The Research Assistant/Associate will join the Integrated Quantum Photonics group, based in the Nanoscience Centre at the University of Cambridge, a newly founded research group that works on simulation, nanofabrication and optical characterisation of nano- and quantum photonic devices, integrating quantum light emitters.
They will work on a research project focused on the development of aperiodic photonic devices embedding light emitter for fundamental quantum optics experiments and for the realisation of single-photon devices and novel nano-lasers with enhanced performances for quantum technology applications.
Their work will build upon our recent work in the area [see, for instance, Applied Physics Letters 117, 124006 (2020)and Applied Physics Letters 118, 011103 (2021)] and will be conducted together with a PhD student who is already working on the same topic.
Funding is secured for 24 months. The initial contract will be for 12 months and it will be extended, pending satisfactory performances.
Education & qualifications: Applicants should have, or be close to obtaining, a PhD in Physics, Materials Science, Engineering or related areas.
Specialist knowledge & skills: Quantum photonics, quantum optics, nano-photonics, quantum dot and quantum well spectroscopy, nanofabrication, Finite-Difference Time-Domain simulations.
Appointment at Research Associate level is dependent on having a PhD. Those who have submitted but not yet received their PhD will be appointed at Research Assistant level, which will be amended to Research Associate once the PhD has been awarded.
Salary Ranges: Research Assistant: £29,605 - £33,966 Research Associate: £36,024 - £44,263
Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 12 months in the first instance.
