Research Associate in III-nitride nano-lasers

University of Sheffield

Sheffield, United Kingdom


The post holder will work closely with another UK University in order to achieve III-nitride electrically injected nanolasers in the visible spectral region with ultra-low threshold current density for further complex photonic integrated circuits. You will need to prepare and present results regularly, and will help to co-ordinate progress meetings. You will need to publish articles in high-profile journals, attend project progress meetings and present results at international/domestic conferences.

Candidates are sought who have a strong scientific background in III-nitride based semiconductor physics and fundamental semiconductor physics, with a PhD in semiconductor nano-device fabrication or equivalent experience. Significant experience in advanced fabrication of III-nitride laser diodes and advanced device characterisation of III-nitride laser diodes is essential.

Job Description
Main Duties and Responsibilities
 Develop novel nanofabrication approaches and design novel III-nitride nano-laser structures in order to achieve high performance III-nitride based nano-lasers.
 Develop a full process from mask design, through nanofabrication, to final device testing.
 Develop a full nanofabrication process using a non-standard lithography approach.
 Work very closely with MOVPE epitaxial growers.
 Produce monthly technical reports.
 Help to co-ordinate, and attend progress meetings; report progress through monthly conference calls and quarterly meetings with the collaborators.
 Regularly communicate with and visit the collaborators.
 Write and deliver papers for high-quality journals and/or for presentations at national/international conferences.
 Analyse and record data to aid the design of future research and produce useful findings for others.
 Maintain a systematic record of scientific outcomes.
 Plan several months in advance to meet deadlines for journal publications and to prepare presentations and papers for conferences.
 Any other duties, commensurate with the grade of the post.
