Lecturer in Functional Photonics
The Department of Physics is seeking to recruit a Lecturer in Functional Photonics, in the Photonics & Nanotechnology (P&N) research group. The successful candidate will undertake internationally leading research in functional photonics and its applications and help in the delivery and development of high-quality undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programmes. The appointee will have research interests in experimental photonics which complement existing photonics research within the P&N group currently encompassing nanophotonics, plasmonics, metamaterials, atto-physics and opto-mechanics. The areas of particular interest include, but are not limited to, photonic processes and materials for energy conversion, nano-photochemistry and nano-photocatalysis, and generally Net-Zero photonic technology. Exceptional candidates in theoretical photonics will also be considered.
The Department of Physics at King’s College London is diverse, international, and friendly with a positive atmosphere of collaboration and support between research groups. We offer a welcoming environment and welcome applications from applicants of all backgrounds.
The successful candidates must have developed a creative, original, and distinctive research vision, a high-quality publication record and should have the potential to secure external research funding. We are looking for researchers with the qualities to build a team, to function within the group and with the ability to provide high-quality teaching. We are looking for candidates who can demonstrate creativity, enthusiasm for group, intergroup and interdepartmental collaborations and qualities which will help to maintain and enhance the culture of the Department of Physics.
Within King’s, you will be part of the department of Physics, which belongs to the Faculty of Natural, Mathematical & Engineering Sciences (NMES). Supporting our staff is important to us and we offer a range of provision including flexible working, caring support, and training opportunities. The university is making significant investment in the Faculty and both student and staff numbers are growing. Our staff come from over 45 countries and around 56% of our students are from outside the UK.

The study of Physics at King's dates back to the foundation of the College in 1829. The Department is currently undergoing significant growth with substantial investment in new appointments, research infrastructure and laboratory space refurbishment. We offer a range of BSc (three-year) and MSci (four-year) undergraduate courses as well as MSc and PhD programmes.
