Postdoc Position in -electronic Devices Based on Graphene Related Materials and Hetero Structures X 2

University of Cambridge, UK has an opening postdoctoral associate position in material sciences. The funding allows successful candidate to work for 24 months. Candidates are welcome before December 14, 2018.

Two positions exist for Research Associates in (Opto)-Electronic Devices Based on Graphene, Related Materials and Hetero Structures.

The post holders will be located in the Cambridge Graphene Centre, 9 JJ Thomson Avenue, Cambridge (West Cambridge), Cambridgeshire, CB3 0FA, UK.

The aim is to develop a new class of integrated photonic and optoelectronic devices based on layered materials, their heterostructures and hybrid platforms, combining the versatile properties of layered materials with conventional 3d semiconductors. These devices will then be used in a wide range of applications, such as on-chip optical routing, flexible optoelectronics, light emission and optical sensing. This is an ambitious research program, with a strong interdisciplinary nature, across photonics, plasmonics, device physics, electrical engineering and nanotechnology, and it will require the realization of novel devices for wide range of applications such as photodetectors, optical modulators, optical amplifiers, lasers, biosensors etc. based on integrated layered materials and hetero-structures.

The successful candidates will hold a PhD in Photonics, Physics, Material Science, Nanotechnology or Electrical Engineering with a proven track record in photonics, optoelectronics of low dimensional systems, plasmonics, near-field optics, CMOS technology and nanofabrication, including on-chip optical and electrical characterizations, pump-probe techniques and fast electro-optical measurements. Preference will be given to candidates with proven track record in silicon photonics, fabrication and optoelectronic characterization of graphene, related layered materials or other nanoscale photonic devices, as demonstrated by publications in major journals. A solid understanding of device physics and the physics of graphene and related materials is required.

Experience in handing collaborations within EU projects, including reporting and attendance to project meetings is also essential. The candidates will also have the ability to continually update knowledge in the specialist area and engage in continuous professional development; have experience of managing own workload.

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 24 months in the first instance.

Once an offer of employment has been accepted, the successful candidate will be required to undergo a health assessment.
