Academic appointment in Compound Semiconductor Optoelectronic Device Technology

As part of a major investment programme in compound semiconductor science and technology, the Cardiff University Institute for Compound Semiconductors (ICS) and the School of Physics and Astronomy seek a talented, motivated academic with expertise in optoelectronic technology involving compound semiconductors. This position will contribute to the ICS core research with an emphasis on optoelectronic devices and systems, and to the School’s undergraduate and postgraduate teaching programmes.

The ICS forms part of over £300M investment in new research and innovation centres, with substantial investment by the Welsh and UK governments. It will be a unique facility in Europe, equipped with state-of-the art fabrication, epitaxy and device characterisation facilities. Stimulated by demand for creative and professional prototyping services, the ICS provides an environment to advance academic research towards industrially-facing projects and is a foundational member of the Compound Semiconductor Cluster.

You will have a PhD in Physics, Engineering or a closely-related subject area from a leading university programme, or equivalent industrial experience, and be capable of independent research and device development in optoelectronics. You will have an outstanding research track record demonstrated through publications in high quality academic journals, collaborative industrial experience, and success in gaining and enhancing research income. You will be an excellent teacher and have clearly demonstrated the ability to teach effectively at University level.

Applications should include a cover letter, a CV, and supporting statements on research and teaching, demonstrating how the essential criteria are met.

The appointment is open ended and will be made at a level commensurate with experience: Lecturer (grades 6/7) or Senior Lecturer (grade 8).


Lecturer: £32,548 - £38,833 per annum (Grade 6) or £41,212 - £47,722 per annum (Grade 7)
Senior Lecturer: £49,149 - £56,950 per annum (Grade 8)
