Postdoctoral Position in Experimental Optical Metamaterials & Pasmonics - Applied and Engineering Physics

Cornell University's College of Engineering, the preeminent engineering school in the Ivy League, has a rich history of experimentation, innovation, and leadership. Consisting of almost 3,000 undergraduate students, 1,700 graduate students, and over 200 faculty members, Cornell Engineering is recognized as a global leader in the discovery of new knowledge and the creation of transforming inventions. Cornell Engineering students and faculty members possess an independent spirit that allows for the development of innovative interdisciplinary research, the creation of exciting new programs, and the education of students who will better the future.


The School of Applied & Engineering Physics (AEP), is a department in Cornell University's College of Engineering. The mission of the School of Applied and Engineering Physics is to create and disseminate knowledge in intellectual areas at the interface between physics and traditional engineering or scientific disciplines, using the techniques, skills and principles commonly associated with physics.


Applications are solicited for a postdoctoral position in the field of experimental optical metamaterials and plasmonics in the research group of Prof. Gennady Shvets at Cornell University. The topics pursued in the group include (1) integration of 2D materials and metasurfaces, (2) topological photonics, (3) biosensing and cancer detection using plasmonic metasurfaces. Possibilities for conducting experimental work on microwave metamaterials also exist, especially in the context of non-reciprocal and topological metamaterials. More information about the research can be found at the group’s homepage: . A PhD in physics, optics, or related area is required, and hands-on experience in the following areas will be considered a plus: infrared optics, nanofabrication, biophotonics, spectroscopy, microwaves. It is expected that the candidate has a record of publications on these topics in leading refereed journals. The salary and benefits are competitive, and the successful candidate will join a well-established yet dynamic group. Starting date: as early as summer/fall 2017. Send a CV, a statement of research interests, and the names of three references to Professor Gennady Shvets by email to, or to the address below. Applications will be considered until this position is filled.
