The Institute of Advanced Optics and Photonics at Hanbat National University (located in Daejeon, S. Korea) invites Postdoctoral Scholars to apply for the joint project “Topological Active Photonic Materials”. This project is in collaboration with the Materials Integration and Nanoscale Devices Group, Science and Technology department at IBM Research Zurich (https://www.zurich.ibm.com/st/ - located in Zurich, Switzerland), the post-doctoral Scholar will be located in Daejeon, but a close collaboration is planned with IBM researchers and secondments to the IBM Lab are planned during the project.
In this project we will work on the development of topological photonic lattices with the local integration of III-V gain material for direct emission into topological states. Daejeon will be mainly responsible for the theoretical framework and photonic design. The structures will be fabricated in the IBM lab, and subsequently both partners will be active in different aspects of optical device characterization.
The position is available starting on 1st of November 2019 or later. The position is a two-year contract with an option of extension up to the third year. The annual salary range is negotiable plus Hanbat National University benefits. Health, safety, employ insurances and national pension are covered by the institute.
During the project, the appointed postdoctoral scholar should stay at IBM Research Gmbh at Zurich one to three months for active collaboration.
Strong academic record with a background in physics or photonics. Knowledge of electromagnetics. Knowledge of quantum physics and solid-state physics is considered an asset.
Experience with simulation of quantum effects, photonics or topological physics.
Excellent communication skills and fluent English speaking/writing skills
Experience with optical characterization is a plus.
Interested scholars are encouraged to send a CV and if possible, references, to Prof. Chang-Won Lee (https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Chang-Won_Lee) via email email@example.com. Feel free to contact me regarding inquiries about the project.
Telecommuting is allowed.
