Research Associate in Photonic Topological Insulator Modelling
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral research position funded by the Rising Star fellowship program at Cardiff University. The role will develop theoretical models for optical properties of 3D photonic topological insulators and perform numerical simulations to design and analyse photonic topological insulator devices fabricated by bottom-up fabrication approaches.
The envisioned research targets innovative 3D photonic topological insulator devices. Specific applications include photonic topological insulator lasers and topological quantum emitter arrays made of DNA origami through efficient communication links with local, international and industrial collaborations.
Qualifications and Experience
Candidates will have a PhD in Physics, Materials Science or closely-related subject focusing on numerical simulations and optical/mechanical modelling of 3D composite materials. Extensive and specific experience in optical/mechanical modelling on 3D photonic topological insulators and in-depth knowledge on Dirac/Weyl points and artificial gauge fields in 3D photonic topological insulators are essential. You will have a strong research record demonstrated through publications in high quality academic journals and high-impact conferences; experience participating in research proposals and research/industry-based groups with proven ability to network effectively with academics and outside academia.
Please submit with your completed application, your full CV and a statement of research interests and career goals (2 pages max).
For informal enquiries, please email Dr Sang Soon Oh on OhS2@cardiff.ac.uk or Professor Diana Huffaker on email@example.com.
