Job Description

We are seeking for an experienced CMOS compatible Research Fellow and on-chip plasmonic/optoelectronic devices researcher.

You are expected to

  • Take responsibility for electrical generation, detection, and manipulation, of plasmons, or one of them.
  • Take responsibility for efficient plasmonic wave guiding and signal amplification to compensate for losses
  • Improve the efficiencies of the on-chip plasmonic devices by deepening scientific understanding of electron-plasmon coupling and plasmon confinement vs. propagation length by studying plasmonic materials and waveguide configurations. 
  • Demonstrate CMOS compatible working devices with industry grade materials and work towards translation of our technology.
  • Provide a demo of a transceiver with high-speed transmission of data through plasmonic interconnects (in a lab-demonstrator) suitable for “beyond Moore” applications.
  • Solving multi-disciplinary problems, including preparation of documentation and presentation of results of processing/testing to peers.


  • Possess a PhD degree in Materials/Physics/Chemistry/Optical Engineering or related field specialization in the design and fabrication of micro/nano optoelectronic devices.  
  • Knowledge and experiences in condensed matter physics, photonics and materials science (semiconductor physics), micro-nano fabrication technologies, on-chip light sources or high-speed detectors design, etc.
  • Minimum 2-year practical experiences in the design, fabrication and testing of on-chip plasmonic/optoelectronic devices.
  • Technical proposal writing and presentation skills.
  • Able to plan and organize well and adhere to deadlines.
  • Open to fixed-term contract
