Postdoctoral Researcher in Quantum Nonlinear Optics in Nanomaterials

Postdoctoral Researcher in Quantum Nonlinear Optics in Nanomaterials

Aalto University

Helsinki, Finland


Your goal as a Postdoctoral Researcher will be to develop nanoscale quantum nonlinear photonic sources (such as frequency down-conversion, four-wave mixing) based on various nanomaterials, such as one-dimensional materials (e.g. carbon nanotubes, nanowires) and two-dimensional layered materials (e.g. transition metal dichalcogenides). You'll get to conduct high quality research independently and to work as an active member of the research groups by taking part in project management duties and guiding M.Sc. and Doctoral students.


This research position will be jointly supported by four research groups (i.e. the Photonics group, the Nanoscience and Advanced Materials group, and the Micro and Quantum Systems group and the Optoelectronics group) at the Department of Electronics and Nanoengineering. All four research groups are located in the Micronova Nanofabrication Center, the largest academic clean room facility in the Nordics.

Professor Zhipei Sun leads the Photonics group, which mainly focuses on the study of physical properties of various nanomaterials (e.g. carbon nanotubes, nanowires, 2D materials) for photonics and optoelectronic applications. Professor Harri Lipsanen leads the Nanoscience and Advanced Materials group, which studies the fabrication, processing and characterization of various nanomaterials (e.g. 2D materials, compound semiconductor nanowires) for nanoelectronics and photonics. Professor Ilkka Tittonen leads the Micro and Quantum Systems group, which investigates quantum optics, quantum theory on semiconductors, organic light-active molecules, thermoelectrics and ion trapping. Professor Markku Sopanen leads the Optoelectronics group, which specializes in materials research (e.g. MOVPE growth of compound semiconductors and their nanostructures) for optoelectronics.


  • PhD degree in quantum photonics or related topics is favorable for the position;
  • Excellent knowledge of characterization of quantum sources;
  • Proven track record in major scientific research;
  • Good command of English is necessary.
