Post-doctoral position on new generation of Mid and Long Wave infrared photodetectors and Bolometers

The Functional Optoelectronic NanoMaterials research group at ICFO, led by ICREA Prof. Gerasimos Konstantatos, is looking for a postdoctoral fellow to develop high sensitivity Mid and LongWave Infrared Photodetectors and Bolometers.

The candidate will join a team comprising physicists, material scientists and engineers to design, develop and characterize a new class of detectors aiming for low-cost, high-sensitivity mid and longwave infrared photodetectors and/or bolometers, based on colloidal quantum dots and/or 2D materials.

In particular, the ideal candidate should have demonstrated expertise on the design, development and characterization of photodetectors and/or bolometers in the mid and longwave infrared regime. Specific experience in the optoelectronic characterization of detectors/bolometers in this spectral regime (3 - 12 um) as well as their modeling will be considered an essential asset.

For further information about the Functional Optoelectronic NanoMaterials research group at ICFO, please see, or contact Prof. Dr. Gerasimos Konstantatos (

Job Requirements

Apart from the specific skills required for the position (please, see the project description for details), as a general requirement, candidates must hold an internationally-recognized Ph.D.-equivalent degree (or evidence of its completion in the nearest future) Applied Physics or Electrical Engineering, prior to taking up the position.

No restrictions of citizenship apply to the ICFO positions. Female scientists are encouraged to apply. Persons with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.

Salaries will be commensurate with the experience of the candidates.
