Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Ultrafast Terahertz Spectroscopy and Imaging

Clarendon Laboratory, Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3PU

Fixed term for 24 months with possible extension

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position in the Department of Physics at the University of Oxford to work on a project involving terahertz time-domain spectroscopy and imaging. Over the course of the project, we will develop and implement instrumentation that will enable us to gain a deep understand nanoscale charge dynamics in semiconductor nanowires and metal-halide-perovskite semiconductors. The advances made will contribute to our active existing research programme in developing efficient multijunction solar cells.

The role promises to be exciting and challenging, and we will rely on the successful applicant significantly advancing both the technology and our fundamental understanding of optoelectronic processes occurring in energy conversion materials.

The successful candidates will possess or be close obtaining a PhD in physics, materials science, chemistry, or engineering and have excellent problem- solving skills. They will have specific expertise in terahertz spectroscopy and/or scanning probe microscopy (ideally ultrafast terahertz near-field microscopy or scanning tunnelling microscopy). They should also be able to demonstrate a capability to develop and build scientific instruments. In addition, they will have excellent verbal and written skills in English and a track record of high-quality publications.

The post-holder will have the opportunity to teach.

The post is available initially for a fixed-term duration of 24 months.

Please direct informal enquiries about the role to Prof Michael Johnston [email protected]

Only applications received before midday 22 April 2024 can be considered. You will be required to upload a brief statement of research interests, CV and details of two referees as part of your online application.
