The Department of Physics at the University of Exeter invites applications to fill a Postdoctoral Research Fellow position in quantum optics and condensed matter theory. The appointment is for 2.5 years, expected to start in July 2021. The post is sponsored by the EPSRC project “Quantum nonlinear optics with 2D materials”, and successful applicant will work with the group of Dr. Oleksandr Kyriienko in Exeter, UK.

Research topics include strong light-matter interaction, polaritons, two-dimensional semiconductor materials, single photon effects, and optomechanics. We will develop theoretical proposal to enhance nonlinear optical effects with monolayer materials, with the ultimate goal to establish quantum polaritonics.

The applicant will possess a PhD in theoretical condensed matter, semiconductor physics or optics, and previous research experience (analytical and/or computational) in the relevant areas. The successful applicant will also be able to work collaboratively, supervise the work of others and act as team leader as needed. The ability to work in virtual environment is required if starting the job remotely.

Candidates are invited to submit a CV, and a brief description of research interests through AcademicJobsOnline. Applicants should also arrange for 2 reference letters to be submitted through AcademicJobsOnline.

The deadline for applications is March 15, 2021. Interviews are expected to take place on 25th March 2021.

For further information please contact Dr. Oleksandr Kyriienko directly via e-mail at
