Joint Faculty position in Photonics and Materials Science & Engineering, semiconductor materials

February 6, 2023
We are seeking candidates for an Assistant (Tenure earning) or Associate (Tenured) Professor of Materials Science and Engineering in the area of Semiconductor Materials. The research areas of interest include, but are not limited to: 1) theory-led discovery of emerging semiconductor materials and novel concept devices and, 2) growth, characterization, and metrology of new semiconductor and quantum materials. This position will be tenured or tenure earling in the Materials Science department, but will be a 50% appointment in the College of Optic and Photonics with some or all of the faculty member’s research laboratories being located in the CREOL.

Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, or Professor, Space Photonics

December 12, 2022
We are seeking a leading researcher and educator in the area of space photonics to fill a Tenured or Tenure-earning faculty position in the college of Optica and Photonics. Topics of interest include but are not limited to: astrophotonics; space domain awareness; remote sensing; space-based quantum sensors; space-to-ground and space-to-space communications; and space-based photonic devices. This search is tied to a substantial investment by UCF in its Space and Planetary Instrumentation, Commercialization, and Exploration (SPICE) initiative, in collaboration with the Florida Space Institute, Department of Physics, and other UCF units. This includes the establishment of a dedicated Space Photonics Research Laboratory, a related Space Photonics Undergraduate Teaching Laboratory, and a planned lecturer hire (in addition to this current tenure track search). Candidates at the highest level may be considered for an endowed Professorship or Chair position.
