September 1, 2021


  • Organisation/Company: Institute of Physics, CAS, Prague
  • Research Field: Physics › Solid state physics
  • Researcher Profile: First Stage Researcher (R1)
  • Application Deadline: 01/09/2021 02:00 - Europe/Brussels
  • Location: Czech Republic › Prague 6
  • Type Of Contract: Temporary
  • Job Status: Full-time
  • Hours Per Week: 40
  • This position is funded by the Czech Academy of Sciences via the Lumina project (Czech equivalent to the ERC).

    The project is focused on the study of novel optical properties of diamond light-emitting optical centers embedded in diamond thin films and single- crystal diamond. The PhD will employ means of time-resolved spectroscopy to investigate PL spectra and decay, quantum yield and single-photon emission of the NV, SiV, GeV centers in photonic structures using state-of-the-art experimental equipment. Furthermore, he will have a chance to learn a CVD growth of diamond samples.

    Position: The fellow will be part of a young research team. She/he will be responsible mostly for experimental study of the fabricated samples. But also will have a chance to fabricate the samples. Namely, she/he will work in the optical laboratory using ultrafast fs laser, streak camera and pump&probe technique, streak camera, TCSPC and optical He cryostat) etc. The fellow will build new experimental setups, program them with LABVIEW, analyze the data and write manuscripts.


    • Master in physics (optics, semiconductor and solid-state physics or nanostructures)

    • A reasonable background in optical spectroscopy techniques, experience in experimental work with lasers, building confocal microscopy setup, single-dot spectroscopy etc. Experience in building and designing experiments.

    • Expertise in photonic crystals and computation techniques such as FDTD is considered a plus but is not mandatory.

    • Good track of publication records.

    • Good oral and written English.

    Application: Applications should include:

    • A CV and list of publications.

    • Names and e-mail addresses of two referees

    Funding: A full-time position funded for 4 years. Salary will depend on the experience, 5 weeks of holiday, various employee benefits.
