Fellow on Photonics and Optoelectronics

Università del Salento - CNR NANOTEC

In the framework of the cooperation between CNR Institute of Nanotechnology (CNR NANOTEC) and University of Salento we are looking for highly motivated, enthusiastic and outstanding candidates for research positions in the areas of photonics and optoeletronics.
The successful candidates will work in the Advanced Photonics Group ( on joint projects born from the collaboration between University, CNR and different companies. Multidisciplinary research positions are offered, combining material science, physics and advanced optical techniques, with research projects that include optical and electron microscopy, micro and nanofabrication, terahertz imaging and spectroscopy, and laser-based nonlinear optics.

Our group is at the forefront in the study of light matter interactions in semiconductor and hybrid systems, with several international collaborations (Munich, Stanford, Madrid, Singapore, to name a few), and succeded in the observation of exotic physical phenomena and the engineering of possible advanced applications, such as Bose-Einsten condensation (Acs Photonics 5 (9), 3666-3672), superfluidity (Nature Photonics volume 13, pages 488–493(2019)), quantum polariton (Science advances 4 (4), eaao6814), neuromorphic computing (arXiv preprint arXiv:1911.02923). Potential interested students can check the group's website for a full list of publications (

CNR Institute of Nanotechnology (CNR NANOTEC), a research centers based in Lecce, Rome, Bari and Cosenza is a multidisciplinary research centre featuring more than 12000 sqm of newly built labs and clean rooms and more than 200 researchers coming from physics, chemistry, biology, medicine and engineering areas, including several recipients of awards from the European Research Council. CNR NANOTEC in collaboration with University of Salento is launching a new, long-term research programme to develop novel optoelectronic devices based on nanotechnologies for applications in building integration, smart textiles, lighting, sensor and few photon detection. The final purpose of this research is the development of a new generation of integrated devices that can reduce energy consumption for environmental sustainability.
