The Department of Photonics Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark is offering a two-year theoretical postdoctoral position in the Structured Electromagnetic Materials group. The research project is funded by the Independent Research Fund Denmark.

About the Project:
  • Two well-known quantum light sources in bulk materials are defects centers and quantum dots, with numerous sensing, lighting, and laser applications.
  • It was discovered in the past few years that the analogous two types of quantum light sources also exist in 2D materials, and their science and applications are only beginning to be explored.
  • For this project talented and enthusiastic young researchers are invited to consider working with us on various types of quantum emitters that can be found or created inside 2D materials.
  • The aim is to find new ways to generate these single-photon sources and to understand and manipulate their properties.


  • Candidates should have successfully completed their PhD or almost have done so, and we look for candidates with strong theoretical and computational skills in nanophotonics and/or quantum optics.


Submit online application and applications must be submitted as one pdf file containing the following materials:

  • Application (cover letter)
  • CV
  • Diploma (MSc/PhD)
  • List of publications
