KAIST Ultra-Scale Photonic Control and Measurement Group invites applications for post-docs, graduate researchers (leading to master and doctoral degrees), and undergraduate researchers for performing exciting research in advanced laser sources and their fascinating scientific and industrial applications.

As the nature of our research is highly interdisciplinary and dynamic, we welcome researchers with various technical backgrounds in electrical engineering, physics, and mechanical engineering. We currently have 7 graduate students and 1 postdoctoral researcher pursuing the highest possible timing precision and stability enabled by novel lasers and ultra-sensitive microwave photonic detection methods.

Many of our graduate students' works were recognized by high-profile journal publications (including Nature Photonics, Nature Communications, Science Advances, Optica) and research awards, both domestic and international levels, and our PhD graduates and former post-docs are playing important roles as leading researchers and engineers at academia, national labs, and industry.

We currently have openings for
- one post-doc (background in comb metrology and/or micro-mechanics is highly desirable)
- two master students (starting from Mar 2024)
- one PhD student (starting from Sep 2024)

We always have an opening for undergraduate students for URP Program or Individual Research Program (summer interns from other colleges are also very welcome) and visiting graduate students and scholars from other universities.

If you have an interest in joining the group or any inquiries on opportunities in the group, please do not hesitate to send an e-mail to the PI (Prof. Jungwon Kim, click here for an e-mail).
