The Department of Physics invites applications for a Postdoctoral Scholar in Nonlinear and Ultrafast Nanophotonics. The applicant will work in the research group of Professor Appavoo to conduct advanced nonlinear microscopy of photonic nanostructures. The main objective is to understand and control their ultrafast dynamics for applications in the energy and sensing technology. The Postdoctoral Scholar will have the opportunity to work closely with scientists at Brookhaven National Laboratory (New York) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (Tennessee) during the fabrication of the nanophotonic systems.  
More info about our team and newly built facilities in ultrafast spectroscopy can be found at Questions regarding research should be email to Prof. Appavoo at  

KEYWORDS: Nanophotonics; Metamaterials; Plasmonics; Ultrafast optical spectroscopy. 

Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled. Candidates should have research experience in optical spectroscopy of nanostructures such as metamaterials or plasmonics. Background in ultrafast multidimensional spectroscopy, nonlinear optics and/or nanofabrication will be an asset. 

Applicants should send their application to, including:

(1) Cover letter, 

(2) Curriculum vitae with full publication list,  

(3) Three names and email addresses of individuals familiar with the applicant qualifications.
