Postdoc: Nonlinear Nearfield Imaging of 2D Materials

Danmarks Tekniske Universitet (DTU)

Ph.d. & forskning

Frist 1. oktober 2017

DTU Fotonik, the Department of Photonics Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark, is seeking a candidate for a two-year postdoc position in near-field imaging of 2D materials with femtosecond lasers. The project is part of the Center of Excellence for Nanostructured Graphene (CNG), and will be performed in a collaborative environment with world-leading fabrication, theory, and experimental facilities.

Responsibilities and tasks
The successful candidate will be responsible for development and application of tip-based nearfield optical microscopy in the deep subwavelength regime, with the primary focus on ultrafast measurements with coherent broadband pulses of terahertz (THz) radiation. We are particularly interested in conductivity phenomena in nanostructured 2D materials, with special emphasis on ultrafast dynamics, nonlinear response, and plasmonic effects, spanning from the THz to the mid-infrared regime.

Competencies within the following areas will be considered favorable:

  • Experience with femtosecond laser systems
  • Experience with THz time-domain spectroscopy
  • Experience with near-field imaging
  • International experience with collaborative projects

The successful candidate has a PhD degree in experimental physics or photonics or a relevant, related field.

In the assessment of the candidates, consideration will be given to

  • scientific production and research potential at international level,
  • strong experimental skills and good theoretical skills,
  • innovative skills and the ability to generate new ideas, and
  • the ability to communicate at all levels.

We offer
We offer an interesting and challenging job in an international environment focusing on education, research, scientific advice and innovation, which contribute to enhancing the economy and improving social welfare. We strive for academic excellence, collegial respect and freedom tempered by responsibility. The Technical University of Denmark (DTU) is a leading technical university in northern Europe and benchmarks with the best universities in the world.

Salary and terms of employment
The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed with the relevant union. The period of employment is 2 years.

The workplace is DTU Fotonik, Lyngby Campus.

Further information
Further information may be obtained from Professor Peter Uhd Jepsen, e-mail: , or Associate Professor Nicolas Stenger, email: .
