A postdoctoral research position is available in the Hybrid Materials for OptoElectronics group Nijhuis of Prof Nijhuis, Department of Molecules and Materials, Faculty of The Faculty of Science & Technology, at the University of Twente with the aim to develop a platform to electrically excite plasmons in extremely small cavities. These devices benefit form extreme field enhancements that can be used to catalyse reactions and simultaneously follow them with SERS at the single-molecule level without the need for external light sources. Such devices will also enable us to address open questions regarding light-matter interaction under these extreme conditions. The challenges will be to fabricate stable pico-scale cavities and to setup a Raman system for in situ characterization of electrically driven devices.


  • PhD degree in physics, preferably with a specialization in non-linear optic optics.
  • Demonstrated experimental skill and a good understanding of theory (plasmonis, non-linear optics, theory, fabrication).
  • You are a self-motivating person who enjoys solving a challenging task in a team of like-minded people.
  • You are an independent thinker with excellent analytical and communication skills.
  • You are fluent in English and an excellent team player in an enthusiastic group of scientists and engineers working on a common theme.


  • The UT provides a dynamic and exciting scientific environment, lots of sports facilities (and other activities), and a green and lively campus. We offer a fulltime position with excellent working conditions in an inspiring multidisciplinary and international environment involving local and overseas collaboration;
  • The Postdoc position is set for 2 3 years at the University of Twente, you will be appointed on a fulltime position;
  • Salary and conditions are in accordance with the collective labour agreement for Dutch universities (CAO-NU);
