Ph.D. Vacancy on programmable integrated photonics


The Photonics Research Labs of ITEAM (Institute of Telecommunications and Multimedia Applications) at the Universitat Politècnica de València offers a position for:

1 PhD candidate

on the development of programmable integrated photonics

The PhD candidate will work on the emerging area of Field Programmable Photonic Arrays (FPPAs) and integrated waveguide mesh photonic circuits. The work will include design, test and characterization as well as the development of machine learning techniques for circuit supervision and training. Programmable integrated photonic circuits have applications in Telecommunications, sensing and RF systems as well as in emerging areas such as analog processing for artificial intelligence and quantum information systems.

The candidates should hold a BSc/MSc in Physics or BEng/MEng degree in Electronics/Telecom Engineering with an overall qualification above average (>7). Experience in integrated photonics will be valued.

We offer: Work in the Photonics Research Labs ( in a young and dynamic world-leading team of scientists, strong international collaboration, access to modern technology labs and participation in cutting-edge research programs with strong industrial relations.

Application: Interested candidates are encouraged to send by e-mail before the 22th October: application letter, brief Curriculum Vitae, scanned copy of the University records, record of achievements (papers, presentations, etc.), and any reference letter to Prof. José Capmany:
