We are seeking a Research Associate to join in the Aston Institute of Photonic Technologies (AiPT) one of the world's leading photonics research centres. AiPT comprises a vibrant team of researchers guided by world-leading academics with strong industry expertise and experience. AiPT cultivates an environment where academics, post-doctoral researchers and students cooperate to overcome major scientific challenges in a welcoming and collegial atmosphere. Our successful track record of scientific achievements ranges from nanophotonics, nonlinear photonics, and fibre lasers to medical lasers and bio-sensing for healthcare and the high-speed optical communications technology that underpins the internet and the digital economy.

It has recently been recognised that the fabrication of a range of emerging photonic microdevices promising to revolutionise computer, communication, and sensing technologies must be performed with unprecedented picometre (one- hundredth of the atomic size) precision.

You will be involved in the experimental and theoretical development of a new technology called Surface Nanoscale Axial Photonics (SNAP), enabling this astonishing picometre fabrication precision. You will also be assisting in the supervision of PhD students and writing high quality scientific papers and research proposals.

For informal enquiries about this position, you can contact Misha Sumetsky (Professor) [email protected].
