Postdoc in Hybrid Nanophotonics and Optoelectronics

We have opened three Postdoc positions in the Laboratory of Hybrid Nanophotonics and Optoelectronics at ITMO University (St. Petersburg, Russia), which is a leading and rapidly developing Russian university in the fields of photonics and optoelectronics.

We are looking for energetic, young (

The positions are offered in the following fields:

1) Nanophotonics of halide perovskites

The project is related to fundamental study of optical properties of various nanostructures made of halide perovskites, including quantum dots, 2D flakes, nanowires, as well as nanoantennas and metasurfaces. We will consider candidates with both experimental and theoretic focuses.

Requirements:

The candidates should have a solid background in nanophotonics, possessing expertise in nonlinear optics, nano-/microlasers, optics of excitons, or sensing, which should be supported by a strong publication track record.

2) Advanced fabrication of halide perovskite nanostructures

The project is related to the creation of novel nanostructures (quantum dots, 2D flakes, nanowires, as well as nanoantennas and metasurfaces) made of various halide perovskite materials, including hybrid perovskites, inorganic perovskites, chiral perovskites, lead-free perovskites, and double perovskites.

Requirements:

The candidates should have a solid background in material science, possessing expertise in chemistry, crystallography, or nanostructures fabrication, which should be supported by a strong publication track record.

3) Optoelectronic devices based on halide perovskites

The project is related to the creation of highly efficient and multifunctional optotelectronic devices based on halide perovskites. In particular, we aim to develop semitransparent flexible light-emitting solar cells for applications in building-integrated photovoltaics as well as in various advanced applications.

Requirements:

The candidates should have a solid background in experimental optoelectronics, possessing expertise in optoelectronics, material science, solid state physics, and engineering, which should be supported by a strong publication track record.

Benefits:

Apart from the high living standard in one of the most beautiful city of Europe (Saint Petersburg), the successful candidates will benefit from being a part of a very dynamic and efficient team of young researchers conducting cutting-edge nanophotonics and optoelectronic research and working in the vanguard of bringing nanophotonic concepts to the industry. They will be able to broaden their vision and understanding of state-of-the-art nanophotonics and optoelectronics. Due to the nature of our research, they will also learn about the existing industry demands and form an understanding of challenges related to introducing new concepts into real-world industrial applications. The candidates should be available for short-term internships at the laboratories of our international partners in the US, Europe and Asia.

Conditions:

The positions offered are planned to span at least 4+3 years with annual progress evaluation and possible further prolongation for exceptional candidates. Salary is strongly dependent on each individual candidate’s qualifications, but will still be at least 2 times higher than the average level for St. Petersburg, with the city’s living expenses being 2-3 times smaller than those in Western Europe and the US.

Application:

We look forward to receiving your online application, which should include a detailed CV, a list of publications, a statement of research interests containing a short description of your background, motivation and skills, and the names of three contacts for references. Evaluation of applications is to begin immediately and will continue until we have filled the positions in question.

Additional information:

The positions are supported by the Russian Science Foundation.
