A postdoctoral position in the field of theoretical/numerical nanophotonics and nonlinear optics is available in the group of Prof. Natalia M. Litchinitser at Duke University. We are seeking a bright, highly motivated candidate with a PhD degree in optical physics, electrical engineering or closely related field.

The postdoctoral researcher will be involved in the theoretical studies of linear and nonlinear  interactions of light beams with spin and orbital angular momentum in complex engineered media, topological photonic structures and supersymmetry in optics. The postdoc will be expected to develop their own codes, use commercial software (COMSOL, Lumerical, CST), interact with experimentalists in the group to include the feedback from experimental measurements and nanofabrication constraints into the developed models.

The candidate should have an excellent knowledge in electromagnetic theory, nonlinear optics, analytical approaches, and numerical modelling. Prior experience in working with experimentalists is a plus.
