Postdoc in Experimental Quantum Metasurfaces
University of Southern Denmark
The Centre for Nano Optics ( at the University of Southern Denmark seeks a suitable candidate as a Postdoc Fellow within the area of Experimental Quantum Metasurfaces. The proposed project is concerned with experimental investigations and theoretical studies of possibilities for the realization of quantum metasurfaces implemented by integrating quantum emitters based on nano-diamonds containing color centers with optical metasurfaces, with the overall goal being to generate and manipulate compact and high-performance quantum sources at room temperature.

The project goals include the development of analytical approaches, computational tools, and experimental (fabrication and characterization) techniques for the realization of quantum metasurfaces implemented with optical metasurfaces integrated with nano-diamonds containing color centers as well as the contribution to further progress in the understanding of physical mechanisms involved in nanoscale light-matter interactions at the single-photon level. The overarching goal is to realize fast compact and efficient quantum sources at room temperature, enabling the efficient on-demand generation of single photons with arbitrary wavefronts and the realization of robust on-chip sources of entangled photons.

Postdoc position in chiral integrated photonics
Universitat Politecnica de Valencia (Nanophotonics Technology Center)
Separating enantiomers is crucial to producing bioactive molecules, e.g., in early-phase drug discovery. The present solution of chiral chromatography for this USD multi-billion market is slow and cumbersome since it requires tailored chemistry for each chiral compound, and relies on large and expensive separation columns. The EU Pathfinder project CHIRALFORCE aims at a radically new strategy to separate enantiomers on photonic chips: using optical forces in chiral silicon-based integrated waveguides.
We offer a 3-years post-doctoral position at the Nanophotonics Technology Center ( to work in the design, fabrication, and characterization of chiral circuits in silicon-photonics integrated technology. The final goals are the observation of chiral optical forces exerted by such circuits on nanoparticles and molecules in liquid environments and separating enantiomers via optical forces on a chip. Research activities will be performed within a European project and in collaboration with different European institutes, universities, and companies.
The candidates must have a PhD in one of these topics: photonic integrated circuits, chiral optics, molecular nanophotonics. They must show extensive expertise in design and optical characterization. Experience in clean-room nanofabrication will be also considered.

Postdoc / Research Scientist on Programmable Microwave Metamaterials at CNRS in Rennes
We seek prospective candidates for postdoc or research scientist positions with a strong background in wave physics (EM, photonics, acoustics), electrical engineering, applied math, or signal processing.

The research topics are in the area of programmable microwave metamaterials for applications in wireless communications, analog wave-based computing, and intelligent imaging.

Prospective candidates should directly contact me at to inquire about detailed opportunities.

Goethe-University Frankfurt
Coherent THz Emission from an Array of Resonant Tunneling Diodes (RTDs)
City University of Hong Kong
Work on theory of nanophotonics/angular momentum/singular optics/non-Hermitian optics
PhD position in Experimental Physics
Umeå University
We are looking for a PhD candidate interested in developing a state-of-the art ultrafast vibrational spectroscopy system to uncover the structure, and consequently the function, of molecular entities controlling key life processes inside our cells. The PhD project interfaces three rich fields of research: ultrafast science, optics and structural biology. The overarching goal is to measure correlations between coherent vibrations in organic molecular systems. This approach, while technically challenging, could bring the highest degree of biomolecular specificity.

The primary field of study for the PhD candidate will be to develop an experimental setup that will combine the generation of ultrabroadband pulses in the MIR spectral region (from 2.5 to 15 μm wavelength) with their coherent superposition for two-dimensional mid-infrared time domain spectroscopy (2D-MIR TDS). This system will be coupled to a home-made mid-IR microscope that will add spatial resolution. Finally, we will apply our broadband MIR pulses to detect relevant biomolecules (e.g., proteins such as the transcription factor GCN4, or the neurodegenerative biomarkers α-synuclein) in the so called “molecular finger-print region”.

This project is a part of a collaborative effort between Uppsala University (Sweden), Umeå University (Sweden), the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (Germany), the National Research Council (Italy), CIC biomaGUNE (Spain), the University of Padova (Italy) and the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (France), and is funded by the European Innovation Council through the Pathfinder project ‘iSenseDNA’. Within this project, the research group at Umeå University aim to develop an ultrafast pump-probe system to perform 2D-MIR TDS for the detection of vibrational signatures of molecular systems and recognize structural changes with an extreme spatial, spectral, and temporal sensitivity.
