MS, PhD and Post Doc Studentships at Bilkent University, Turkey

Deadline: contact the professor (to start the course in October 2011)

1. MS and PhD Studentship at Bilkent University, Turkey

The Research Group of Dr. Ilday is seeking for highly motivated and skilled students to join the Group's research program. Several MS or PhD positions are available:

(1) We are working on the development of high-power fiber lasers, particularly generation of ultrashort pulses. This research effort includes several industrial partners.

(2) Another project concerns ultrafast material processing, including pulsed laser deposition, using the lasers we develop. This affords us some unique advantages, benefiting directly from the laser development expertise within the group, allowing us to custom-tailor the laser to the application and go into uncharted parameter ranges.

(3) We have an effort exploring applications of mode-locked lasers to biology, particularly sub-cellular (nano)surgery. One of the targeted application areas is neuroscience and the project is a collaboration with biologists and medical doctors.

Further information on the Group's broad range of research activities, substantial research infrastructure, recent publications and current members can be obtained from within our website. All nationalities can apply. The language of education and research at Bilkent University is English.

Eligibility and Conditions:In order to pursue a MS or PhD degree in the Research Group of Dr. Ilday, the candidate must apply and be admitted to the MS or PhD graduate program of Bilkent University and successfully complete the first semester of the required graduate course work. For formal application requirements, consult here. Candidates are asked to explain motivation for joining Dr. Ilday's Group and mention any experience in lasers or a related area in their research statement letters. Candidates holding a master degree, who can be admitted to the PhD program directly, will be preferred.

Support:Successful candidates will be supported through a fellowship that includes a generous monthly stipend, waiver of the tuition fee, health insurance and in most cases (depending on availability) on-campus accommodation.

2. Postdoctoral Position at Bilkent University, Turkey

We are looking for a highly motivated young scientist who wishes to enhance his/her scientific career in a dynamic research group to work on a femtosecond fiber laser-microscope system, which is mainly constructed for nanosurgery applications and more specifically for identification and manipulation of networks of neurons in vitro. The appointment will be in the Group of Dr. F. O. Ilday and the postdoc will join an interdisciplinary team of researchers with expertise in ultrafast optics, nonlinear dynamics, molecular biology and genetics.

Eligibility and Conditions:Prospective candidates should have a PhD in a related field. The core competency of the postdoc should be neurophysiology/neurobiology in vitro, including patch clamp recording and imaging. The ideal candidate, not essentially but ideally, should possess quantitative skills in nonlinear dynamics in neuroscience or be interested in training in physical or the biological sciences. The candidate will have the opportunity to be acquainted with a wide range of ongoing applications of ultrafast lasers and molecular biology studies within the Group. There is no citizenship is requirement and salary is competitive and commensurate with the degree of experience. Bilkent University is an English-speaking university. Candidates are requested to submit a brief statement of interests, a Curriculum Vita, and the contact information of three references via email to .

3. Postdoctoral Position at Bilkent University, Turkey

The Ultrafast Optics and Lasers Group, led by Dr. Ilday, is seeking a highly motivated young scientist who wishes to enhance his/her scientific career in a dynamic research group. The position regards development of high-power, ultra-low noise Er-doped fiber amplifiers. The project target development of fiber laser-based sources, bringing together techniques from optical metrology and femtosecond frequency combs for eventual application to coherent sensing applications. The candidate will have the opportunity to participate in a wide range of ongoing applications of fiber lasers. For a brief description of the ongoing research activities, visit the research page.

Eligibility and Conditions:Prospective candidates should have a PhD in a related field. Prior experience with at least one of the following is mandatory: (i) fiber lasers, (ii) high-power solid state lasers, (iii) frequency combs. There is no citizenship requirement. The position is available beginning April 2010. Salary is competitive and depends on degree of experience. Bilkent University's working language is English. Candidates are requested to submit a brief statement of interests, a Curriculum Vitae, and the contact information of three references via email to .
