Position: Research Fellow in O-band monolithic QD SOA on silicon (EPSRC New Investigator Award)
Institution: University College London
Department: Electronic & Electrical Engineering
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The successful candidate will participate in the research grant of the EPSRC New Investigator Award. The project is a collaboration with Rockley Photonics, Compound Semiconductor Centre, CEA-Leti, EPSRC Future Compound Semiconductor Manufacturing Hub and the University of Glasgow. The work will involve advanced photonics devices design, fabrication and characterisation of III-V compound semiconductor devices. The postholder will also be expected to provide supervision and training for undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as publishing the research outcomes in leading journals in the field and at conferences. They will also be expected to regularly communicate and work in close collaboration with the post supervisor and national and international collaborators as well as interact with other researchers working on the project. The successful candidate will also be expected to contribute to the preparation of reports and the presentation of results at progress meetings
Requirements: Applicants should hold a PhD degree (or be about to submit ) in a relevant subject area of physical sciences or engineering. An undergraduate degree in theoretical physics, applied mathematics, materials sciences or electrical engineering is also required. Strong compound semiconductor device fabrication experience is essential as is the ability to analyse and write up data in the form of journal papers and reports. An in-depth knowledge of the mechanism of QD laser is desirable
