Position Description:    

*** The account for Quantum and Nonlinear Optoelectronics Group, University of Texas at Austin has expired and new applications are no longer accepted. ***

The group of Dr. David Burghoff at the University of Notre Dame is currently seeking multiple postdoctoral researchers to conduct research in the area of semiconductor frequency combs and nonlinear optics, exploiting new physics to create unique sensing modalities. The lab has two newly-funded projects with openings, one that involves the creation of a new type of comb and another that involves the creation of a new sensing modality. For more information about the projects, please contact David Burghoff.

Preferred qualifications:
  • Ph.D. in electrical engineering, physics, materials science, or related areas
  • Hands-on experience in nanofabrication of semiconductor devices, especially in III-V devices. Experience in fabrication is ideal but not required.
  • Solid understanding of optoelectronics, solid-state device physics, and nonlinear optics.
  • Experience in developing and optimizing new fabrication processes. For more information on the group’s research, please visit
