About this opportunity

Under the British Council Researcher Links scheme, Aston University in the UK and the Institute of Automation and Electrometry (Siberian branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences) in Russia are now recruiting early career researchers and welcome applications to attend the workshop 'New Advanced Materials and Systems for Photonics and Sensors'. 

The workshop will provide a unique opportunity for sharing research expertise and networking. During the workshop early career researchers will have the opportunity to present their research in the form of a short oral (or poster) presentation and discuss this with established researchers from the UK and Russia. Researcher Links programme will cover the costs related to the participation to the workshop, including: travel (both international and local), visa, accommodation and meals. 


We are inviting early career researchers from the UK and Russia to attend this workshop. Relevant disciplines include: Plasmonics and nanophotonics, Hybrid and quantum materials, Nanoparticles, Nanotubes; Photonic crystals, Plasmon-enhanced photovoltaics and solar fuels, Nanoscale imaging, Chemical sensing, Photopolymers, Optical data storage, Fiber optics, Nanofibers, Applications of these innovative materials in optical communication systems, optical sensing, nanoscale imaging, biology and medicine, photonics combined with electronics and software for creation of a working system.

Early Career Researchers are defined as holding a PhD (or having equivalent research or industrial experience) and having up to 10 years post-PhD research and/or industry experience. They are equivalent to the ‘Recognised Researcher’ and sometimes ‘Experienced  Researcher’ categories in the EU framework for researchers’ careers (see below). 

How can I apply?
