Photonics laboratory at KAUST is conducting research on the development of membrane-based wide-gap compound semiconductors and developing micro / nano optoelectronic devices. Photonics laboratory is now using molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) to grow wide-bandgap semiconductors (group-III nitride & oxide) and conducting material characterizations. In addition, these grown semiconductors are manufactured in the form of membranes through various process technologies and transferred to metal, silicon, and flexible substrates to develop multifunctional devices on a single substrate.
We are now looking for highly motivated and dedicated candidates to work with the above studies. If you join our group, you will proceed with compound semiconductor growth and membrane research by using MBE, and participate in the development of membrane-based micro / nano optoelectronic devices.
The successful candidate is expected to - have a background of physics, materials science, electrical engineering, or a related field, - have know-how on the physics and technology of semiconductor, - be able to work in a team, - and be able to carry out research in an interdisciplinary and international environment.
Applicants should send a one-page statement on your motivation, past research experience including CV to:
