The Department of Photonics Engineering (DTU Fotonik, Denmark) invites applications for a position as a Senior Researcher in the Group of Metamaterials.
The position will involve both scientific research, supervision and advisory work related to nanophotonics with metamaterials. The candidate will be engaged in on-going projects on sensing applications of novel metamaterials and related nano-optic phenomena.
The successful candidate will become part of the Research Group of Metamaterials. Focus areas of the group are design, fabrication and characterization of novel nanostructures for application in nanophotonics. Our interest is mainly in so-called metamaterials, with artificially engineered optical and electromagnetic properties, e.g. hyperbolic metamaterials, epsilon-near-zero materials, water-based metamaterials, all-dielectric metasurfaces for a wide variety of waves from visible to microwave frequencies. We are massively using DTU Nanolab (cleanroom) facilities for advanced nanofabrication.
We seek a candidate capable of working independently, who is motivated by both personal and team accomplishments.
Responsibililties and tasks
The successful candidate is expected to contribute forefront research and innovation within nanophotonics. A special focus will be given for the mid-infrared wavelength region for spectroscopic and sensing purposes. Detection and identification of molecules has a significant impact on both fundamental research and various applications from environmental monitoring to medical and clinical diagnosis. The mid-infrared absorption spectroscopy offers a unique label-free detection scheme thanks to the characteristic light absorption features of molecules in the mid-infrared wavelengths. The position is to generate fundamental insight relevant to novel nano-optic phenomena in nanostructures and to apply them for mid-infrared absorption sensing to improve the sensitivity of biomarkers detection.
