The candidate will have an excellent working knowledge of optoelectronic and photonic devices, including in the III-V material system. We are seeking a candidate with expertise in the full suite of semiconductor design, fabrication, characterization, and data analysis, as well as an understanding of system applications that drive the need for such devices. The candidate will make leading contributions to on-going and future research and development programs, as well as provide input into the overall strategic direction of the effort. This candidate will be involved in the inception, design, fabrication and characterization of novel photonic devices and systems.
The position will be part of a close-knit team of applied physicists and engineers working on leading-edge R&D projects to realize proof-of-concept demonstrations for our government and commercial customers. The activity will be very hands-on, operating over a variety of projects that involve the development and characterization of photonic devices intended to enable future system solutions across a variety of domains, including NIR-SWIR photodetection/imaging, RF-photonics, novel sensing, high-bandwidth chip-to-chip datalinks, quantum information sciences and advanced PNT applications.
The successful applicant will contribute to on-going efforts as well as develop new research thrusts. The candidate should have an ability and desire to develop new research concepts through direct interactions with potential customers both in and outside their area of academic expertise and a desire to turn such concepts into new program initiatives for which the candidate will be a principal investigator.
The candidate should have strong technical knowledge in:
Expected degree: PhD in Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics, Material Science or equivalent, with post-degree experience a plus
