“Help Shape The Future” - The ATI is recruiting

Tuesday 18 October 2016

The ATI is looking to strengthen its staff, support and student base with several exciting opportunities

Advanced Technology Institute (ATI)

The University of Surrey has been dedicated to solving global challenges since 1891 with leading research and innovation. The ATI is a premier Institute within Surrey, and consolidates the University of Surrey’s research activities in nanotechnology, quantum sciences, materials and devices for future electronics and photonics applications. We specialise in light-matter interactions and nano-scale designed devices for technology applications with dedicated major facilities for fabrication and characterisation. The ATI is an example of ‘under one roof’ multidisciplinary research, housing 150 researchers including engineers, physicists, material scientists, biologists and chemists. The National Physical Laboratory’s NPL-South Hub is based within the ATI and we also support an MSc in Nanotechnology and Renewable Energy.

The ATI’s research focus increasingly addresses the perceived ‘grand challenges’ in energy (in particular photovoltaics, storage and LEDs) photonics and quantum sciences and nano-scale material engineering and manufacturing. The ATI’s activities are divided into four research groups: nanoelectronics, photonics and quantum sciences, ion beams and theory & computation. Science and technology on the nanoscale, technological applications of quantum science, and advanced computer simulation are some of the cross-cutting themes uniting the groups.

Research in the ATI is inherently multidisciplinary, with staff/students belonging to Electrical and Electronic Engineering or Physics, with academic staff taking full teaching roles in these Departments. Recent joint appointments with CPE have addressed nano-materials and manufacturing. There is strong collaboration with industry, providing access to industrial expertise and routes for exploitation. 


The ATI is looking to strengthen its staff, support and student base with the following exciting opportunities:

Professor in Photonics

We are looking for an outstanding and world-class leader to progress research in light-matter interactions, materials and device physics through to photonic systems for application. The appointee will help enhance and exploit the extensive characterisation and clean room facilities at the ATI. Details here.

Professor in Ion Implantation Technology

An outstanding individual is being sought to complement our expertise ion beams, materials processing and metrology. The candidate will need to collaborate extensively with industry and multiple partners in academia. Details here.

Lecturer/Senior Lecturer in Energy Technology (focus on energy harvesting and storage)

We are seeking to appoint a new member for the academic team at to contribute and expand to our research portfolio in energy technology, particularly to focus on renewables and energy storage for powering devices within wired and for wireless IoT. Details here.

12 x PhD Studentships

Applications are invited from UK/EU students with, or expecting to gain, a first or upper second class honours degree in Electrical & Electronic Engineering, Mathematics, Computer Science, Physics or similar numerate discipline to join the ATI. Details here.
