Postdoctoral Opportunities in Nanophotonics, Quantum Science and Plasmonic Biosensors!

We're thrilled to announce multiple Postdoctoral Fellow Positions in the research group led by Professor Maiken H. Mikkelsen at Duke University. We're seeking dynamic, innovative individuals with a PhD in physics, electrical engineering, materials science, biomedical engineering, chemistry, or a related field.

About the Positions:

Nanophotonics and Metasurfaces

As a postdoctoral researcher in this role, you'll have the opportunity to perform experiments and contribute to the development of advanced nanophotonic structures or metasurfaces. If you have expertise in one or more of the following areas, ultrafast optics, nanophotonics, metamaterials, novel photodetectors, multispectral imaging, or advanced nanofabrication, we want you on our team. In this role, you'll design and perform optical experiments, conduct data analysis, and mentor graduate and undergraduate research assistants.

Quantum Science

As a postdoctoral researcher in this role, you'll perform quantum optics experiments on nanophotonic structures or study emerging defect centers in the solid state for quantum information science. If you have expertise in one or more of the following areas, ultrafast optics, time-correlated single photon statistics, single photon sources, pump-probe experiments, low-temperature experiments, two-dimensional materials, or nonlinear optical phenomena, we want you on our team. In this role, you'll design and perform optical experiments, conduct data analysis, and mentor graduate and undergraduate research assistants.

Plasmonic Biosensors

As a postdoctoral researcher in this role, you'll be involved in experimental studies of plasmonic, point-of-care biosensors. If you have expertise in one or more of the following areas, biosensors, microfluidics, fluorescence imaging, nanophotonics or plasmonics, we want you on our team. In this role, you'll design and perform optical experiments, conduct data analysis, and mentor graduate and undergraduate research assistants.
