The Aston Institute of Photonic Technologies (AIPT), one of the largest photonics research groups in the UK, is seeking to appoint a Research Fellow. The successful candidate will be involved in experimental and theoretical development of the recently invented revolutionary micro/nanophotonic platform Surface Nanoscale Axial Photonics (SNAP) which is being developed at AIPT. SNAP considers slow propagation of whispering gallery modes in an optical fibre. The speed of propagation of these modes is so slow that it can be governed by extremely small nanometre-scale changes of the optical fibre radius. This phenomenon is employed in SNAP to fabricate miniature ultralow loss photonic devices and integrated circuits with unprecedented precision and low loss.

The candidate will have to generate breakthrough ideas in the assigned area of research, as well as to carry out research in line with the project plan and contribute to publications of research outcomes in high impact journals and major international conferences.

The candidate will need to have a PhD degree in photonics or related fields of physics and optics.
