Postdoctoral Research Fellow Position in the Field of Optical Biosensors

The Institute of Photonics and Electronics v. v. i., in accordance with the Act No.283/1992 of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, as amended by the Act No. 420/2005, and in accordance with the Statutes of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow position in the field of optical biosensors.


Responsibilities and tasks
The selected candidate will carry out research into plasmonic and photonic aspects of optical affinity biosensors. In particular, the candidate will be expected to perform theoretical analysis of plasmonic nanostructures, to design and develop optical platforms for optical affinity biosensors and to participate in their evaluation for biosensing applications.



  • Ph. D. degree in electrical engineering, physics, optics, or similar,
  • strong publication record in the field of application,
  • solid background in plasmonics and photonics,
  • strong experience in theoretical calculations and modelling of plasmonic and photonic nanostructures and in development of optical platforms for optical (bio)sensors,
  • experience in preparation and characterization of plasmonic nanostructures is of advantage,
  • ability to work independently as well as in a multidisciplinary team.


We offer

  • interesting and challenging job in an international environment,
  • work in a large multidisciplinary research team,
  • excellent research infrastructure.


Terms of employment

The initial period of employment is 1 year (with the possibility of an extension), starting from July 15, 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter.
