PhD Scholarship in Ultrafast Nonlinear Optics at KTH Royal Institute of Technology

KTH Royal Institute of Technology is offering PhD position in spectroscopy. The funds for this position are available for two years. This position is closed on January 30, 2019.

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe's leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden's largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

The project aims at nonlinear optical techniques for generating high-energy pulses in mid-infrared spectral range, especially in the regime of ulreashort pulses, corresponsding to few oscillations of the optical field. Such pulses will find numerous applications in nonlinear spectroscopy of solid-state materials, and other fields of research and technology. The work in the project relies heavily on internal collaboration within the group and present ample opportunities for national and international collaborations. The Laser Physics research group which drives this project is located at the AlbaNova University Center and is part of KTH Laser Lab facility. The facilities available for the project include well-funded extensive laser and optics labs, cleanroom facilities as well as equipment for material processing and characterization.

Good working knowledge in optics, laser physics and quantum electronics would be required for productive work. Experience in numerical simulations would be a benefit.

In order to succeed as an doctoral student at KTH you need to be goal oriented and persevering in your work.

Only those who are or have been admitted to third-cycle studies may be employed as a doctoral student. The term of the initial contract may not exceed one year and may thereafter be extended. Doctoral students may engage in teaching, research, and administration corresponding to a maximum of 20 % of a full-time position.

Apply for the position and admission through KTH’s recruitment system. It is the applicant's responsibility to ensure that the application is complete in accordance with the instructions in the advertisement.

Applications must be received at the last closing date at midnight, CET/CEST (Central European Time/entral European Summer Time).
