Postdoctoral position in dual-comb spectroscopy with microresonator combs

HR_Kollage_14_600x150px.jpg

Information about the project
An optical frequency comb is a laser source whose spectrum is made of evenly spaced and narrow frequency lines that maintain broadband phase coherence across the bandwidth. Microresonator frequency combs constitute an alternative platform to femtosecond mode-locked lasers for realizing frequency combs on a chip-scale platform. Their compactness, compatibility with standard semiconductor fabrication techniques and large (> 10 GHz) line spacing enable new opportunities in frequency synthesis and metrology: from advanced communications to radio-frequency photonics.

The overall aim of the project is to investigate the potential of a new class of coherent microresonator frequency combs, namely dark optical solitons (or dark pulse Kerr combs), in ultra-broadband near-infrared optical spectroscopy. The project is funded by the European Research Council with a Consolidator grant and we are seeking a postdoctoral fellow with strong expertise and outstanding track record in experimental ultrafast photonics.

The Photonics laboratory at the Microtechnology and Nanoscience Department (MC2) is a dynamic and creative group with about 30 members working in an international and collaborative atmosphere. We perform both curiosity-driven and applied-research in the areas of optoelectronics, nanophotonics, and fiber optic systems. We enjoy a state-of-the-art laboratory for ultrafast optical science and have access to in-house cleanroom facilities to manufacture our own nanophotonic structures.

Major responsibilities
As postdoctoral fellow, your main responsibilities are to lead and conduct research, and guide junior PhD students. You will have the freedom to contribute with your ideas, and collaborate with other senior researchers and professors.

The postdoctoral position is a full-time employment position limited to 2 years. We offer a competitive salary, excellent working conditions and access to world-class facilities and infrastructure. Starting date is negotiable.

Qualifications
You should have a PhD degree (or equivalent) in Applied Physics, Engineering Physics, Electrical Engineering or similar. You must have experience with supervision of junior students (PhD or Master). You must have solid experience with ultrafast laser systems (mode-locked lasers, fiber laser frequency combs, pulse characterization techniques, etc.), ideally with microresonator frequency combs. Knowledge of standard finite element solvers and computational techniques in nonlinear optics (generalized nonlinear Schrödinger equation, Lugiato-Lefever equation, etc.) is a plus.

Chalmers continuously strives to be an attractive employer. Equality and diversity are substantial foundations in all activities at Chalmers.

In addition to 200 researchers and PhD students, MC2 houses a cleanroom for micro- and nanofabrication with the latest equipment.

Information about the research and the research group
Quantum transport in nanostructures is a topic with a strong focus at Chalmers, involving several departments and research groups in theoretical as well as experimental physics. The research group in which the position is offered is part of the Applied Quantum Physics Laboratory at MC2 and is to a large extend financed within the Wallenberg Academy Fellows program and by the Swedish VR.

Postdoctoral position in Functional Programming


Information about the division

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering is a joint department between Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Gothenburg. The department has around 260 employees from over 30 countries. The research spans from theoretical foundations to applied systems development. We provide high
quality education at Bachelor’s, Master’s and graduate levels, offering over 120 courses each year. We also have extensive national and international collaborations with academia, industry, and society.

The Functional Programming group at Chalmers is world-class. It has long worked on property-based testing and on domain specific languages for hardware design and verification or for low level programming. The group also has an interest in testing and verification of machine learning algorithms. The role as postdoctoral researcher is to participate actively in research in domain specific languages and to cooperate with other researchers and doctoral students within the area. The successful candidate is also expected to generally contribute to the development of the Functional Programming Group. The ability to build links to other research groups at the department or elsewhere would be an advantage. Importantly, the postdoctoral researcher will be given ample time to develop his/her own research directions.

Major responsibilities
The postdoctoral researcher will carry out independent research on functional programming and on domain specific languages for programming field programmable gate arrays, GPUs or other novel architectures. He or she will work with Mary Sheeran and colleagues within the Functional Programming group and in the Information Security Group, including on the SSF funded Octopi project about secure programming of the Internet of Things.

Please find more information about our current research and active researchers within the groups via the following link: https://www.chalmers.se/en/departments/cse/research/Pages/research-projects.aspx

Position summary
The position provides full time employment for a maximum of two years. The major responsibility is research, but the position may include up to 20% teaching, depending on the department’s current teaching needs.

Qualifications
To qualify for the position of postdoctoral researcher, you must have a doctoral degree in computer science or a related field. To qualify for the specialist position of researcher, you should in addition have significant research experience and good pedagogical qualifications.

Competitive candidates are those who have a strong background in functional programming and domain specific languages. You should not only be a skilled researcher, but also an excellent programmer and software tool builder. We will pay particular attention to your ability to convey research ideas in writing and in presentations.

English is the working language for research and Masters level teaching at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. In this light, fluency in English is mandatory, while knowledge of Swedish is not required. However, Chalmers offers Swedish courses for those who are interested.

Chalmers continuously strives to be an attractive employer. Equality and diversity are substantial foundations in all activities at Chalmers.
