The Photonics laboratory at the Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience at Chalmers University of Technology is a dynamic and creative group with about 30 members working in an international and collaborative atmosphere. We perform both curiosity-driven and applied-research in the areas of optoelectronics, silicon photonics, and fiber-optic systems.

We enjoy a state-of-the-art laboratory for fiber-optic communications and have access to in-house cleanroom facilities to manufacture photonic devices engineered at the nanoscale. Part of our recent research efforts focus on chip-scale frequency combs, silicon nitride photonics and next-generation optical communication systems featuring ultra-fast data rates (>1 Pb/s).

We have recently established an excellence center in the area of integrated photonics, META-PIX, supported by the Swedish Research Council. To support the long-term competitiveness and development in this area, we are now seeking outstanding candidates for a tenure-track Assistant Professor position who will pursue a strong and international leading research program related to integrated photonics technologies. We particularly welcome applications from junior researchers that will bring complementary expertise.

We offer you the chance to design a unique and autonomous research program, networking with specialists, students and entrepreneurs across disciplines and departments. Additionally, the successful candidate will receive competitive start-up funding, relocation support, leadership programs, mentoring, etc.
