doctorate" program (Communication of MNiSW) that grants the Ph.D. fellowship, defined in the Act of 20 July 2018 – Law on higher education and science (Dz. U. no. 1668 as amended) in article 209 paragraph 1, as below.

The total Ph.D. fellowship per month will be provided:

  1. 3450,00 PLN (gross) – till the month of the mid-term evaluation (planned at the end of II academic year);
  2. 4450,00 PLN (gross) – starting from the next month after the mid-term evaluation (during III and IV academic years).

In addition, the Ph.D. student has granted financial support for His/Her use of the research infrastructure at ILT&SR PAS, amounting to about 25 000 PLN per each academic year
