Various highlighted areas are:


New Generation Plasmonic Nanostructures for Surface-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy

  1. High-Efficiency Flexible Ultra-thin Silicon Photovoltaics
  2. SERS based comparative studies for Advanced Sensing Applications
  3. Novel Optical Memristor Devices
  4. Metamaterial Catalysis- a quantum leap over Photo-Catalysis

Requirements: A careful, meticulous and analytical mindset, with excellent communication skills. Self-reliant and self-motivated. Previous research experience is a strong asset. 


Interested Candidates: Please send a cover letter/email articulating your qualifications/interest and appropriateness for the position, CV and copy of ROSI transcripts to:
