Postdoctoral Scholar in Applied Physics
Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts
Date Posted 04/22/2021
Admin-Other Administrative Positions
Employment Type
Application Deadline Open until filled

Title Postdoctoral Scholar in Applied Physics
School Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences
Department/Area Applied Physics
Position Description

Metasurfaces – subwavelength arrays of phase shifting elements – have emerged as a new tool for polarization optics. In particular, metasurface gratings can be used to simplify the optical architectures of polarimeters for a variety of scientific remote sensing applications. A postdoctoral scholar is sought to investigate the application and feasibility of metasurfaces to polarimetric imaging in support of two NASA-funded programs. The candidate will join a team of other postdoctoral scholars to mature this new polarimetric capability in collaboration with industry and NASA partners. The position presents an opportunity to study an early-stage nanophotonic technology from device-level physics to system-level optical design considerations and, ultimately, the scientific areas served.

Basic Qualifications

Ph.D. in optics, applied physics, physics, electrical engineering, or a related discipline

Additional Qualifications

Proficiency in laboratory optics. Previous experience in nanophotonics and cleanroom fabrication would be beneficial, but is not strictly required. History of work in polarization and optical polarimetry desirable.

Special Instructions

Please submit a current CV with publications listed, as well as a minimum of two reference letters.
