Send us a message about yourself and we'll reach out for your resume and more information.
You will be involved in:

- Design of integrated nonlinear photonic devices

- Simulations of next-generation integrated optical devices

- Analyzing, summarizing, and sharing your results.

- Working in collaboration with fabrication, measurement and simulation scientists.

You are suitable for this role if you have or are:

- Experience with design, simulation, and measurement of photonics devices and integrated photonics.

- Good understanding of quantum optics and non-linear optics.

- Experienced with FDTD or frequency domain optical simulation softwares (e.g. COMSOL, ANSYS Lumerical, MEEP).

- Proficient in Python for data acquisition and analysis.

- Effective working in a team environment with other engineers, scientists and technicians who have a wide range of expertise.

- Proven experimental track record.

Supplementary skills set:

- Experience in cleanroom fabrication processes of photonics components.

- Experience working with PPLN waveguides/cavities.

Our Ideal Candidate:

Our ideal candidate would be self-motivated, self-organized on assigned tasks, and have a sense of their responsibilities. They would be excited to work at the boundary between design, fabrication and measurement and keep track of the device development lifecycle. Teamwork is an essential value of our company, hence fitting into the team is crucial. They would have to feel positive working in a fast-paced learning environment. We strongly encourage people of any underrepresented group (e.g. gender, socioeconomic, disabilities, orientation, etc.) to apply.

Education level required:

PhD or equivalent practical experience in Quantum Optics/ Photonics
