Research Fellow

A full time post-doctorate research position is now available to work
on an EPSRC/DTI funded research project on the use of mixed-metal
materials as replacements for cadmium in opto-electronic thin-film
coatings.
The University of Reading Infrared Multilayer Laboratory are world
specialists in the research, design and manufacture of
state-of-the-art high-performance infrared optical filters and
coatings for space-borne and ground-based telescope imaging &
spectrometer instruments. The laboratory has an international
reputation and heritage for the supply of infrared filters and
coatings to many space and astronomical research projects used in
planetary remote sensing and atmospheric weather research satellites
since the late 1960's. Further details can be found at

Candidates must have a PhD in optical thin-film engineering or a
related physics/materials science background with knowledge in the
theory and experimental deposition of optical thin-films, including
reactive RF sputtering, plasma assisted CVD and thermal evaporation.
The successful applicant will be responsible for the design and
development of complex and innovative state-of-the-art thin film
coatings and materials for optical and electro-optical components.
Proficiency in optical thin-film coating design applications software
(e.g. Macleod, Filmstar etc.) would be an advantage. Good mechanical
and electrical troubleshooting skills are necessary. The appointee
must be self-motivated, with the ability to work with little
supervision and a high level of attention, and be able to work well
with engineers and other departmental technicians in a team
environment. The successful candidate will be expected to rapidly
make significant technical contributions and be capable of in-depth
technical communication with project partners. Responsibilities may
also include a single major project or several smaller projects
simultaneously.
