(22) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Research Fellow in experimental quantum and optical technology

Project 1: Superresolution imaging via linear optics in the far-field regime
 
Rayleigh’s criterion defines the minimum resolvable distance between two incoherent point sources as the diffraction-limited spot size. Enhancing the resolution beyond this limit has been a crucial outstanding problem for many years. A number of solutions have been realized; however, all of them so far relied either on near-field or nonlinear-optical probing, which makes them invasive, expensive and not universally applicable. It would therefore be desirable to find an imaging technique that is both linear-optical and operational in the far-field regime. A recent theoretical breakthrough demonstrated that “Rayleigh’s curse” can be resolved by coherent detection the image in certain transverse electromagnetic modes, rather than implementing the traditional imaging procedure, which consists in measuring the incoherent intensity distribution over the image plane. To date, there exist proof-of-principle experimental results demonstrating the plausibility of this approach. The objective of the project is to test this approach in a variety of settings that are relevant for practical application, evaluate its advantages and limitations. If successful, it will result in a revolutionary imaging technology with a potential to change the faces of all fields of science and technology that involve optical imaging, including astronomy, biology, medicine and nanotechnology, as well as optomechanical industry.
 
Project 2: Optical neural networks
 
Machine learning has made enormous progress during recent years, entering almost all spheres of technology, economy and our everyday life. Machines perform comparably to, or even surpass humans in playing board and computer games, driving cars, recognizing images, reading and comprehension. It is probably fair to say that a modern machine will perform better than a human in any environment it has complete knowledge of. These developments however impose growing demand on our computing capabilities, including both the size of neural networks and the processing rate. This is particularly concerning in view of the decline of Moore’s law.
 
The project is to implement artificial neural networks using optics rather than electronics. The training of neural network consists of linear operations (matrix multiplication) combined with nonlinear activation functions applied to individual units. Both these operations can be implemented optically using lenses, spatial light modulators and nonlinear optical techniques such as saturable absorption. However, one crucial element of the training procedure – so-called backpropagation – has so far remained elusive. Our group has developed an idea to overcome this obstacle and implement pure optical backpropagation in a neural network, thereby enabling the training that is practically electronics-free. We confirmed the viability of this approach by simulation. Our next goal  is to set up an experiment and test the method in a practical setting.

(24) Postdoctoral Fellowship Position

Postdoc Fellowship Position summary/title: Postdoctoral Research Associate in Evolutionary Epigenetics

We are seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Associate to join the lab of Prof Peter Sarkies to study the contribution that epigenetic changes (“epimutations”) could make to evolutionary processes.  The lab has previously shown that epimutations, mediated by changes in small RNAs (Beltran et al., Nature Ecology and Evolution, 2020) and chromatin accessibility (Wilson et al., in preparation) arise in populations of the nematode worm C. elegans and contribute to divergence in gene expression.  However, the epimutations have limited stability, typically lasting for 2-4 generations on average.  A key question remaining however is how epimutations respond to the environment.  In this project, the successful candidate will investigate whether genotoxic stress affects the rate, spectrum and stability of epimutations.  The model system C. elegans will be used to generate multiple independent populations, and epimutations will be followed using a variety of high-throughput sequencing based methods.  By comparing epimutations between populations exposed to genotoxic stresses and control populations, we will be able to investigate whether epimutations respond to environmental pressures, thereby investigating the potential consequences for evolutionary processes.

This project will advance the fundamental understanding of the impact of perovskite precursor ink chemistry on crystallisation and defect formation in halide perovskite thin-films. Halide perovskites are a class of low-cost, high-quality semiconductor materials which have the potential to enter and make significant impact in the photovoltaic (PV) and LED markets.  Importantly, by taking a bottom-up approach, this project aims to generate a detailed understanding of the chemistry of perovskite precursor inks, map the conversion processes from precursor ink to perovskite thin-film, and identify how and why manipulating the chemistry of precursor inks, grain boundaries and interfaces affects the nature and concentration of the defects, and the chemical composition and optoelectronic properties of perovskite thin-films. Through gaining understanding and control of these systems from a microscopic level, this project aims to deliver improved reproducibility and performance of perovskite PV and LEDs.

About The University of Oxford , England – Official Website

The University of Oxford is a collegiate research university in Oxford, England. There is evidence of teaching as early as 1096 making it the oldest university in the English-speaking world and the world’s second-oldest university in continuous operation. It grew rapidly from 1167 when Henry II banned English students from attending the University of Paris. After disputes between students and Oxford townsfolk in 1209, some academics fled north-east to Cambridge where they established what became the University of Cambridge. The two English ancient universities share many common features and are jointly referred to as Oxbridge.

The university is made up of thirty-nine semi-autonomous constituent colleges, six permanent private halls, and a range of academic departments which are organised into four divisions. All the colleges are self-governing institutions within the university, each controlling its own membership and with its own internal structure and activities. All students are members of a college. It does not have a main campus, and its buildings and facilities are scattered throughout the city centre. Undergraduate teaching at Oxford consists of lectures, small-group tutorials at the colleges and halls, seminars, laboratory work and occasionally further tutorials provided by the central university faculties and departments. Postgraduate teaching is provided predominantly centrally.
