Research Positions Available in Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering

Research Associate (Post-Doctoral Researcher) Positions in Nonlinear and Quantum Silicon Photonics and Nanooptomechanics

Research Associate (Post-Doctoral Researcher) positions are available on a number of exciting projects related to nanophotonics at the University of Colorado-Boulder, with immediate start date.

Opening 1: Optomechanics - We work in a new, burgeoning field of research emerging at the interface of nanophotonics and nanomechanics, and their interaction through light forces at the nanoscale. We are exploiting this novel physics for device innovation including self-adaptive nanophotonic devices, light-force based nanomotors and devices exploiting nonlinear dynamics, and novel photonic signal processing concepts. The position will include leading an effort on design and demonstration of novel chip-scale photonic circuit concepts that employ optical forces, and optical nonlinearity; and mentoring graduate students collaborating on the effort. The successful candidate will have a PhD in electrical engineering or related field, experience in some or all of silicon and/or integrated photonics theory, design and nanofabrication; NEMS/nanomechanics; electrodynamics and quantum theory. Advanced nanofabrication skills are a plus.

Opening 2: Nonlinear and quantum integrated photonics - A candidate is sought to join an effort to engineer advanced new photonic systems employing nonlinear effects and advanced nanofabrications, and to design novel quantum photonic devices from first principles. You will join a major effort to demonstrate a new device technology for classical and quantum communication and computation, metrology, and interconnects. The successful candidate will have a PhD in electrical engineering or related field, strong training in some or all of theoretical and experimental quantum optics, nonlinear optics, silicon photonics theory and design, and nanofabrication. Additional strengths may include familiarity with numerical simulations (FDTD, Comsol, etc.), low-temperature experiments and cryo-systems, and cold-atom physics.

Research Associate (Post-Doctoral Researcher) Position in Silicon Nanophotonics and CMOS Photonic Interconnects

A Research Associate (Post-Doctoral Researcher) position is available on an exciting project in silicon photonic integration with CMOS at the University of Colorado Boulder, with immediate start date. The project entails work on novel device concepts that will enable fundamental advances in energy efficiency of optical on-chip interconnects for computing, including future CPU and memory interfaces. We are bringing about the first family of photonic devices that are integrable in state-of-the-art CMOS and DRAM fabrication processes used in modern microelectronics. The position will include leading an effort on design of photonic and optoelectronic devices on an ambitious joint project within a multi-university team, experimental work on device characterization, and interaction with industry researchers. It will also include mentoring graduate students collaborating in this effort.

The successful candidate will have a strong background in integrated optics/silicon photonics through theoretical design, and modeling (FDTD, Matlab, etc.), and/or experimental work. Additional candidate strengths may include a solid foundation in electromagnetism and semiconductor physics, including solid state devices (MOSFETs, BJTs, solar cells, etc.), familiarity with CMOS processes, experience with numerical simulations, and/or experience with multiphysics and technology CAD ("TCAD") tools such as COMSOL and Sentaurus TCAD.
