Postdoc Position on MOVPE Growth of InP Quantum Droplets

Postdoc Position on MOVPE Growth of InP Quantum Droplets

Tyndall National Institute

Cork, Ireland

Key Responsibilities

The main focus of this position is developing novel epitaxial growth protocols to develop advanced site-controlled quantum dot structures, capable of hosting excitonic Wigner molecule assemblies. The work will include running structural characterization techniques, such as AFM and XRD, as guidance in the development of such structures.

The postdoc position will also involve collaborating with the rest of the EPN group, including growth and structural characterization of more conventional device structure (lasers, modulators, LEDs, etc.), or any other projects such as polycrystalline III-V on foreign substrates.

The successful candidate is also expected to collaborate with the rest of the EPN group on industrial engagement and projects.

The successful candidate is also expected to engage in PhD mentoring and supervision, and also follow Tyndall outreach engagement policies.

Other responsibilities:

  • Participate in Education and Public Engagement activities, as required;
  • Ensure all activities are compliant with the Tyndall Quality Management system;
  • Ensure all activities are compliant with the required Health and Safety standards;
  • Carry out any additional duties as may reasonably be required within the general scope and level of the post.

The Postdoc level position is open for candidates of EU and non EU nationalities. We welcome applications from talented candidates with strong motivation and experimental skills. The appointment is for one year with the possibility of extension (up to four years), and previous experience in the field is preferentially requested.

The group is led by Dr. E. Pelucchi.

Essential Criteria

  • Postdoctoral applicants must hold a PhD in Physics or a related discipline before the start of the contract;
  • They should have a rich CV and experience in MOVPE, or at least in a field close to the topics (MOVPE of nanostructures, QDs, MBE, etc.) to be investigated.

Desirable Criteria

  • Highly self-motivated applicants with strong experimental attitude;
  • Preference will be given to candidates with strong background in at least one of the following areas: MOVPE, QDs as light sources, MOVPE or MBE growth of nanostructures.
