Designation: Postdoctoral Researcher

Research Area: Integrated Photonics Design, Simulation, Fabrication, Characterization, and Packaging

Location: ICFO – The Institute of Photonic Sciences, Spain

Eligibility/Qualification: Candidates must hold an internationally-recognized Ph.D.-equivalent degree (or evidence of its completion in the nearest future), preferably in Physics, Photonics, or Engineering. The candidate should have a proven track record in one or more of the following:

  • PIC design
  • PIC simulation
  • PIC fabrication
  • PIC characterization
  • PIC packaging

A good level of research independence and project management is expected. Experience in integrated quantum photonics adds value to the application.

Job Description: The successful candidates will work on projects related to classical and quantum photonic integrated circuits (PICs). Responsibilities include:

  • Design, simulation, fabrication, characterization, and packaging of PICs.
  • Developing next-generation PIC-based technologies, ranging from classical photonic processing to quantum communication, sensing, and metrology.
  • Working on on-chip quantum key distribution transmitters, entangled pair sources, and single photon sources.
  • Contributing to several European projects the group is involved in.

How to Apply: Suitable candidates are requested to submit the following:

  • Presentation letter with a declaration of interest
  • Curriculum Vitae, including contact details
  • Contact e-mail of two potential referees

Applications should be submitted to Candidates will be assessed as they apply and the call will remain open until the suitable candidate is identified. Formal enquiries regarding the application can be directed to, and scientific enquiries can be addressed to
