Research Fellow in strong light-matter interaction in cuprous oxide microcavities – AR2181MR
School of Physics and Astronomy
Vacancy Description
School of Physics & Astronomy, Salary: £33,199 - £36,261 per annum, Fixed Term: 18 months, Start: 1 May 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in nanophotonics, to work within the Quantum Fluids of Light group at the University of St Andrews. The position will involve working on spectroscopy and strong light-matter coupling of cuprous oxide in microcavities.

We are seeking a researcher with expertise in the fabrication and spectroscopy of semiconductor materials. The successful candidate will design novel nanophotonic structures, fabricate these and measure their photonic properties. The candidate will have access to the extensive fabrication and characterisation facilities at the School of Physics and Astronomy, and will work in collaboration with partner universities (Heriot-Watt in UK and National Tsing Hua University in Taiwan) and Cambridge Hitachi Laboratory. A PhD in a physical science is required. Prior experience of spectroscopy is essential.

Start date: 1st May 2019

End Date: 30th October 2020.

The University is committed to equality for all, demonstrated through our working on diversity awards (ECU Athena SWAN/Race Charters; Carer Positive; LGBT Charter; and Stonewall). More details can be found at
