Principal Investigator
Prof. Jungwon Kim

The Ultra-Scale Photonic Control and Measurement Group at KAIST 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 mechanical/precision engineering, electrical engineering, and applied and engineering physics. We currently have 9 graduate students and 2 undergraduate students pursuing the highest possible timing precision and stability enabled by novel lasers and ultra-sensitive microwave photonic detection methods.

We currently have an opening for one or two post-doc positions for "fs-laser-based on-chip clock distribution network (CDN)" and "fs-laser TOF-based multi-sensors and imaging systems" projects.

We will also have an opening for one or two master students (eventually leading to PhD program) starting from Sep 2018 or Mar 2019 (one can apply in June 2018 via We always have an opening for undergraduate students for URP Program or Individual Research Program and visiting graduate students (such as supported by China Scholarship Council) 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).
