Open PhD positions for Graduate students:

Our laboratory is continuously considering applications by prospective PhD students, to work in one of the following areas:

  • Quantum Optomechanics with nano-mechanical resonators
  • Optomechanics with superconducting circuits
  • Micro-resonator based frequency combs for Metrology, Atomic Clocks or high speed communication as well as fundamental studies of nonlinear dissipative soliton Physics

Possible PhD candidates who wish to obtain diverse skill-sets combining advanced nano-fabrication, quantum and nonlinear optics and numerical simulations are encouraged to apply for these positions. A background in experimental physics is certainly helpful, but not neccesarily required. Candidates from all countries and continents will be considered. 

We carefully review applications of interested PhD students at any time of the year. For full consideration – please send Tobias J. Kippenberg your CV, transcripts and a short statement of motivation of how your research interests fit into the Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurement.

Undergraduate students: Master thesis (Diploma thesis):

We welcome any good student who likes to join a highly motivated team, working on one of the aforementioned research areas. Basic knowledge in (quantum/nonlinear) optics and micro-fabrication is a plus, but motivation to work in a team is more important. The possibility to receive a stipend to join LPQM is possible for students that are not from Switzerland.

Postdoctoral positions:

The Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements is continuously open for a post-doctoral scientist. Highly motivated candidates, which are interested to continue on an academic path, are encouraged to apply to join our internationally diverse research group to carry out research on cavity quantum opto- and electromechanics or microresonator frequency combs. All projects the lab is engaged in are both richly experimental, but contain also a strong theoretical component. We therefore welcome both theoretical and experimental Physicists or Scientists as postdoctoral scholars, and maintain close collaboration with theory groups (in particular on quantum measurements and control). Postdoctoral scholars typically apply with the laboratory for a Marie Curie fellowship, either European or International. Applications for this fellowship are September of each year. Furthermore, applicants with a background in AMO Physics or Cryogenics are particularly welcome to apply. Please directly send an email to Tobias J Kippenberg with CV and a brief motivation statement.


Research Internships:

A paid research internships offered by the EPFL is also possible. This program aims for 3rd and 4th year BSc as well as MSc students. More informations can be found at http://ri.epfl.ch/researchinternships.
