PostDoc in Metal-Oxide Nanomaterials for Biophotonic Metasurfaces

The Optical Nanomaterial Group in the Physics Department of ETH Zurich, headed by Assistant Prof. Rachel Grange, is seeking in the area of hybrid metamaterials for biophotonic applications a highly motivated researcher as a
PostDoc in Metal-Oxide Nanomaterials for Biophotonic Metasurfaces
To overcome the disadvantage of losses in metallic structures, typically used for the fabrication of meta-atoms and metasurfaces, oxide nanomaterials, such as perovskites, are a promising alternative. Thus, such oxide-based nanomaterials may be seen as building blocks for the next generation of non-metallic or metal-oxide based metamaterials with additional nonlinear optical properties. Since we are working with chemically synthesized nanoparticles and nanostructured surfaces, both bottom up and top-down approaches are envisioned to obtain the desired combination of metal-oxide nanostructured surfaces.

The successful candidate should be highly motivated and creative, demonstrate an exceptional track record, have a background in physics, material sciences, optics, chemistry, or related fields, and be interested in working in an interdisciplinary environment at the interface of nanotechnology, photonics, and material science. Furthermore, the ideal skills needed for this project are in nanotechnology (cleanroom techniques, e.g. lithography, etching), nanophotonics (linear and nonlinear optics), surface and physical chemistry (detection of biomolecules), and the ability to work in a multidisciplinary team. The preferred starting date for this position is February 2016.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at
