University of Notre Dame, Quantum and Nonlinear Optoelectronics Group

Position ID:NotreDame-Quantum and Nonlinear Optoelectronics Group-PDA [#15412]
Position Title: Postdoctoral associate
Position Type:Postdoctoral
Position Location:Notre Dame, Indiana 46556, United States [map]
Subject Area: Electrical Engineering / Photonics
Appl Deadline:none (posted 2019/11/06)
Position Description:    

The Quantum and Nonlinear Optoelectronics Group, led by Professor David Burghoff at Notre Dame, is rapidly expanding and currently hiring new postdoctoral researchers. The group uses quantum and nonlinear optics to study the interaction of light and matter, and they then exploit these interactions to make devices that interact with the world in extraordinary new ways. They use nanoscale engineering to push beyond the limits of conventional electronics and photonics, and they seek to both perform basic science and use newly-discovered phenomena to create devices that address the world’s key challenges.

Currently, two projects have openings. In your cover letter, please indicate which project you are interested in pursuing:
1. Solitons in quantum cascade lasers: Use pulse shaping to make integrated sources of pulses in quantum cascade lasers, which will be the first completely on-chip sources of pulsed terahertz light.
2. Long-wavelength quantum sources: Use spontaneous four-wave mixing to generate entangled photons in the mid-infrared and terahertz, with the end goal of doing quantum optics in these regimes.

If you are interested in doing research in this exciting field, please upload the contacts of at least 1 reference (including your Ph.D. supervisor), your CV/resume (including all of your publications), and a cover letter that explains why you are applying for the position and what your career goals are.

About the PI: Dr. Burghoff began as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Notre Dame in 2018. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, his master’s from MIT, and his bachelor’s from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His awards include the AFOSR Young Investigator Program (YIP) award, MIT’s Best Electrical Engineering Ph.D. Thesis, and the Intelligence Community Postdoctoral Fellowship.
