Postdoctoral Researcher in Nanoscale Engineering and Photonics
Department of Materials, Parks Road, Oxford
THIS IS A RE-ADVERTISEMENT PREVIOUS APPLICANTS NEED NOT APPLY
The Advanced Nanoscale Engineering Group is seeking highly motivated innovator
and scientist to develop and lead a new project as postdoctoral researcher.
The ability to think outside the box with creativity and having the drive and
ambition to develop those ideas in a highly experimental laboratory is what we
value in our colleagues. The right candidate will have the freedom to pursue
their own ideas in addition to contributing to funded programs in an open and
collaborative research group.
You will be working in either the rapidly emerging area of functional material
photonics, in non-von Neumann computing and/or photonic metasurfaces, a field
in which we have made significant strides in recent years. Alternatively you
may work in the emerging frontiers at the intersection of sustainable
nanomanufacturing and nanophotonics and/or optoelectronics, working towards
ideating and verifying new areas frontiers of research within the research
As part of your role you will have the opportunity to provide guidance to less
experienced members of the research group, including postdocs, research
assistants, technicians and PhD and project students, as well as represent the
PI when required in EU and other project meetings.
