Job #667894513

We are seeking a Postdoctoral Appointee to join the Applied Photonic Microsystems Department with an emphasis in silicon photonics technologies.

Responsibilities may include, but are not limited to:

Perform focused research in silicon photonics in simulation, design, and experimental characterization of devices.

Perform small-scale packaging of silicon photonics devices, sometimes co-packaged with electronic chips.

Suggest and implement improvements in device characterization techniques, device design, packaging, and fabrication techniques.

Report research results in top-tier journals and conferences.

Generate new intellectual property through patent filing as applicable.

Ability to obtain and maintain a Q Security Clearance.


PhD degree in Electrical Engineering, Optical Engineering, Science, Physics, or other related STEM technical area conferred within five years prior to employment.

Experience in the design and test of optical systems, optical materials or devices, or photonics microsystems.

Experience in developing or using software for device performance simulations using, for example, Comsol, Matlab/Simulink, FDTD codes etc.

Experience performing original research, demonstrated through a record of invention, original publications in top-tier journals, and conference papers and presentations.


Demonstrated expertise in integrated photonics (in particular, silicon photonics) simulation, design, and testing.

Experience in high speed characterization of devices, electrical probe stations, operation of high speed and high frequency test equipment, such as bit error rate test equipment, network analyzers, spectrum analyzers, and high-speed oscilloscopes. Additional experience automating characterization experiments is a plus.

Experience interfacing electrical components to optical microsystems; examples are modulator drivers, transimpedance amplifiers, and electronic control circuits.

Knowledge of semiconductor physics, optical materials, nonlinear optics, and/or related topics.

Ability and desire to work in a team environment and flexibility to work on multiple projects concurrently.

Active L or Q Clearance.
