Ph.D PhD Fellowship in Nonlinear Nanoplasmonics

at Dalhousie University in Canada

Two Ph.D. positions in nonlinear nanoplasmonics

Based in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, Dalhousie University, Canada. Research in the interdisciplinary fields of nonlinear nanophotonics, nanoplasmonics and biophotonics.

The successful applicants will be involved in experimental study of linear and nonlinear optical properties of metal nanostructures using near-field scanning optical microscope (NSOM), optimization of composition/structure for enhancing optical nonlinearities, metal surface functionalization for developing biomedical interfaces for therapeutic and diagnostic purposes, ultrafast optical measurements with fs lasers, and theoretical modeling of linear and nonlinear properties of metal nanostructures.

The potential candidates are expected to have a solid background in optics, photonics, and nanotechnology; excellent experimental skills and willingness to pursue numerical modeling are required, some aptitude for theoretical analysis is a plus.

The work will require a close cross-departmental (electrical engineering, physics, chemistry, biology) as well as inter-institutional collaboration. Personal skills: we seek highly motivated, well-organized and creative individuals, capable of working under minimal supervision whenever required. A very competitive scholarship is offered.
