No you cannot. In order for a player to be offside, that player has to be behind the ball and behind the 2nd to last defender. On a corner kick, there is no way to be behind the ball unless that player goes off of the field.

The restart after an offside infraction is an indirect free kick. A goal may not be scored directly from an indirect free kick.

An player may not be guilty of an offside offense directly from a corner kick. The referee may change their decision about anything until play is restarted.
