Research Assistant/Associate (Fixed Term) - Department of Physics University of Cambridge, Department of Physics United Kingdom

Research Assistant/Associate (Fixed Term)


Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position investigating integrated quantum photonics with atomically thin 2d materials at the Cavendish Laboratory (Department of Physics, University of Cambridge).

 

The successful candidate will join the Atomic, Mesoscopic and Optical Physics (AMOP) research group to work with Prof Mete Atature. The group's research focuses on quantum science and applications using solid-state light-matter interfaces. In particular, the research themes are Spin-based Quantum Networks, Quantum Sensing in the Nanoscale and Novel Materials for Quantum Devices. The physical systems currently investigated include semiconductor quantum dots, colour centres in diamond and atomically thin layered materials.

 

We are looking for an experimental quantum and/or nanoscale optics expert with a PhD in Physics or Applied Physics. Experience in the optics of layered materials is also essential. Where the successful applicant does not yet have a PhD at the time of appointment, he/she will normally be under-appointed as a Research Assistant in a Research Associate post (on the understanding that he/she will be appointed as a Research Associate upon successful completion of his/her PhD).

 

The application closing date is January 27th, 2019. Applications will be reviewed after the closing date and interviews conducted in early February 2019. The candidate would ideally start as soon as possible after March 1st, 2019. The post will be a fixed term appointment for 2 years in the first instance with the possibility for an extension. The work will be funded by the EU Quantum Flagship project 2D-SIPC.

 

Fixed-term: The funds for this post are available for 2 years in the first instance.

 

Successful candidates who have not been awarded their PhD by the appointment date will be appointed as a Research Assistant at Grade 5 (£26,243 - £30,395 per annum). Upon award of the PhD the individual will be promoted to Research Associate, Grade 7 (£32,236 - £39,609 per annum).
