University of Southern California
Los Angeles, CA

The Armani Research Lab has an opening for a 2 year post-doctoral scholar appointment with a possibility of renewal in the field of integrated photonics.  The research will be performed in the newly opened $255M Michelson Center for Convergent Biosciences on the main USC campus with additional collaborative opportunities with the Ellison Institute. The start date is flexible, but the preferred date is between January 2019 to August 2019. The key skills and background include: 1) nanofabrication methods for devices on Si wafers including etching (e.g. RIE), lithography (e.g. e-beam, photo), deposition (e.g. lift-off, metal evaporation),  2) integrated optical device design and implementation (e.g. on/off chip coupling for waveguides, EM modeling), and 3) test and measurement experience (e.g. optical loss, electron microscopy imaging of devices). Additional skills of interest: Experience with devices fabricated from non-conventional optical materials and/or experience with biological systems. Interested applicants should email their CV to Prof. Armani ( with subject line: Post-doc Opening. In the body of the email, please include 200word max answers to the following: 1) motivation for pursuing a post-doc position, 2) interest in this area of research/topic, 3) summary of key relevant skills, and 4) potential tentative start date and possible hurdles (e.g. need to defend, other post-doc ending).

Sandia National Laboratories
Albuquerque, NM

At Sandia's National Security Photonics Center, 60+ research staff, plus students and postdocs, perform ground-breaking photonics research, providing pathfinder solutions for challenging problems in applications such as optical interconnect, energy harvesting, infrared imaging, quantum communication, sensing, and information systems, RF signal processing, LIDAR, photovoltaics, diode lasers, etc.

Worcester Polytechnic Institute
Worcester, MA

Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) is inviting applications for a tenure track faculty position in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Assistant Professor level.

The position is in support of WPI’s activity in the National Network for Manufacturing Innovation (NNMI) Initiative with applicability to integrated sensing (including photonic, biological, and chemical sensors) for distributed applications such as healthcare and intelligent systems, as well as smart world applications in energy and sustainability. Since all these application areas involve extracting information from large quantities of data in real time, it will also advantageous for the candidate to have a capability in artificial intelligence and/or machine learning.

Bridgewater State University
Bridgewater, MA

The Department of Physics at Bridgewater State University (BSU) invites applications for a tenure track assistant professor position beginning September 2019. The department is seeking an outstanding Engineer with expertise in Photonics including PIC Design and Characterization. The successful candidate will bring novel perspectives and insights to undergraduate students through teaching, advising and undergraduate research and support the development of a new degree programs in Photonics Engineering including certificate and B.S. degrees. The candidate will work in the new Department of Physics and Photonics Engineering that builds on the highly successful Department of Physics at BSU. The department has broad and expanding breath of theoretical and experimental based courses with research lab spaces housed in the $98M Dana Mohler-Faria Science Building. Physics at BSU has been recognized nationally for its strong number of majors (approximately 60) and graduates (average 8-10 per year). These numbers reflect a strong student-workforce development history with ties to Photonics/Optics related industries, top graduate schools (recently for biophysics, particle physics, astronomy and general relativity) and our tradition for training high school teachers. With the addition of the new Photonics Engineering program numbers of students, and new paths and opportunities for our graduates are expected to increase. The Department has strong connections and collaborations with AIM Photonics and the region’s AIM Photonics LEAP Academies. The successful candidate will be expected to continue to foster those connections and utilize them in their scholarship and work with students.
