University of Leeds-Research Fellow in Terahertz Photonics
Location: Leeds - Main Campus
Faculty/Service: Faculty of Engineering
Section: Institute of Microwaves and Photonics
Contract Type: Fixed Term (36 months)
You will join an established terahertz research team to develop and exploit ultrafast (terahertz frequency / picosecond timescale) techniques to investigate the transduction of acoustic waves into pulsed terahertz frequency range electromagnetic signals. You will engage in a wide ranging programme of experimental research and be expected to write high quality articles in primary archival journals based on your results.
You should hold, or shortly expect to obtain, a PhD in Physics, Electronic Engineering or a related discipline. Experience is required in picosecond / THz measurement techniques, and experience in optical lithography of semiconductor devices is highly desirable. A good track record of publications and a proven ability to integrate into research teams is also highly desirable.
‘The University of Leeds’ commitment to women in science has been recognised with a national accolade. The University and the Faculty of Engineering have received the Athena SWAN Bronze Award in recognition of our success in recruiting, retaining and developing/promoting women in Science, Engineering and Technology (SET).’
The University offers generous terms and conditions of employment, a wide range of benefits, services, facilities and family friendly policies. Full details are available on the Human Resources web pages accessible at www.leeds.ac.uk/hr/index.htm
