Full time (1 FTE) fixed term contract for up to two years.
We will consider applications for employment on a part-time or other flexible working basis, even where a position is advertised as full-time, unless there are operational or other objective reasons why it is not possible to do so.
The Department of Physics seeks to appoint an ambitious Research Fellow to join the Ultrafast and Terahertz Photonics group at the University of Warwick. The position is available to start as soon as possible for up to two years in duration.
The position is funded by the EPSRC Terabotics programme grant Terabotics Programme Grant (warwick.ac.uk) which is an £8 Million pound project spanning three universities (Warwick, Leeds and Exeter) working to combine THz techniques with robotics for faster diagnosis of cancer. Joining this exciting project will give you the opportunity to work with a world class team led by Professor Emma MacPherson, and give you experience in a collaborative and interdisciplinary environment.
Your research goals will be related to developing reliable methods for implementing THz imaging and spectroscopy techniques for detection of skin cancer and other skin conditions. Particular focus will be on developing and integrating novel THz image approaches to speed up and improve the accuracy of terahertz data acquisition and analysis. You will need to have strong analytical skills with experience in matlab/python and have experience in THz spectroscopy or other relevant optical techniques.
You will be an excellent communicator capable of working effectively both independently and as part of a research team. You will possess excellent planning and time management skills to ensure your research objectives are achieved effectively.
If you are near submission or have recently submitted your PhD but have not yet had it conferred, any offers of employment will be made as Research Assistant at the top of level 5 of the University grade structure (£32,411). Upon receipt of evidence of the successful award of your PhD, you will be promoted to Research Fellow on the first point of level 6 of the University grade structure (£33,348). Higher grade points may be possible for those already with Postdoctoral experience.
