Additional information:

ENSEMBLE3 is a new Centre of Excellence for nanophotonics, advanced materials, and novel crystal growth-based technologies located in Warsaw, Poland, created jointly by institutions from Poland, Germany, Italy, and Spain. The centre will work on the development of novel material technologies and advanced materials with unique electromagnetic properties, with potential applications in fields such as photonics, optoelectronics, telecommunication, solar energy conversion, medicine, and aerospace.

European funding programmes:Yes

Applications are welcome from excellent scientists to join the Centre of Excellence to help the Centre to be at the forefront of scientific world along with their own career development. The candidate will be responsible for characterization of the optical/electromagnetic properties of the materials developed in the other groups at the micron and nanoscales. It will verify novel design concepts for materials, structures and devices in regard to their material properties and function as optical devices – in cooperation with the research groups present at the Centre. The candidate will use novel advanced techniques of materials characterization including systems working beyond the light diffraction limit. Proven extensive experience in scattering Scanning Nearfield Optical Microscopy (sSNOM) is a must. The optimal candidate will be scientist specialized in characterization of electromagnetic phenomena and their mechanisms including both macroscopic properties as well as the ones at the nanoscale.

Key responsibilities include:

• Organizing and carrying out research efforts that will place the centre at the forefront of scientific developments worldwide;
• Collaborating with other groups in the centre;
• Disseminating results to the public and scientific communities;
• Applying for funding;
• Seeking industrial collaborations.

We offer:

• Full-time employment;
• Opportunity to work in an innovative scientific environment;
• International cooperation with experienced researchers;
