OFFER STARTING DATE01/12/2020
Novel nonohotonics waveguides are emerging that display high optical nonlinearity and whose dispersion properties can be tailored in various way. As a result, wave mixing such as second and third harmonic generation and their reverse processes can be observed with unprecedented specifications. This allows the generation of optical quantum states as well as their manipulation in the frequency degree of freedom allowing to create coloured superposition states.
The project includes many aspects of physics engineering: theory, design and experimentation.
The monthly salary amounts for 2055 euros exempted from taxes. Benefits include mandatory health insurance, laptop, travel to conferences and doctoral schools. The contract is for an initial duration of 1 year to be extended to reach a normal PhD duration of 4 years.
Because of funding regulations, candidates having finished their master more than a year ago won’t be considered. Applications are possible as early as October 2020 and applications will be assessed until the positions is filled (without any hard deadline). The contract can start as early as one month after agreement. To apply, submit your CV and a cover letter to Stéphane Clemmen by email (email@example.com). References and possibly your master thesis can also be helpful.
The project will take place primarily at the Université Libre de Bruxelles under the supervision of Stephane Clemmen and in collaboration with the photonics research group at the university of Ghent. Stéphane Clemmen is affiliated with OPERA-photonics (engineering faculty) and the Quantum information laboratory(science faculty) that share a large lab dedicated to nonlinear and quantum optics. Both the science faculty and the engineering school offer regular scientific talks and events, as well as courses and social events dedicated to PhD students.
At the starting time of the contract, the applicant must hold a master’s degree in physics, physics engineering, photonics engineering or any closely related field.
A good knowledge of physics and a basic knowledge of optics are required. Experience with numerical simulation is a plus. Good knowledge of English and/or French is required.
- Perform research in an increasingly independent way
- Reporting on the research
- Communication to peers orally at conference and via specialized journal publications
- A limited amount of teaching hours is foreseen (8 full days / year)
