The Quantum Nano-Optoelectronics research group, led by Prof. Dr. Frank Koppens, at ICFO is offering a research engineer position to a well-qualified, highly motivated, ambitious and dynamic engineer who wishes to enhance his/her career in a friendly and stimulating environment.

The candidate will work on the fabrication and prototyping of graphene-based opto-electronic applications such as photodetectors and optical modulators. In particular, the candidate will have the opportunity to participate in the Graphene Flagship program, which is the largest European research project ever created, aiming to bring graphene-based applications to the market. The candidate will participate actively in international collaborations including strong interactions with industrial partners.

What we offer:

The candidate will be part of a highly qualified, experienced, interdisciplinary and highly motivated international team that aims to translate graphene technology into application-relevant devices and prototype demonstrators, in collaboration with industries. Depending on the experience and personal interests, the candidate will have the opportunity to develop her/his career in the aforementioned areas, as well as to participate in conferences, industrial exhibits, publish and patent her/his results.

We offer a very comprehensive set of conditions that will be adapted in terms of salary to the experience of the candidate. The duration of the contract will be initially for one year, renewable for additional years depending on the performance of the candidate and the progress achieved.

Main duties:

The successful candidate will be responsible for the fabrication and characterization of the devices, integrating large-area CVD graphene with Si photonics and Si CMOS. This includes the transfer, patterning, contacting, as well as electrical and optical characterization and analysis.

Moreover, the candidate will participate in the prototype design and will be in continuous interaction with the industrial and academic collaborators.
