Positions

Graduate Students
We are looking for strong and motivated students who are interested in experimental work on Photonics and Microwave Photonics! If you are interested in our research, please read the flyer or contact us (mfok@uga.edu) to learn more about our laboratory. More admission information can be found here.

Undergraduate Students
We offer UGA undergraduate students the opportunity to participate in our research. Preference is given to individuals who are responsible, organized, and committed to working on projects in the lab. Students from other institutions can participate in summer research in our lab through the National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates Program.

Minority Participate
We are a member of the Peach State LSAMP! The Peach State Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (Peach State LSAMP) aims to significantly increase the number of underrepresented minority students statewide who complete undergraduate degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. Peach State LSAMP is a National Science Foundation (NSF) sponsored program with the mission to significantly increase the number of underrepresented minorities pursuing degrees Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).

Young Dawgs
Young dawgs who join our lab will have the opportunity to learn how photonics improves our quality of communications, how a photonics neuron mimic the behavior of a biological neuron, and how photonics techniques is used to enhance security of a wireless system. Besides hands on experience on research projects, students will learn how to automatically control high-end equipments and instrument in a photonics and microwave lab. One of the fun part of being in our lab is to put your hands on a number of optics related science projects specially designed for young dawgs. You are welcome to take some of them home as a souvenir!

Visiting Scholar/Postdoctoral Scientist
Please contact us if you are interested in visiting scholar/postdoctoral positions on our projects. Strong experimental skill, excellent scientific thinking, mentoring and communication skills are required. Experience in photonics, microwave, and fiber optics is desirable.
