Study with Us
We are currently seeking exceptional postdoctoral fellows and doctoral students to join us in our unique, collaborative research environment.
Doctoral students and postdoctoral fellows who join the CUNY ASRC Photonics Initiative will have opportunities to explore wave interactions with emergent materials; find boundaries through fundamental theoretical and experimental work in our new, state-of the-art facilities; and push those boundaries to find widespread applications in communications, energy and heat management, life sciences, and sensing.
To join the ASRC Photonics Initiative, doctoral students must first matriculate into a Ph.D. program in physics, chemistry, electrical engineering, or a related field. CUNY offers a number of excellent programs in these areas. These include:
- Ph.D. Program in Physics at The Graduate Center, CUNY, which now offers a track in photonics (More information below.)
- Ph.D. Program in Chemistry at The Graduate Center, CUNY
- Ph.D. Program in Electrical Engineering at The City College of New York
To apply to or learn more about these programs, we invite you to contact the schools directly.
For more information about working with the CUNY ASRC Photonics Initiative, reach out to Diana Strickland at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NEW: The Graduate Center, CUNY Now Offers a Doctoral Degree With a Photonics Track
This track offers high-impact research opportunities with faculty leading the photonics field. Current research spans topics in electromagnetics, from radio to light waves; plasmonics and excitonics; ultrafast and quantum optics; nanophotonic materials; optomechanics; and more.
