Postdoctoral position in experimental nanophotonics – USA

Postdoctoral position available for research at the intersection of integrated microphotonics and optical trapping.

Skills wanted:
• microfabrication experience, including recipe development in clean room
• experimental optics experience, including construction of optical characterization setups and experience with optical trapping
• PhD in Physics, Electrical Engineering, or closely related subject
Our group:
• new group started in Fall 2008, with 4 PhD students
• strong interplay between theory/simulation, microfabrication, and optical characterization.
• strong interaction and cooperation between group members and PI.
• frequent interaction with other groups at USC, including photonics groups and users of shared clean room.

Start date: flexible

To apply: Contact Professor Michelle Povinelli, Send a cover letter and a copy of your CV.

The Nanophotonics Group is led by Professor Michelle Povinelli. We are part of the Ming Hsieh Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Southern California. We investigate the interaction of light with nanostructured materials, including photonic crystals, microresonators, metamaterials, and nanowire devices.
