Contract Type: Fixed term for two years
You will be based in the Semiconductor Materials and Devices group (SMD) in Sheffield and will carry out research into novel mid-infrared photonic devices and their manufacture in integrated photonic platforms. The focus will be on investigating a range of new materials and device concepts that will lead to the integration of technologies such as III-V sources, detectors, optical fibre, 2D materials and silicon/germanium photonic integrated circuits. The work is aimed at new applications in mid-infraed sensing and imaging and will address the manufacturing approaches to integrated devices as well as novel device and system concepts.
This post is funded by the EPSRC Future Photonics Manufacturing Hub (http://photonicshubuk.org), a major collaborative programme between the Universities of Sheffield and Southampton.
You will work closely with project partners in Southampton, epitaxy experts in the National Epitaxy Facility in Sheffield and industrial sponsors working with the Hub. The vision of the Hub is to play a leading role in driving innovation in photonics manufacturing by addressing major challenges in device and materials integration. The post holder will undertake high quality research in collaboration with leading researchers and industrial partners. She/he will be encouraged and supported to attend international conferences, and to publish research findings in learned society journals.
The Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering is respected internationally for the important contributions it makes in this field. It has the second highest research income in the UK in this subject area. We are a vibrant community of 46 academic staff, 70 research staff, 23 technical staff, 18 administrative staff and over 700 undergraduate and postgraduate students. The Department is organised into three research groups: Communications, Electrical Machines and Drives (EMD) and Semiconductor Materials and Devices (SMD). Further information about the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering is available at: www.shef.ac.uk/eee
We are seeking a candidate with a PhD in semiconductor photonic device development or equivalent experience in industry. A strong scientific background in semiconductors and semiconductor device design and fabrication, especially mid-infrared, is essential.
We’re one of the best not-for-profit organisations to work for in the UK. The University’s Total Reward Package includes a competitive salary, a generous Pension Scheme and annual leave entitlement, as well as access to a range of learning and development courses to support your personal and professional development.
We build teams of people from different heritages and lifestyles from across the world, whose talent and contributions complement each other to greatest effect. We believe diversity in all its forms delivers greater impact through research, teaching and student experience.
