Complex Nanophotonics Science Camp

The 4th Complex Nanophotonics Science Camp, organized by Jacopo Bertolotti, Paloma Huidobro, Giorgio Volpe and Kevin Vynck, will be held on 11-14 August 2019 in the Cumberland Lodge in Windsor Great Park, near London. The Science Camp brings together about 60 early-career scientists working at the interface between photonics and complexity – but also journal editors, grant panellists, and industrial representatives. Abstract submission is open until March 15 2019.

Postdoc position

1+1+1 years, salary: $45,000-$50,000 per annum, depending on skills and experience.
Applications are invited for the above post to work with Prof. Tsampikos Kottos (Wesleyan University) on a project entitled ”Advanced Symmetry Concepts and their Violation in Composite Photonic Structures”. The project will advance the notion of spatiotemporal symmetries in photonic structures for the development of a new generation of non-reciprocal devices (isolators, circulators) and power/fluence limiters (i.e. optical — up to microwave — filters that protect sensitive sensors from high-power/fluence incident radiation). A good knowledge of transport theory and theoretical/computational wave modelling is essential. In addition, a background in more than one of the following techniques is highly desirable: Landauer/Buttiker scattering formalism, transfer matrix formalism, Floquet scattering theory, COMSOL multiphysics. Candidates should be confident, organised, have good communication skills and enjoy working as part of a team as well as independently. The successful candidate will be expected to mentor younger co-workers, contribute to the publication of scientific papers, and to their dissemination at conferences.

Postdoc position

A 18-months postdoctoral position at Institut d’Electronique et des Télécommunications de Rennes dealing with the cross-correlation of diffuse electromagnetic fields in reveberation chambers and starting between november 2018 and March 2019.
