Applications are invited for a fixed-term, full-time Postdoctoral Research Officer in Nanophotonics/Nano-Optomechanics/Optical Microrobotics at the Nanophotonic Devices and Systems Laboratory within the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering, Bangor University.
Main duties will include design and simulation of semiconductor and plasmonic nano-optomechanical and MEMS devices for photonic and micro-robotic applications, together with running optical tests for characterisation of the aforementioned devices and systems. In addition, having microfabrication skills for realising the abovementioned devices is desirable.
Candidates should possess a PhD (or near completion) in engineering (electrical/electronics/mechanical/optical), physics or a related area, preferably with a special focus on photonics.
Previous experience and practical knowledge of integrated photonics and semiconductor technologies is essential to the post. Previous hands-on experience in optical laboratory practices, free space optics, fibre optic technology and cleanroom microfabrication processes is highly desirable. In addition to experience using specialised design and simulation software (i.e., MATLAB and COMSOL), candidates should also possess good general computer programming skills, preferably applied to some or all of the following areas: instrument control; signal/image processing and experiment automation.
The successful candidate will be expected to commence in September 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter, and the post is available until 31/08/2020, with a possibility of a further year extension subject to funding.
Starting Salary: £33,199 (Grade 7) p.a.
