sensing and imaging.

The successful candidate will specifically:
• Use COMSOL to study electromagnetic light propagation in dielectric stacks and
metasurfaces. (Multi-physics; Wave optics, RF modules)
• Use COMSOL to study time-dependent I-V characteristics of bulk and structured
photoconductors. (Multi-physics; AC-DC and semiconductor modules)
• Ability to use optical propagation freeware codes such as MEEP.
• Work closely with experimental physicists and engineers, and provide theoretical support.
• Write R&D-level proposals for optical materials and device technology advancements.
• Present R&D results at conferences and publish papers.

• Demonstrated experience in using COMSOL for optical, dielectric, electromagnetic, and
device simulations.
• Demonstrated experience in modeling nanostructured materials and metasurfaces.
• Knowledge of solid state fundamentals and optical, dielectric, electronic and transport
• Strong oral and written communication skills, strong organization skills with an attention
to detail, and excellent documentation capability.
• Advanced level computer skills in MS Office, Linux, MatLab, Python.
• Candidate should be enthusiastic and highly self-motivated.

• Doctoral degree in Physics, Materials Science, Optics, or relevant engineering discipline
• Citizen or permanent resident of the United States
