Research Scientist (Research Fellow) or Senior Research Scientist (Senior Research Fellow) (Optoelectronics Devices and Systems)

Cardiff University - Cardiff School of Engineering

As part of the initial phase of a major investment programme, Cardiff University seeks to appoint a Research Scientist (Research Fellow) or Senior Research Scientist (Senior Research Fellow) in the general area of compound semiconductors devices and systems with direct applications to sensing, communication or medical diagnostics.  Topical areas of interest include nanostructured optoelectronics, quantum technologies, metamaterials, co-integration.  This new position supports a larger effort forming the Institute for Compound Semiconductors (ICS) at Cardiff University. The ICS forms part of Cardiff University’s £300m investment in new research and innovation centres, and its potential is already recognised by the Welsh and UK governments, who have invested over £29m towards its creation.  The ICS will be a unique facility in Europe, based in a new building, and equipped with state-of-the art fabrication and characterisation facilities including a full 8” fabrication line as well as a related small area process capability, epitaxy, material and device characterisation. It will enable novel research and development along with strong engagement with industry.  This will position Cardiff to become the UK and European leader in translational research in Compound Semiconductors.
 
As a Research Scientist (Research Fellow) (Grade 7) you will lead or work within research projects to further the state-of-art in compounds semiconductor optoelectronic devices and nanostructures, within School of Engineering and the Institute for Compound Semiconductor (ICS); to publish in high-quality journals, build collaborative networks and pursue technology transfer while inspiring others to do the same.
