What do you get when you bring together the brightest minds and place them into an exciting, fast-paced environment that fosters intellectual growth and rewards based on impact, not tenure?
You get one of the best privately held small business headquartered in Huntsville, Alabama, that provides advanced technology and expert consulting services to industries throughout the world. AEgis specializes in modeling & simulation (M&S) and micro/nanoscale technology development. Our core competencies include simulation software and training simulators; geospatial databases; 3D models; war fighter exercise support; systems engineering and analysis; verification, validation, and accreditation (VV&A); test and evaluation support; Hardware-in-the-Loop (HWIL) and Man-in-the-Loop (MIL) simulation. AEgis' Nanogenesis Division excels in advancing cutting edge micro and nanoscale technologies from concept to deployment with applications ranging from defense to energy to biotechnology.
AEgis Technologies is seeking a highly qualified Research Scientist supporting the nano-optics research and development group. The Research Scientist will be responsible for experimental laser testing and characterization of nonlinear metamaterials and plasmonic devices for military and commercial applications. The candidate should have extensive experience with ultrafast (femtosecond) lasers, OPO, OPA, experimental optical setup, measurements and characterization. Experience in electromagnetic modeling and simulation in nonlinear nanophotonic optical materials is a plus. We expect the candidate to eventually develop his/her own strategic research agenda and progressively become the group’s technical lead for experimental nonlinear optics. Candidates should have a strong fundamental background in nanophotonics and a desire to develop and commercialize new technologies. The Research Scientist will work collaboratively as a member of a research team in a dynamic work environment and must possess strong interpersonal skills to coordinate/collaborate with internal and external stakeholders.
