Job description:

At the Bioelectrodynamics research team (Institute of Photonics and Electronics of the Czech Academy of Sciences), we are looking for a highly motivated researcher for leveraging advanced electromagnetics approaches (bandgap, metamaterial, topological, etc.) in bionanotechnology. To that end, you will design, fabricate and characterize microfluidic microwave and subTHz chip and planar devices. Your chips will be the corner stones of cutting-edge experiments to verify the predictions of the molecular dynamics simulations of your colleagues. This position is offered within the project funded by national excellent fundamental research program EXPRO. The grand goal of the project is to probe and control biological components (protein nanostructures) using ultrashort microwave and subTHz pulses. Your results will contribute to the development of novel electromagnetic technologies for gentler and more effective biomedicine and bionanotechnology of the future.


  • PhD in applied physics, electromagnetic physics, electrical, electromagnetic, radio-frequency engineering, high-frequency electronics, or similar
  • Very good communication skills and the ability to work in a team-focused environment.

We offer:

The Czech Academy of Sciences is internationally highly ranked research institution with exceptional quality growth. At the Institute of Photonics and Electronics of CAS, we offer interesting and challenging job in an international environment, work in a multidisciplinary research team and excellent research infrastructure.
