Applications are invited for the post of Postdoctoral Research Associate (PDRA) at the university of Liverpool, as part of the 5-year E.R.C. project SPUD: Single-Photon Unimolecular Devices, funded by UKRI under the Frontier Research Guarantee scheme.
The project aims at developing single-molecule optoelectronic devices, leveraging the opportunities given by synthetic chemistry into the wider field of quantum electronics and photonics. Our final aim is to synthesise novel molecular emitters and integrate them in nanoscale electrical devices, to exploit their two-level nature towards efficient single-photon emission. The successful candidate will be based in Dr Andrea Vezzoli’s research group pcwww.liv.ac.uk/~skeja.
You should have – or are about to receive – a PhD in physical chemistry, physics or in a suitable area of material science or engineering, with experience in nanoscale measurements or quantum metrology. We are especially interested in candidates with expertise in nanoelectronics, nanophotonics, or nanofabrication. Experience in physical methods for the evaluation of properties of matter at the single-molecule level is desirable, but training can be given in Liverpool on break-junction techniques.
The position is available on a fixed term basis from January 2024 for 3 years, with the possibility of an extension to the end of the project (January 2029).
Applicants still awaiting their PhD to be awarded should be aware that, if successful, they will be appointed at grade 6, spine point 30. Upon confirmation of the award of their PhD, they will be moved onto grade 7, spine point 31 from the date of their award.
