Research Associate in Advanced Optical Spectroscopy of Condensed Matter Nano-systems

University of Sheffield - Faculty of Science - Department of Physics and Astronomy

Location: Sheffield
Salary: £30,688 to £38,833 per annum, Grade 7
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 10th July 2018
Closes: 10th September 2018
Job Ref: UOS019653

Contract Type: Fixed-term for 24 months

We have an exciting opportunity in the Department of Physics and Astronomy for someone to use their skills to explore novel polariton phenomena arising from light-matter hybridisation in microcavity and waveguide photonic structures with embedded atomically thin two-dimensional materials such as transition metal dichalcogenides. This research stems from the advanced experimental techniques pioneered in Sheffield.

You will join the Low Dimensional Structures & Devices Group where this post has arisen as part of a large collaboration between Sheffield and Manchester funded by EPSRC that that will involve 4 investigators (D Krizhanovskii and A Tartakovskii in Sheffield, K Novoselov and V Falko in Manchester) supervising one postdoc each. On this project, you will work as part of the multi-disciplinary team of 4 postdoctoral researchers. In this project you will be supervised by Dr. Dmitry Krizhanovskii. More information on Polaritonics and 2D materials groups in Sheffield can be found at and

You will have, or be about to obtain, a PhD in condensed matter physics (or related discipline) or have equivalent experience and have strong experience in advanced optical spectroscopy. Experience in polariton and/or 2D materials physics is desirable.

We are committed to exploring flexible working opportunities which benefit the individual and University.
