Seeking world-class photonics researchers
Owing to substantial recent funding in the areas of hollow core optical fibres (and their applications in telecommunication, lasers and sensing), high power fibre lasers and optical data storage using fs-laser inscription in glass, we are seeking outstanding researchers to join our world-leading research centre to fill a number of posts.
Our researchers are focused on innovative solutions to real life problems across a broad range of industries. Using a multidisciplinary approach to combine science and engineering disciplines, our research institute provides an extremely fertile ground for discovery.
We are looking for early and mid-career research fellows with a PhD* or equivalent professional qualifications and experience in the field of Photonics, to join our vibrant research community and help us to shape the future. A primary requirement is an excellent track record in the field of Photonics, although experience in one or more of the following areas is also desirable:
Optical fibre fabrication
Optical fibre design and characterisation
Optical fibre communications/data communications
High power lasers
Sensing and metrology
Femtosecond lasers and laser-based materials processing
As a member of our team you will work with some of the best- known names in the field and take advantage of our £120M cleanroom complex which incorporates state-of-the-art optical fibre and integrated optics fabrication facilities, as well as a full silicon processing line and an extensive suite of biolabs.
The application deadline will be midnight on the closing date stated above. If you need any assistance, please call Suzanne Stone (Recruitment Team) on +44 (0) 23 8059 4043. Please quote reference 870417EH on all correspondence.
