Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Position in the Physics Department at the University of Toronto for Theoretical Research in the Science and Applications of Photonic Crystals. Qualified candidates must have a Ph.D. with background in condensed matter physics, quantum optics, computational electrodynamics, and/or photonics. Successful candidates will engage in full time research with Prof. Sajeev John in strong light-matter interactions in photonic crystals and light trapping effects. Applications include solar energy harvesting, lab-on-a-chip optical bio-sensing and room temperature Bose-Einstein condensation. Familiarity with numerical and computational methods is required. A more detailed description of recent research can be found at Successful candidates are also expected to have strong communication skills in order to interact effectively with graduate students and collaborating international experimental groups. The normal duration of these appointments is 2-3 years, renewable on a yearly basis.

Interested candidates should send their CV and arrange for three letters of reference to be sent to: Prof. Sajeev John (contact details in
