Within an Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) funded project, the School of Physics and Astronomy at Cardiff University is seeking to appoint a research associate in the area of coherent non-linear optical spectroscopy and quantum optics of semiconductor nanophotonic devices. The research scientist will explore the controlled coherent coupling between epitaxial semiconductor quantum dots embedded in planar photonic crystal cavities and waveguides, a building block for applications in quantum computing. The research will be carried out in the group of Prof. Wolfgang Langbein, and Dr. Egor Muljarov, as part of a team encompassing two research associates and two PhD students, embedded in a group of about 15 members, and in the environment of the condensed matter and photonics group encompassing 20 academics.
You will be a researcher with a track record of achievement in the fields of optical spectroscopy, quantum optics, ultrafast lasers, and semiconductor nanostructures demonstrated by publications in academic journals, international conference presentations, and/or industrial collaborations.
Please submit with your completed application form your full CV and a statement of research interests and career goals (2 pages max) addressing the criteria in the person specifications.
