A Research Fellow position is currently available at the Centre for Disruptive Photonic Technologies (CDPT) in the School of Physical & Mathematical Sciences.

The Research Fellow will lead experimental research exploring growth of high quality thin films based on superconducting and topological materials, characterization of structural and optoelectronic properties and fabrication of quantum devices such as superconducting nanowire single photon detectors (SNSPD) and topological transport devices.

Job Responsibilities

  • Generate a substantial body of novel experimental, theoretical and numerical work in materials exploration, optimization of film performance, optimization of films and quantum devices. This may also require working with visiting researchers, students and travelling internationally to conduct collaborative work
  • Run and maintain the Quantum Materials Discovery Facility at CDPT for individual and collaborative projects
  • Manage interactions with local and international collaborators of the centre
  • Contribute managing existing grants and reporting to the funding bodies, organize and attend regular research project meetings
  • Assist in the supervision of PhD students
  • Prepare publications for leading scientific journals and at disseminate results at local and international conferences
  • Support the development of future grant proposals, and the development and protection of intellectual property

Job Requirements

  • PhD in Physics, Optical Engineering, Material Science, or closely-related disciplines
  • 8 or more years of relevant research experience in materials growth and characterization. Direct experience with superconducting and topological materials, and techniques such as sputtering, molecular beam epitaxy, or closely related ones, is highly desirable
  • Solid knowledge and in depth understanding of solid state physics, quantum optics, nanophotonics, or other relevant disciplines etc
  • Experience with vacuum and cryogenic technologies and standard structural characterization techniques (AFM, FIB, TEM, SEM, EELS, EDX, PES etc)
  • Excellent track record of scientific publications in international peer reviewed journals
  • Ability to work independently and as part of a team with strong initiative
  • Good communication and interpersonal skills
