The Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies (DIAS) is offering a postdoctoral fellowship to work on the  development of optical/near infrared microwave kinetic inductance detectors (MKIDs) for use in  astronomy. The project, which is in an new group, is funded by Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) and  is in collaboration with Trinity College Dublin (CRANN) and Maynooth University. The fellow will work on the design and fabrication of the detectors and is therefore expected to have  
extensive clean room experience. This fellowship is available for 3 years starting as early as possible (the precise starting date is negotiable). Remuneration is based on SFI team member budget scales  ( available here) and starting salary will depend on experience. Interested candidates should send a curriculum vitae, publication list, and a brief statement of research  interests by Friday 22nd Februaryt, 2019. They should also arrange for three letters of reference to be  provided separately by the same date. Applicants should have a PhD in physics, computer science,  astronomy, or a closely related field. DIAS will provide funds for publications, travel, etc., and the  fellow is expected to act as a mentor to an assigned postgraduate student.
DIAS is an Equal Opportunities Employer.
