  • Participate in development of patent applications
  • Occasional traveling is required


  • Master or Ph.D. in Electronic Engineering or Physics or equivalent discipline
  • 2 year of relevant working experiences
  • Familiar with the principle of optics and semiconductor physics
  • Good communication skills with the ability to work in an international team

Preferred Experience:

  • Deep knowledge of optical waveguide devices
  • Solid understanding of the fabrication process of photonic integration
  • Knowledgeable in both simulating, design, and testing PICs
  • Proficient in computer programming languages such as MATLAB and Python
  • Candidate with more experience may be considered as senior/principal engineer

Preferred Skills:

  • Deep knowledge of physics in optical devices (e.g. of optical waveguide devices, modulators, photodetectors, optical amplifiers, and lasers) and their use in subsystems and systems
  • Hands-on experience with commercial photonic simulation and modeling tools (e.g., mode solvers, EME, FDTD), photonic design and layout software (e.g., Cadence Virtuoso, Luceda IPKISS, Tanner L-Edit, Synopsys OptoDesigner), and photonic characterization equipment and techniques
  • Practical experience in PIC design and tape-out processes
  • Experience of fabricating photonic components and PICs using hands-on cleanroom processing
