Undergraduate and/or Master’s degree in Electrical Engineering, Physics, Engineering Physics or in any relevant field with photonics, THz, modeling, optics. Experience in programming – Matlab, Python, C++ and/or Labview – is highly recommended. Background in lasers, optical fibers, modeling and/or 3D printing is recommended.

If interested in this position, please send your CV and motivation letter to Prof. S. Loranger at Note that generic messages or letters without motivation to our laboratory’s research will be rejected immediately.

Detailed description

The field of THz is very rich in applications, especially in materials characterisation and sensing. It is also considered to be crucial for the exploitation of the next generations (6G and beyond) of wireless communications. However, developments have essentially remained limited due to the restricted number of tools available for the generation and manipulation of THz waves.

We are recruiting Master’s and PhD students to pursue research in THz waves generation and interaction using optical non-linear phenomena and photonic crystal, such as fiber Bragg gratings.

Financing possibility

Funding is possible. Many possibilities of getting provincial or federal graduate scholarships for outstanding CVs.
