Post-doctoral Research Assistant in Optical Systems Engineering

Department of Engineering Science, Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3PJ

We are seeking a full-time Post-doctoral Research Assistant to join the Dynamic Optics and Photonics Group at the Department of Engineering Science (central Oxford). The post is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council and is fixed term until 31st October 2024, with a possible extension, subject to confirmed additional funding.

We are seeking a research scientist to work on the development of a new technology that would enable adaptive optical control using three dimensional spatial light modulation. This technology would replace existing bulky and impractical two-dimensional spatial light modulators, for applications ranging from imaging and communications to optical computation. The project will involve the design fabrication and testing of volume optical diffraction elements. These elements will be fabricated in glass using precision femtosecond laser machining that employs adaptive optics to correct aberrations induced when focusing into the substrate.

You should possess a PhD (or be near completion) in optoelectronic technologies and/or optical instrumentation and related systems together with demonstrable experience of applied optics and imaging. You should have sufficient expertise in optical engineering to be able to adapt and optimise systems for specific project tasks. Experience with modelling and simulations of optoelectronic devices and/or optical systems would be desirable.

Informal enquiries may be addressed to Prof Martin Booth (email: [email protected])

For more information about working at the Department, see www.

Only online applications received before midday on Tuesday, 21st May 2024 can be considered. You will be required to upload a covering letter/supporting statement, including a brief statement of research interests (describing how your past experience and future plans fit with the advertised position), CV and the details of two referees as part of your online application.

The Department holds an Athena Swan Bronze award, highlighting its commitment to promoting women in Science, Engineering and Technology.
