How to update your personal details

Profile photo
Upload your profile photo in Subscribe (opens in a new tab). Your profile photo in Pure is not linked to your public staff profile. Choose a clear, recent headshot where you are easily recognisable. Your image should be at least 340 by 395 pixels. 

To change your name or prefix title contact Ask HR (opens in new tab)  If you want to update an academic title you'll need to provide evidence e.g. a PhD certificate. The way your name is displayed is automatic and cannot be changed. You can also update your post-nominal letters in Subscribe (opens in a new tab).

Job title
Raise a request through ServiceNow (opens in a new tab) to change your job title (40 characters maximum) unless you're on the ERE career pathway. If you're on the ERE path you can not change your main job title, but you can request other minor updates through Ask HR (opens in new tab). If you have more than one post only your main job title will display here, but you can add further posts or roles in other sections of your profile.

Research interests (for researchers only)
Add up to 5 research interests. The first 3 will appear in your staff profile next to your name. The full list will appear on your research page. Keep these brief and focus on the keywords people may use when searching for your work. Use a different line for each one.

In Pure (opens in a new tab), select ‘Edit profile’. Under the heading 'Curriculum and research description', select 'Add profile information'. In the dropdown menu, select 'Research interests: use separate lines'.

Contact details
Add or update your email address, telephone number and postal address in Subscribe (opens in a new tab). Use your University email address for your primary email. 

You can link to your Google Scholar, LinkedIn and Twitter accounts through Pure (opens in a new tab). Select ‘Edit profile’.  In the 'Links' section, use the 'Add link' button. 

Create or connect your ORCID ID in Pure (opens in a new tab). Select ‘Edit profile’ and then 'Create or Connect your ORCID ID'.

Accepting PhD applicants (for researchers only)
Choose to show whether you’re currently accepting PhD applicants or not in Pure (opens in a new tab). Select ‘Edit profile’. In the 'Portal details' section, select 'Yes' or 'No' to indicate your choice. 


Dr Jun-Yu Ou, known as Bruce Ou is a senior research fellow in the Optoelectronics Research Centre(ORC) and a senior researcher in the Centre for Photonic Metamaterials, where he leads research efforts on the topic of opto-nanomechanical metamaterials and nanoimaging. His research has led to impacts on the fields of nanophotonics and metamaterials as evidenced by more than 40 high-profile journal publications including first author papers in Nature Nanotechnology, Nature Communications, Advanced Materials, Nano Letters, an h-index of 20 and 2200+ (Google Scholar) citations, 100+ conference contributions and 3 patents. His work has also been internationally recognized by 28 invited presentations at major conferences such as SPIE Photonics and CLEO. Furthermore, the success in the area of nano-optomechanical metamaterials has attracted global attention in both academic (Nature, Laser Focus World) and commercial news outlets (BBC, Financial Times).

    He was instrument specialist of Electron Microscopes and Focused Ion Beam (FIB) at the FEI Company before he joined the ORC to undertake his doctoral studies at the crossroads of nanotechnology and nanophotonics in 2010. He completed his PhD on "Reconfigurable Photonic Metamaterials" and was awarded the Institute of Physics Doctoral Research Prize in 2015 and the prestigious EPSRC doctoral prize fellowship, which allowed him to undertake independent research for one year. At the end of the EPSRC doctoral prize, he was appointed a theme leader on the flagship EPSRC programme “Nanostructured Photonic Metamaterials” followed by “The Physics and Technology of Photonic Metadevices and Metasystems” at the ORC.

How to update your 'about' section

You can update this in Pure (opens in a new tab). Select ‘Edit profile’. Under the heading and then ‘Curriculum and research description’, select ‘Add profile information’. In the dropdown menu, select - ‘About’.

Write about yourself in the third person. Aim for 100 to 150 words covering the main points about who you are and what you currently do. Clear, simple language is best. You can include specialist or technical terms.

You’ll be able to add details about your research, publications, career and academic history to other sections of your staff profile.
