De Koninck, Adamantidis, Vallée, Côté).  Requirements for the position:

  • Excellent practical knowledge of fibres  (e.g., fiber coupling, fiber splicing, connectors and selection criteria). 
  • Knowledge and interest in detection and data acquisition (photodetectors in general but PMTs and photodiodes (avalanche or not) in particular).
