Post-Doctoral Research Opportunities

Our group has an opening for postdoctoral researcher with background in photonics at large, and ideally with micro- and nano-fabrication experiences. Please contact Prof. Fang (kfang3@illinois.edu) for more details.

Graduate Research Opportunities

We welcome highly motivated students to join our group. Our research cross-fertilizes ideas and techniques from several fields of science and engineering including nanophotonics, NEMS, and quantum optics, and offers rich opportunities for graduate researchers to be trained in device physics, fabrication, and testing. Incoming or interested students should contact Prof. Fang (kfang3@illinois.edu) with a complete CV, accompanied by a short paragraph highlighting relevant practical experience and coursework.
