At TU/e's Eindhoven Hendrik Casimir Institute (EHCI), we create an environment that allows our people to thrive professionally. Our strong supporting infrastructure will allow you to focus on your research and generate new opportunities for collaboration and growth. We believe we can only be world class if our researchers can excel in the workplace that fosters a supportive and stimulating atmosphere.

EHCI is a place where multiple disciplines come together: photonics, quantum technologies, spintronics, and electronics. Our synergetic work is supported by various seminars, workshops, and retreats. The Eindhoven Brainport region is recognized as one of the most important regions in Europe for high-tech developments by the EU. Regional focus on specific technologies creates specific ecosystems to cooperate and commercialize technologies such as integrated photonics, high-tech systems, and quantum technology.

You’ll be part of a community with state-of-the-art facilities and services to perform cutting-edge research and development in many fields. From our established nanofabrication in Nanolab@TU/e to our photonics circuits and innovative optical communication labs, you will have access to a wide range of technological support.

We believe that professional development goes together with personal development. Therefore, you will also have access to high-quality training programs on general skills and topics related to research and valorization.
