The Yan Research Group at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is seeking a postdoctoral scholar in the area of nanophotonics. The postdoctoral research will focus on developing new laser beam shaping techniques, designing and setting up customized optical systems, and conducting experiments on optical trapping and manipulation of nanoparticles and related electrodynamics simulations.
The candidate should have a Ph.D. degree in Physics, Optical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, or other related subjects, conferred within last four years or expected to obtain a PhD shortly. We are looking for motivated applicants with strong publications and writing skills, expertise in designing and conducting laser-based experiments (e.g., ultrafast laser spectroscopy), and ability to perform programming (e.g., Matlab or Labview) and simulations (e.g., COMSOL or Lumerical).
Interested candidates are encouraged to contact Dr. Yan (email@example.com). Please include a CV and some description of research interests.
