Postdoc Position in Terahertz Plasmonics at Imperial College London

A new postdoc position in signal processing is available at Imperial College London. Applications are invited up to January 12, 2020.

Applications are invited for a Research Associate position in the area of theoretical terahertz plasmonics, based at Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Imperial College London. The research will be conducted as a part of an EPSRC funded project on the physics of plasmonic gain in low-dimensional electronic systems, in collaboration with the University of Leeds. The post is until 30 November 2020; a short extension might be sought subject to the funder's permission and funds available.

The aim of the project is to demonstrate plasmonic gain in a solid-state system, by engineering the interactions of plasmons with dc currents in geometrically asymmetric two-dimensional electron systems. This will lead to the design of self-oscillating plasmonic structures, through a joint programme of fundamental experimental (Leeds University) and theoretical (Imperial College) work, and ultimately the realisation of new classes of device, including emitters in the terahertz (THz) frequency range, for which there is a breadth of potential applications. 1) To develop theoretical models (both analytical and numerical) of THz plasmons interacting with dc currents in low-dimensional electronic system.

2) To contribute to the design, in collaboration with the project partners (Leeds University), systems for studying plasmon amplification and generation. 3) To contribute to the analysis of experimental results, as and when provided by the project partners. 4) To contribute to the timely production of project deliverables. 5) To closely follow and contribute to the progress of the project and cooperate with other researchers in the group. 6) To write technical reports, publications and patent applications. 7) To disseminate research results. 8) To take initiatives in the planning of research. 9) To ensure the validity and reliability of data at all times. 10) To maintain accurate and complete records of all findings. 11) To write reports for submission to research sponsors. 12) To present findings to colleagues and at conferences. 13) To submit publications to refereed journals. 14) To provide guidance to staff and students. 15) To develop contacts and research collaborations within the College and the wider community. 16) To act as the representative for Imperial College London in meetings with partners, conference calls and international conferences. 17) Where Imperial or funder conditions necessitate, you will be required to complete timesheets for your work on projects in a timely manner. The successful applicant will hold a PhD (or equivalent) in Electrical Engineering or Physics. A track record in theoretical electromagnetism is essential, ideally demonstrated in at least one of the following fields: plasmonics, metamaterials, electromagnetic device modelling, terahertz electronics. Good written and oral communication skills in English are essential, as well as strong interpersonal skills. Experience in using COMSOL Multiphysics is essential. Experience in collaborating with experimental research groups is desirable.
