Employment Opportunity

Post Doctoral Fellow

Quantum Interface Laboratory, Graduate School at Toyota Technological Institute has an opening for a Post-doctoral Research Fellow to work on MBE growth of quantum nanostructures, their interface control and optoelectronic studies. Our present focus lies in InAs-based structures: photon upconversion via quantum well islands, long wavelength photon emission by InAs quantum dots, or strain control of InGaAs, and luminescing colloidal semiconductor nanoparticles. Outstanding candidates who can pursue research in one or more of the above are sought. A Ph.D degree and experience in a related field is required, epitaxial growth in particular.
