Postdoctoral Researcher in Nanoscale Engineering

University of Oxford

Oxford, South East England, United Kingdom

Salary: Grade 7: £32,236 - £39,609 p.a.

The Person

You will hold a PhD (or be close to completion) in a relevant subject area. You will possess a combination of scientific and technical skills that can help develop next generation technologies within the infrastructure constraints we have access to or can realistically build up. You will have exceptional initiative and the ability to work independently at the highest level, including a demonstrable ability to complete projects and manage your own area of academic research.

The Project

The Advanced Nanoscale Engineering Group is seeking highly motivated innovators and scientists to develop and lead new projects as postdoctoral researchers. The ability to think outside the box with creativity and having the drive and ambition to develop those ideas in a highly experimental laboratory is what we value in our colleagues. The right candidates will have the freedom to pursue their own ideas in addition to contributing to funded programs in an open and collaborative research group. You will be working to further research in either 1) the rapidly emerging area of Phase Change Photonics, especially in emerging non-von Neumann computing, a field in which we have made significant strides in recent years and/or 2) in emerging frontiers of nanomanufacturing, particularly additive nanomanufacturing.

All applications must be made online.

You will be required to upload a CV and a Supporting Statement as part of your application. Please do not attach any manuscripts, papers, transcripts, mark sheets or certificates as these will not be considered as part of your application.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 noon on 11 January 2019. Interviews are scheduled to take place at the Department of Materials in late January/early February 2019 and you must be available to attend either by Skype or in person.
