The University operates in the form of a foundation and has a long-standing tradition of collaboration with other research institutions and industry. Many of the fields of research and study represented at the University play a key role in addressing global challenges. Internationality is an integral part of all our activities. Welcome to join us at TUT!
Tenure Track Position in Optics and PhotonicsOptics and Photonics underpins much of modern science and knowledge-intensive technology. This area is one of the strongest research areas of TUT and was promoted to one of its profile areas in the recently updated University Strategy. The area also scored full points in the TUT-wide research evaluation in 2017. Research in Optics and Photonics at TUT will be further strengthened by opening new tenure-track positions during 2018-2020.
Our vision is that the next revolution in photonics will rely on new advanced light sources, on exquisite control of light fields, as well as on new materials with tailorable and tunable optical properties. Advances in these fields will provide new capabilities in the future for multiple application areas such as medicine, communication, solar energy and monitoring of the environment.
