A recent Ph.D. degree (completed no more than 5 years ago);
At least 2 Scopus/Web of Science publications in the last 1 year.
Postdocs are expected to contribute to the research held in the hosting Unit by active cooperation with its staff, writing and publishing articles on the topic of collaborative scientific work, and sharing their experience with students. By the end of the postdoctoral training the post-doctoral researcher is expected to pursue his independent research career.
ITMO University (St. Petersburg, Russia) offers positions of researcher at the International Research Center of Nanophotonics and Metamaterials, led by Professor Pavel Belov. Scientific groups of the Center specialize in the following directions:
dielectric and quantum nanophotonics
optical and microwave metamaterials and metasurfaces
meta-devices for MRI
wireless power transmission
We have strong cooperation with many acknowledged universities, including Texas University in Dallas, University of Utrecht, University of Aalto, University of Iceland, Nanyang Technological University, Australian National University within the framework of research and educational projects. The Research Center has won two mega-grants (a program to attract leading world scientists into Russian research and educational organizations), several Russian grants and the European Horizon 2020 grant. The Center has state-of-the-art experimental and computing equipment for conducting high-level scientific researches (plasmonics, dielectric nanophotonics, sources of single photons and their applications), as well as for implementing business-oriented projects. Among the latter – the development of wireless radio frequency coils for MRI (the work is recognized by the ISMRM community at the conference of the same name), wireless power transmission, solar cells based on perovskites, as well as perovskite LEDs, etc. We have significant scientific resources and international level achievements proven by publications in high-impact journals, such as Nature Photonics, Advanced Materials, Nano Letters, Physical Review Letters, Laser & Photonics Reviews, Nanoscale, ACS Photonics and etc.
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, and interviews will be conducted via Skype.
At ITMO University, we love science, innovation and entrepreneurial spirit. Founded in 1900 in St. Petersburg, Russia, today it is home to over 11 000 students.
Our focus is on training elite professionals and tackling some of the world’s top scientific and educational challenges in IT, Photonics, Robotics, Translational Medicine, Art & Science, Urban Studies and Science Communication.
The 34 international research centers generate advanced knowledge and bring top innovative ideas to the market through an established system of R&D support.
Our student team is the only seven-time world champion of the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest. Teams from around the world hone their programming skills at our ITMO World Champions Programming School.
In the heart of St. Petersburg, ITMO University is steps away from world-famous museums, theaters and cultural sights.
