Description

Preferred Degree:

Degree in fields related to Physics (Optics), Electrical or Optical Engineering, or similar. Scientific Computing education is an added benefit.

Key Words:

nonlinear optics, simulation, computational, computation, electromagnetics, numerical calculation, optics, physics, waveguides, metamaterials, photonic crystals, photonic crystal fibers, raman scattering, ultrafast, wave propagation, lasers, programming, coding, computing, parallel computing, solid-state materials; solid-state physics; metasurfaces; materials science; solid-state materials; solid-state physics; structured materials; stratified media; multilayer stacks; interference coatings; periodic media; photolithography; optics; optical theory; optical design; neural networks, machine learning, big data, artificial intelligence

Required Skills:

•    PhD is strongly preferred
•    Computer-aided material, magnetic, electronic, or optical device/system modeling
•    Experienced with MS Office (Word, PowerPoint, Excel)
•    Ability to accurately and succinctly communicate (oral and written) detailed technical material to non-technical and/or non-specialized persons
•      CANDIDATE MUST BE A U.S. CITIZEN
•      Must be able to obtain or maintain a military clearance at Secret level, must be able to retain clearance through period of performance, if needed.

Skills and Core Competencies:
A core focal area is the development of advanced or fundamentally new material systems, structures, and devices built around optical physics.  This includes the development of laser material components and system applications, as well as electro-optic and magneto-optic systems.

The exploratory structured optical materials and processes team (RXAPE) is concerned with the design, process, and modeling of stratified optical media to enable low-cost and scalable preparation of agile optical materials for directed energy applications. The research candidate will be tasked in aiding the development of sophisticated modeling and simulation tools that are not only applicable to nonlinear optics in gas-filled HCPCF and nano-carpet planar waveguides, but that can be used to investigate other structured materials for relevant DOD photonic applications.  

Available resources will include a high performance workstation, laptop, and direct access to a custom built Virtual Beowulf Cluster (the MANTIS CORE).

Candidates must demonstrate:
1.    Proficiency in scientifically poised programming languages such as Python, MATLAB, or C++.
2.    Familiarity in computational electromagnetics.
3.    Experience in university level research exemplified through peer reviewed publications.

Responsibilities:

We are looking for a qualified candidate to support on-base research efforts in support of the Air Force Research Laboratory, Materials and Manufacturing Directorate.  At the broadest level our research group plans, directs and conducts in‑house and extramural research and development of materials technologies with an emphasis of functional applications with sufficient maturity to transition to the warfighter. 

The Light-matter interactions in structured optical media group at the Air Force Research Laboratories (AFRL) at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB) in Dayton, OH is looking for a research grade candidate versed in the areas of optics and photonics.

Many Air Force applications requiring high power lasers are limited to emission wavelengths available from standard gain media, forcing them to function at non-eye-safe wavelengths, wavelengths that adversaries monitor/block, and that are sub-optimal relative to operational needs.

Must have ability to travel, primarily CONUS, 5-10% of the time but occasionally more frequently.

Azimuth Corporation is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability, gender identity, sexual orientation or protected veteran status.
