Postdoctoral position in “Strong coupling between excitons and photons (Theoretical)” - [ Postdoc ]

Workplace: Genova, IIT
Added on: 07/03/2019 - Expires on: 31/03/2019

Fondazione Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia is offering a Post-doc position in the field of opto/electrical simulations. In particular, the successful candidate will work in the field of Strong Coupling between excitons and photons, especially oriented towards the “Design of micro/nano-devices for enhanced strong coupling”. Furthermore, the successful candidate is expected to actively work in other fields according to the lab requirements.

Applicants must have a PhD in Physics, Mathematics, Nanotechnology or similar discipline with at least 3 years of experience in simulation oriented research. In particular, knowledge of a numerical system based on the FEniCS platform or, alternatively, knowledge of FEM or FIT techniques is mandatory. Furthermore, a background in electromagnetism and/or electric transport is required. The successful candidate will work in close contact with experimentalists with the final aim to fabricate and validate the designed structure. In this sense, even a slight background experience in nanofabrication is preferable (but not mandatory). In this respect, team-work attitude will be seriously evaluated.

Applications, including a research statement, detailed curriculum vitae and names/contacts of at least 2 referees, should be submitted in PDF format to: Remo Proietti Zaccaria ( quoting “Postdoctoral position in “Strong coupling between excitons and photons (Theoretical) CB IITLF64” in the subject line.
