PhD Candidate: Ultrafast Lasers, CNRS-FEMTO-ST institute, France

PhD Open Position in Organic Chemistry, CNRS, France

PhD Candidate: Ultrafast Lasers: Join the forefront of laser physics and nonlinear optics with a 3-year PhD position at CNRS-FEMTO-ST institute, France. Contribute to the development of advanced photonic crystal fibers for ultra-stable supercontinuum sources, pivotal for future ultrafast laser technologies.

PhD Candidate: Supercontinuum Generation for Next-Generation Tunable Ultrafast Lasers

Designation: PhD Candidate

Research Area: Physics » Optics

Location: CNRS-FEMTO-ST institute, Optics Department, France


  • Education: Master’s degree or equivalent in physics, optics, lasers, or related fields.
  • Skills: Proficiency in experimental optics, lasers, and fiber optics. Familiarity with theoretical physics and numerical modeling (Matlab or Python). Strong communication skills in English (French proficiency desirable).
