FunctieomschrijvingScientific Director IPI and Full Professor
Institute for Photonic Integration, departments of Electrical Engineering (EE) and Applied Physics (AP), Eindhoven University of Technology.Research ContextThe Institute for Photonic Integration (IPI) is a leading R&D center in the field of photonics. Photonic integration allows a variety of photonic functions (i.e. generation/amplification/processing/detection of light and O/E conversion) to be placed in the same semiconductor chip and be mass-manufactured in a highly reproducible and cost-effective way. We anticipate future use of photonic integrated circuits in data communications, imaging, spectroscopy and metrology due to the radical miniaturization, energy-savings, and step changes in resolution and speed. The work of the institute ranges from fundamental scientific research to the development of prototypes that are taken on to the product stage by industry. The Institute for Photonic Integration continues the research of the TU/e research school COBRA, in which several scientific staff members of both departments participate. In addition, a large cleanroom (800 m2) plus comprehensive laboratories for materials, devices and systems research are available. The research school has been one of the world's leaders of photonics research for decades. It has generated a range of start-up companies, and is cooperating with industries in various application domains.
The institute covers three fields: photonic materials (III-V semiconductors), photonic integrated circuits (PICs), and photonic systems:
Within IPI we focus mainly on Indium-Phosphide (InP) semiconductor based Photonic Integration Technology and its applications.
The candidate will be appointed as Director of the Institute for Photonic Integration (IPI) at the TU/e. Next to this, the candidate will be appointed as a full professor in one of the three research fields covered by IPI. The institute is a lean organization with a scientific director supported by a project officer and secretary. The scientific director defines the strategic research vision and the corresponding roadmaps in collaboration with the EE/AP research groups (technology push) and key industrial and societal partners (application pull). He/She will help to set up and coordinate the large national and European research project proposals to materialize roadmaps. He/She will actively interact and be the prime external representative towards governmental bodies such as NWO, OCW and Brainport as well as towards (major) industrial parties (such as ASML, KPN, NXP, Signify, Philips, …).
The candidate should have a PhD degree in Applied Physics or Electrical Engineering or similar and over 10-year of additional research experience with an internationally acknowledged expertise and visibility in research in at least one of the three key domains (photonic materials-devices/circuits-systems), and clear affinity with the other domains. The candidate should have an outstanding publication record and should be eager to work in an academic setting. He/she should have excellent networking skills, in academic, political and industrial settings. In addition, candidates are expected to have experience in defining and managing of large research programs. A strong background in the technology and application of photonic materials, devices/circuits and/or systems is sought, as well as a track record in valorization/prototyping/exploitation of leading-edge research. A demonstrated ability to define, acquire funding for and manage multi-partner research projects is expected.
