  • experience in preparation and characterization of plasmonic nanostructures is of advantage,
  • ability to work independently as well as in a multidisciplinary team.

 

We offer

  • interesting and challenging job in an international environment,
  • work in a large multidisciplinary research team,
  • excellent research infrastructure.

 

Terms of employment

The initial period of employment is 1 year (with the possibility of an extension), starting from July 15, 2017 or as soon as possible thereafter. 

 

 

Application procedure
We ask that candidates send a letter of application (cover letter), CV, list of publications and two references to Mrs. Plášilová (plasilova@ufe.cz). In the subject line of your email, please, state that you apply for position UFE-F16. The deadline for applications is June 20, 2017.

Institute of Photonics and Electronics CAS organized seminar 3BIO: Biophotonics and Bioelectronics for Biomedicine on Friday Nov 25, 2016.
The foundation Nadání Josefa, Marie a Zdeňky Hlávkových awarded excellent Czech scientists and academics as well as extraordinary activities of students from Czech universities and the Czech Academy of Sciences.
The main attraction of the International Training School on "Fibre Lasers and Fibre Optic Technology" were the lectures given by the leading European experts from both academia and industry, as well as by the "hands-on" laboratory exercises, during which they participated in the preparation of optical fibres or fibre lasers build-up.
Come see inside our laboratories. Do not hesitate and register today, the capacity is limited!
The visitors of Science week at the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering, CTU could also visit some laboratories of IPE.
You can look forward to IPE at the Prague Museum Night again this year at the National Library of Technology.
We would like to invite you to a lecture by Dr. Sonia M. García-Blanco called "High-contrast KYW waveguides: towards on-chip compact amplifiers integrated onto passive technology platforms."
