The Advanced Nanoscale Engineering Group is seeking a highly motivated and innovative scientist to develop and lead a new project as a postdoctoral researcher. The ability to think outside the box with creativity, along with having the drive and ambition to develop those ideas in a highly experimental laboratory is what we value in our colleagues. The right candidate will have the freedom to pursue their own ideas in addition to contributing to funded programs in an open and collaborative research group.
You will be working in either the rapidly emerging area of functional material photonics, in non-von Neumann computing and/or photonic metasurfaces, a field in which we have made significant strides in recent years. Alternatively you may work in the emerging frontiers at the intersection of sustainable nanomanufacturing and nanophotonics and/or optoelectronics, working towards ideating and verifying these new ideas within the research group.
As part of your role you will have the opportunity to provide guidance to less experienced members of the research group, including postdocs, research assistants, technicians and PhD and project students, as well as represent the PI when required in EU and other project meetings.
You will hold a PhD (or be close to completion) in a relevant subject area. You will possess a combination of scientific and technical skills that can help develop next generation technologies within the infrastructure constraints we have access to or can be realistically built up. You will have exceptional initiative and the ability to work independently at the highest level, including a demonstrable ability to complete projects and manage your own area of academic research.
All applications must be made online using the Oxford University E-Recruitment system, no later than 12 noon on 31 July 2023. You will be required to upload a CV and a Supporting Statement as part of your application. Please do not attach any manuscripts, papers, transcripts, mark sheets or certificates as these will not be considered as part of your application.
Interviews are scheduled to take place at the Department of Materials shortly after the closing date and you must be available during this time via Teams or Zoom.
