PhD Candidate / Early Stage Researcher Photonics

At ARC we research in fields like sensors, robotics or drones, cybersecurity, digital manufacturing, biotechnology, artificial intelligence, quantum computing,…...

ARQUIMEA Research Center(ARC) is a private R&D center which relies on a product-oriented strategy, market diversification and internationalization to achieve a sustainable growth with the calling of developing ideas and getting involved in projects with a high impact in society.

We have as much passions as technologies we develop. But there is only one that we enjoy more than the rest: passion for people. We are a team of specialists and researchers pursuing the highest exponent of technology and science.

  • Our search is to find new projects that stimulate our day-to-day.
  • Our challenge is to attract talent that shares our worldview.

At ARC we research in fields like sensors, robotics or drones, cybersecurity, digital manufacturing, biotechnology, artificial intelligence, quantum computing, nanotechnology and blockchain.

We like to surround ourselves with digital nomads to assemble solid teams, specialized in each of our technologies. We trust people as much as we trust progress if it is accompanied by skills and attitude. Furthermore, our center is located in Canary Islands (Tenerife), where is impossible to have a negative attitude. We have soft weather, ocean and so much technology.

We like to think of talent as a five-pointed star that brings light and value to the center and we want bold, creative, proactive, efficientand humble people in our team.
