GREAT MINDS. ONE GOAL. CANADA'S SUCCESS.
The National Research Council of Canada (NRC) is the Government of Canada's largest research organization supporting industrial innovation, the advancement of knowledge and technology development. We collaborate with over 70 colleges, universities and hospitals annually, work with 800 companies on their projects, and provide advice or funding to over 8000 Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) each year.
We bring together the brightest minds to deliver tangible impacts on the lives of Canadians and people around the world. And now, we want to partner with you. Let your expertise and inspirations make an impact by joining the NRC.
At NRC, we know diversity enables excellence in research and innovation. We are committed to a diverse and representative workforce, an open and inclusive work environment, and contributing to a more inclusive Canadian innovation system.
NRC welcomes all qualified applicants and encourages candidates to self-declare as members of the following designated employment equity groups: women, visible minorities, aboriginal peoples and persons with disabilities.
Please advise of any accommodation measures required to enable you to be assessed in a fair and equitable manner. They are available to all candidates for further assessment. Related information received will be addressed confidentially.
The NRC’s Postdoctoral Fellowship program offers PDFs access to unique world-class facilities and the opportunity to work alongside multi-disciplinary teams of expert researchers and technicians on projects of critical importance to Canada. PDFs will carry out research on innovative research projects, with opportunities for career development (publications and/or industry interaction).
PDFs will be offered appointments to the staff of the National Research Council on a term basis and will be offered salaries and benefits currently available to Research Officers. Salaries commensurate with experience are taxable and subject to other deductions. As a guide, the current annual PhD recruiting rate is $72,053. In addition PDFs will be allocated a travel fund to support their work.
Quantum Frequency Translation
NRC is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow to develop chip-based quantum frequency translation techniques with single photons emitted from quantum dot nanowire-based sources. Quantum systems designed for secure communications, information processing or storage rely on a variety of platforms for their operation, with exchanges of quantum information between components enabled by the interchange of photonic qubits. As such, a major requirement for such systems is a source of frequency agile, non-classical light that can bridge the gap between platforms of differing energy requirement. NRC has pioneered technologies for the production of solid state, single and entangled-pair sources operating at wavelengths close to 950nm and this project seeks to further exploit this technology while adding the capability for chip-based, quantum frequency translation. The successful candidate will be responsible for device design and implementation of integrated photonic structures in the silicon nitride materials platform. Experiments will be performed at cryogenic temperatures using photons evanescently coupled from quantum dot nanowires.
Ph.D. in integrated quantum optics or a closely related field
For information on certificates and diplomas issued abroad, please see Degree equivalency
Experience in some of the following areas is required;
· Quantum optics in nanostructures and quantum dots, Cryogenic techniques, Non-linear optics, semiconductor device design and fabrication
Although preference will be given to Canadian citizens and Permanent Residents, Fellowships are open to nationals of all countries. The offer of a Fellowship does not ensure foreign nationals Permanent Residency in Canada. Non-Canadian candidates should apply for non-immigrant status (i.e. temporary status) and an employment visa. For further information, please contact the closest Canadian High Commission, Embassy or Consulate in your area.
In order to be considered for the program please include the following in your application, please note that you will need to attach the required documents as per the list below when submitting your application. Failure to do so will result in your application being excluded from the search.
When submitting your application you can include the required documents in any attachment field such as «Second language evaluation results» or «Other attachments»
In addition, applicants who best meet the requirements of the position will be asked to provide three letters of recommendation at a later stage of the competition process.
Relocation assistance will be determined in accordance with the NRC's directives.
From $55,541 to $157,009 per annum.
The Postdoctoral Fellowships Program is unique to the NRC. It falls under the RO/RCO classification system which uses a person-based classification system instead of the more common duties-based classification system. Candidates are remunerated based on their expertise, skill, outcomes and impacts of their previous work experience.
