Project Description

Silicon Photonics (SiPh) technologies have the potential to greatly improve photonic integration into microelectronics by allowing reliable and scalable optical chip manufacturing. Yet, the full economical benefits of SiPh technologies still appear to be out of the reach of hardware manufacturers, because of the complexity, high cost and lack of demonstrated reliability of the packaging of SiPh technologies.

We are looking for creative and enthusiastic candidates who are interested in microfabrication in clean room environments, innovative packaging process development, material science, optical systems and prototype reliability testing. They will also have the chance to work closely with our industrial partner on technical matters and strategic orientations. This position thus offers a great opportunity for both avenues of typical research profiles for candidates who are looking to pursue careers either in academia or industrial research.
