Open Positions

Doctoral Candidate Position in Optics and Photonics

We are looking for a doctoral student to join our group for experimental work on ultrafast optical polarization phenomena and photon-correlation imaging using multicolor optical fields. The candidate will develop experimental methods for assessment of light polarization dynamics of natural and multicolor laser sources, as well as demonstrate experimentally an aberration-independent optical imaging method based on photon correlation detection. The research can have significant impact especially on the fields of polarimetry, optical imaging and spectroscopy, optical information processing, and the characterization of natural and artificial light sources. Preference will be given to candidates with good understanding of basic optics and photonics and experience in designing and conducting optical experiments.

The research will be done within the Finnish Academy project “Ultrafast polarization phenomena with multicolor optical fields and two-photon detection”.

The application material should include:

  1. Letter of motivation (max. 1 page)
  2. Curriculum vitae
  3. Diploma certificate
  4. Transcript of Records (opintorekisteriote)
  5. Contact details of two possible referees

The application should be sent no later than 15th of September to D.Sc. (Tech.), Doc. Andriy Shevchenko, e-mail: andriy.shevchenko [at] aalto [dot] fi. The position will be fulfilled as soon as suitable candidate is found.


Research work towards M.Sc. thesis in Optics and Photonics

We offer an undergraduate student position to work on a M.Sc. thesis on the topics of ultrafast all-optical modulation and photon-correlation imaging. The research is connected to the development of novel experimental methods based on pulsed and modulated laser light.  Preference will be given to candidates with basic understanding of optics and experience in experimental physics. For more information, contact D.Sc. (Tech.), Doc. Andriy Shevchenko, e-mail: andriy.shevchenko [at] aalto [dot] fi.
