Research Associate in III-Nitride Semiconductors and Devices

The post holder will work closely with a large number of collaborators from other universities and industrial partners in order to achieve integrated devices combining III-nitrides and other III-Vs on patterned substrates, where the advanced MOVPE growth, the fabrication of novel patterned substrates and the design and fabrication of the integrated devices will be the key elements. You will need to prepare and present results regularly, and will help to co-ordinate progress meetings. You will also need to publish articles in high-profile journals as well as attend project progress meetings and international/domestic conferences.

Candidates should have a strong scientific background in III-nitride based semiconductor physics, with a PhD (or be close to completion) in semiconductor materials and device fabrication (or have equivalent experience). Experience in optical and electronic device fabrication, in particular integrated devices, and skill in the fabrication of patterned substrates, are equally essential.

Closing date: 11th September. Find out more and submit application.
