International research mobility

The Abbe School of Photonics has developed a network of international academic partnerships, which, not only connects us to leaders and decision-makers in photonics all over the world, but also enables our doctoral and postdoctoral researchers to embark on short- and long-term research visits to our partner institutions. Such visits abroad allow our doctoral candidates to gain experience in another research environment and to improve their language skills. From a scientific and technological point of view, the use of the infrastructure of the host institution very often offers new possibilities for measurements and experimental work.These opportunities for research stays abroad guarantee a truly international doctoral research experience and are, therefore, highly recommended for every single doctoral track. Practically all doctoral researchers in our program are eligible to participate in different exchange schemes. Currently, the following mobilities are being funded:

Research visits at the Australian National University in Canberra, Australia

The Australian National University (ANU), one of the most prestigious Universities in the world, has built an active cooperation in various fields of physics and photonics with ACP/ASP for more than 20 years. Our common, very successful research efforts are substantiated by numerous joint projects and a one-of-a-kind joint science track record. This partnership has helped many ANU and ACP scientists to work and teach at their respective partner institution for durations between a few weeks up to several years. Such exchanges of scientific staff at all career levels were based on various mobility funding schemes over the years. Currently, different travel and research visit schemes are available for doctoral candidates. To inquire about your eligibility, please contact [CH1] Prof. Isabelle Staude () or Prof. Thomas Pertsch ().

Research visits at the National Taiwan University

For many years, ASP has fostered a vivid exchange of researchers, ideas, and projects in the field of nanophotonics with the National Taiwan University and the National Central University, both located in Taipeh. To inquire about your options for participating in this program, and for more information on short and long-term research stays in Taipeh, please approach Dr. Frank Setzpfandt ().

Research and teaching visits at the University of Bordeaux, France

Not only does our partnership with the University of Bordeaux and the LAPHIA Cluster of Excellence in Photonics benefit our Master’s degree students, but it also offers exciting opportunities for our doctoral candidates: We offer one-week long research and teaching visits in Bordeaux, which are funded by our Erasmus+ program.

 

To inquire about your options as an ACP scientist or lecturer for researching or teaching opportunities in Bordeaux, please contact Prof. Christian Spielmann ().

Research visits in Toronto, Montréal or Québec City in Canada

Based on the long-term cooperation and the deep roots established by our DFG-funded International Research Training Group (IRTG) 2101 "Guided light, tightly packed", we are still able to provide and organized flexible and on-demand research stays with our Canadian partners:

 

Research trusts and topics with our Canadian partners may include, but are not limited to, optical waveguides, fibers, and related technologies to confine and control light in ultra-compact devices. If you are interested in these opportunities, please contact Dr. Anna Späthe ().

Research and teaching visits at the Delft Technical University in The Netherlands

Building on our Erasmus+ program for mobilities on Master’s degree level with the Technical University in Delft, we offer opportunities for one-week long Eramsus+ funded research and teaching trips to our doctoral candidates. To inquire about your options for research or teaching in Delft as an ACP scientist, please contact Dr. Christian Helgert ().
