ASP's teaching staff is rooted in four different departments within the university, namely the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy, the Faculty of Chemical and Earth Sciences, the Faculty of Biological Sciences, and the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Sciences. As such, the ASP faculty is comprised of professors of different academic backgrounds, providing a diverse learning experience for the Master's degree program.

Listed below are all eligible supervisors for the mandatory practical courses in the M.Sc. Photonics, such as the modules Internship and Research Labwork as first supervisors. Mostly, these individuals are professors ("Hochschullehrer") of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena who are leading a research group in optics and photonics, and thus also offer toptics for the module Master's Thesis Project.

For additional information on potential second supervisors, please visit www.acp.uni-jena.de/people.
