Post-doctoral position in Theoretical Plasmonics and Nanophotonics

ICFO is offering a postdoctoral position to a well-qualified, highly motivated and dynamic young scientist who wishes to enhance his/her scientific career in a friendly and stimulating environment.

The successful candidate will be joining the recently established Theoretical Nanophotonics research group led by Prof. Javier Garcia de Abajo. The group has experience in theoretical modeling in the areas of plasmonics, nanophotonics, and electron-microscopy spectroscopies. Also, the group routinely produces state-of-the-art theory to explain and design new experiments and phenomena, in particular in the fields of graphene photonics, plasmon-based metamaterials, interaction of free electrons with matter, and quantum many-body physics associated with the interaction of light with nanostructured environments.

The candidate will participate in on-going projects of the group and develop novel research ideas in any of the areas mentioned above or new emerging opportunities, and closely interact with leading experimental collaborators in these fields.

The formal application should be submitted online via

Suitable candidates are requested to submit:
– Presentation letter with a declaration of interest,
– Curriculum Vitae, including full address, a contact phone number and e-mail address,
– The contact e-mail of two potential referees.

Candidates should be willing to be contacted by phone during the selection process.

Candidates may contact for informal enquiries regarding the application, as well as address scientific enquiries to Prof Javier Garcia de Abajo at

The call will remain open until suitable candidates are identified.
