Postdoctoral Fellowship: Theory of Carrier Dynamics in Graphene
July 18, 2018
Contract - Experienced
Nonlinear Optics (OL)
Years of Experience:
Academia, Research Laboratory
Start Date and Duration: Full-time 1 year appointment to begin Fall 2018, with the possibility of renewal for an additional 0.5 years, contingent on agreement of the supervisor and funding availability. Review of applications will begin on August 15th, 2018.
The Dignam group is part of an NSERC Strategic Project on “Unravelling the terahertz electronic properties of graphene for applications in optoelectronics”. This work is being done in collaboration with the experimental groups of T. Ozaki (INRS), D. Cooke (McGill) and S. Sun (INRS). The postdoctoral fellow will be hired to further develop theoretical and computational models of the nonlinear response of monolayer and bilayer graphene to intense terahertz (THz) radiation. The successful candidate will be expected to interact with and help guide three or four PhD students and to help design and interpret new experiments on hot carrier dynamics in graphene. There may also be an opportunity to expand the scope of the research to include other 2D materials as well as topics in nonlinear quantum optics in dielectric nanocavity systems.

• Candidates must have obtained a PhD in physics, applied physics, or engineering with a specialization in theoretical condensed matter or nonlinear optics. • The successful candidate needs to demonstrate the ability to perform independent research as well as effectively communicate their results both verbally and in writing. • The ability to work as part of a team including both graduate and undergraduate students is required.
• Experience in the modelling carrier dynamics in semiconductors or metals, including the microscopic treatment of carrier scattering. • Proficiency in FORTRAN or C. • Proficiency in parallel computing.
