Pendar Technologies (www.pendar.com) has an exciting opportunity for a Laser Scientist to join our Quantum Cascade Laser team. The Laser Scientist will work on the development of semiconductor optoelectronic devices including DFB and high-power quantum cascade lasers (QCLs), from proof-of-concept prototyping all the way through final manufacturing. Familiarity with existing commercial photonic software tools is expected, as well as the ability to develop software models to simulate the performance of new designs. This laser scientist will be involved in all development steps, including design, fabrication and characterization of the devices.
Furthermore, the scientist is expected to be involved with the writing of proposals and reports to various US government agencies. Eventually, the candidate will independently lead government projects as a Principle Investigator.
The applicant will join an interdisciplinary program housed in the Physics and Astronomy Department. We have a wide range of disciplinary expertise, ranging from astrophysics to geophysics, quantum field theory, theoretical and experimental optics, engineering photonics and physical chemistry. We value independence and self-reliance, teamwork and collegiality. We are looking for an energetic person who can bring their contribution to further academic growth of the department and the photonics program.
The Photonics program at Stonehill College invites applicants for a lab manager position, applications will close on January 15, or as soon as the position is filled.
Following are the current openings in the department.

Lincoln Laboratory has an opening for a U.S.-citizen Ph.D. student or working professional who has experience in the development of electronic-photonic integrated circuits and subsystems. The person in this position will be involved in design and test of PICs and electronic-photonic subsystems using a combination of internal and external resources.
The potential candidate is expected to contribute in one or more of the following areas of research: i) the design, simulation, and analysis of infrared semiconductor lasers, frequency combs, and photodetectors; ii) the modeling of nanoscale fields in subwavelength optical resonators and photonic-crystal cavities; (iii) the modeling of molecular vibrational resonances that are strongly coupled to optical cavities; and (iv) photonic integrated circuits that combine multiple midwave infrared components on the same silicon or III-V platform.
