Graduate Students

We are looking for self-motivated graduate students who would like to conduct research at the frontier in ultra-precision metrology and manufacturing. We are particularly interested in students with background in engineering, physics, and materials science. The successful applicants will have opportunities to develop excellent skills in multiple aspects including ultrafast photonics, optical metrology, laser manufacturing, flexible/stretchable electronics, IOT sensors, FDTD modeling, micro-/nano-fabrication, and optical/electrical characterization. Graduate students can be supported by either university scholarships, research scholarship (tuition/stipend), or national fellowships.

Undergraduate Students

We welcome undergraduate students who want to gain research experience in the general fields of photonics/ optics, IOT sensors, nano/micro devices, micro/nano fabrication, and optical microscopy. Both part time research during the regular semesters and full time research during the break terms are welcome.

Postdoctoral Research Fellows and Research Professors

We also have a few postdoctoral fellow and research professor positions. The candidates should have very strong experience in either ultrafast optics, optical metrology, laser manufacturing or flexible/stretchable electronics. Background in mechanical engineering, physics, and material science is preferred, but other disciplines are also considered.

Visiting Students and Scholars

We are also highly interested in working with self-supported international graduate students and visiting scholars (with fellowships/scholarships), who would like to explore the research areas in our group.

Candidates who are interested in one of these positions above should send a your full CV (with your background, research interest and prior experience) to Prof. Young-Jin KIM via e-mail (yj.kim@kaist.ac.kr).
