Applications are invited for the role of Postdoctoral Researcher in the School of Physics, Centre for Device Thermography and Reliability (CDTR), to contribute to the development of a novel solid immersion lens (SIL)-based sub-micron 3–D electric field mapping technique, enabling a step change in optical resolution. The researcher will study state of the art GaN RF HEMTs from UK and international suppliers, using the experimental data provided by this technique and device modelling, to further the understanding of this key technology.

The CDTR group is active in many EU, US, and UK research programmes, and is funded by the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the European Space Agency and other funding agencies as well as by industry.

Applicants should have postgraduate experience in physics, materials science or engineering, with a good publication record. The position requires expertise or interest in the development of optical measurement techniques and their application, as well as device simulation. A willingness to supervise postgraduate students will be necessary.

Funding for this position is available for 2 years in the first instance.

Informal enquiries (not applications) to Professor M. Kuball,, tel +44(0)117 928 8734.
