Two year post doc position in the development of PICs for early detection of sepsis.

Published Deadline Location
20 Mar 21 Apr Enschede

Job description

You will become part of a team working on the development of different material platforms for Integrated Photonics. In particular, this position deals with the development of photonic integrated circuits (PICs) for the early detection and monitoring of sepsis. Sepsis is a highly deadly, complex and fast evolving disease, the fast detection of which is key to determine the correct treatment for each patient. In this project, you will work with a team of different academic, clinical and industrial partners to develop and validate a sensor for the early detection of sepsis.

You will be working on the design of the photonic integrated circuits and of the readout module as well as close interaction with the different consortium partners.

Specifications

University of Twente (UT)

Requirements

  • PhD degree in engineering physics, electrical engineering, materials engineering/science or photonics engineering, with a strong background in the design of photonics integrated circuits.
  • Electronic design is also an asset, especially the design of readout modules.
  • Background in cleanroom microfabrication, deposition of optical materials, and design/simulation of optical and/or electronic devices is a plus.
  • You have a good team spirit and like to work in an interdisciplinary and internationally oriented environment.
  • Experimental experience in the optical characterization of integrated optical devices is also desirable
  • You have a creative mindset and excellent analytical and communication skills.
  • Female candidates and members of minority groups are equally encouraged to apply as we strive for working in a well-balanced inclusive team.
  • An excellent command of English.

Conditions of employment

  • A full-time position for two years, and the flexibility to work (partially) from home.
  • Your salary and associated conditions are in accordance with the collective labour agreement for Dutch universities (CAO-NU).
  • You will receive a gross monthly salary ranging from € 3.877,- to € 5.090,-
  • There are excellent benefits including a holiday allowance of 8% of the gross annual salary, an end-of-year bonus of 8.3%, and a solid pension scheme.
  • A minimum of 232 leave hours in case of full-time employment based on a formal workweek of 38 hours. A full-time employment in practice means 40 hours a week, therefore resulting in 96 extra leave hours on an annual basis.
  • Free access to sports facilities on campus.
  • A family-friendly institution that offers parental leave (both paid and unpaid).
  • Excellent career support and courses for your professional and personal development.

Department

The Integrated Optical Systems group consists in average of 6-7 PhD students, 2-3 MSc students, 2-3 post-docs and several staff members. Our vision is to develop novel materials, devices and integration technologies for Integrated Photonics to solve societal problems. We are part of the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology, which offers advanced characterization and fabrication tools at the nanoscale, as well as a stimulating scientific environment with more than 250 PhD students working on various aspects of nanoscience and technology.

In addition, we are part of a group of around 80 researchers that explore, within the research cluster Applied Nanophotonics (ANP), multiple aspects of modern photonics. These include technologies such as the development of materials, integration technologies, photonic assembly, packaging, and laser processing for applications including quantum optics, control of light scattering, photonics crystals, XUV optics, biomedical imaging, and sensing.
