Les postes suivants visent à renforcer l’action menée au sein du Contrat Plan Etat Région Photonics for Society, ce projet fait l’objet du soutien financier du Conseil Régional Hauts de France, de la DRRT Hauts de France et du Fonds Européen de Développement Régional (FEDER).

- Post-doctoral position in theoretical quantum optics (published Dec 2017)
The CPER “Photonics for Society”, situated at the University of Lille, France, announces a post-doctoral fellowship in theoretical quantum optics.

To be eligible for the fellowship the applicant should hold a Ph.D. prior to the start of his contract and have experience in the area of theoretical quantum optics. The fellowship is for one year, with a possible renewal for the second year. The starting date of the fellowship is flexible, the earliest date being the 1st of March, 2018.

The net pay (after the deduction of social contributions, including health coverage and pension contributions, but not income taxes) is approximately 2300 euros/month. The successful candidate will work in the group of quantum optics and quantum information of Laboratory PhLAM on one of the topics of Contrat Plan État Région Photonics for Society and the Laboratory of excellence CEMPI.

Interested candidates should send the following documents in a single file (.doc, .docx, .odt, or .pdf), to :
- A detailed CV describing the candidate’s undergraduate and graduate studies.
- A list of publications.
- A motivation letter.

In addition, two letters of recommendation of renowned scientists familiar with the candidate and his work should be sent directly by those scientists to the email address indicated above. The deadline for application and all required documents is the 31st of January 2018.

The position is financed by the Conseil Régional Hauts de France, the DRRT Hauts de France and the Fonds Européen de Développement Régional (FEDER).  

- Post-doctoral position in Photonics

  • Theme High energy and large band fiber optical parametric amplifier in topographic fibers
  • Research team: Nonlinear optics group of the photonic team, PHLAM laboratory, Lille, France. This team is based in the IRCICA institute.
  • Mission : The aim of the project is to develop high energetic large gain bands fiber optical parametric amplifiers at 1 μm.
