School of Physics and Astronomy, Cardiff University
As part of an on-going programme of investment and development to support the development of a Compound Semiconductor Research and Manufacturing Cluster in South Wales, the School of Physics and Astronomy, Cardiff University is seeking to appoint one or more positions in Compound Semiconductor Physics.
You should share our passion for high quality interdisciplinary research-led learning and teaching and be able to contribute to a range of undergraduate and postgraduate teaching of Physics and Astronomy. You will also supervise MSc and PhD students.
The successful candidates will demonstrate an ability to conduct and sustain an internationally recognised, externally funded, interdisciplinary research programme within the broad topic of Compound Semiconductor Physics commensurate with the level of appointment. A strong commitment to research based on Compound Semiconductor device fabrication and to raise research funding to support this fabrication is essential. Areas of interest may include, but not restricted to, any fabrication of devices from CS materials such as GaAs, InSb, InP and GaN and their application and developing understanding of the underlying operation of materials, devices and application. An interest in emerging and developing materials is also desirable. We are especially interested in appointing academics who can develop synergies within our existing research portfolio, within the Institute for Compound Semiconductors and School of Physics and Astronomy.
The Institute for Compound Semiconductors and School of Physics and Astronomy are lively and dynamic communities that aim (no s) to promote sustainability through education, dissemination, and direct participation, enabling students and staff to make positive changes to our environmental impact and our local and national economy.
The School holds IOP Juno Champion and Athena SWAN Silver awards and is actively striving to further improve both the reality and recognition of our inclusive working practices. We particularly welcome female applicants and those from an ethnic minority, as they are under-represented within the School at these levels.
The position is full-time (35 hours per week), available immediately and is open-ended.
The appointments will be made, dependent on relevant qualification and experience within the professorial grade band:
Salary: a point on the professorial scale (starting at £71,209 per annum)
For informal enquiries, please contact Professor Peter Smowton, Head of School and Managing Director of the Institute for Compound Semiconductors, Email: SmowtonPM@Cardiff.ac.uk or Professor Haley Gomez, Deputy-Head of School, Email: GomezH@Cardiff.ac.uk

Cardiff University is committed to supporting and promoting equality and diversity and to creating an inclusive working environment. We believe this can be achieved through attracting, developing, and retaining a diverse range of staff from many different backgrounds who have the ambition to create a University which seeks to fulfil our social, cultural and economic obligation to Cardiff, Wales, and the world. In supporting our employees to achieve a balance between their work and their personal lives, we will also consider proposals for flexible working or job share arrangements.
Cardiff University is a signatory to the San Francisco Declaration on Research Assessment (DORA), which means that in hiring and promotion decisions we will evaluate applicants on the quality of their research, not publication metrics or the identity of the journal in which the research is published.
