Postdoc Position in Integrated Photonics of Graphene and Related Materials

Applicants are invited to apply for a postdoctoral fellowship position in material sciences at University of Cambridge. This fellowship is last for 24 months and posible to extend. The deadline for applying is January 14, 2020.

A position exists, for a Research Associate to work on Integrated Photonics of Graphene and Related Materials at the Cambridge Graphene Centre, Department of Engineering, West Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, UK.

The aim is to develop a new class of integrated photonic and optoelectronic devices based graphene and related materials (GRMs), combining the versatile properties of GRMs with conventional three-dimensional semiconductors. Such devices will then be used in a wide range of applications such as on-chip optical routing, flexible optoelectronics, light emission, optical sensing and quantum communications. 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 GRMs

The successful candidate will hold a PhD in Applied Physics, Material Science, Nanotechnology or Electrical Engineering. A proven track record in photonics, optoelectronics in graphene and related materials, physics of low dimensional systems, plasmonics, near-field optics, CMOS technology and nanofabrication including, e-beam lithography and laser writing, on-chip optical and electrical characterizations, pump-probe 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, the physics of graphene and related materials is required.

The role holder would possess sufficient breadth/depth of specialist knowledge in the discipline and of research methods and techniques to develop research objectives, projects and proposals. The candidate will also have the ability to continually update knowledge in the specialist area; engage in continuous professional development and have experience of managing own workload. The candidate would possess sufficient administrative skills to manage EU project/s including financial management, experience in handing collaborations within EU projects, including reporting and attendance to project meetings.

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.
