The newly created Centre for Quantum Optical Technologies at the University of Warsaw, Poland, seeks to appoint group leaders who will develop ambitious and innovative research effort exploring quantum phenomena, such as superpositions and entanglement, in optical and optically controlled system, with the long-term aim of their practical utilisation. The appointments will include start-up packages with fully funded junior research positions, access to state-of-the-art research infrastructure, and a possibility to apply for equipment upgrades.
The selected candidate will be responsible for designing, building, training, and deploying machine learning models on Xanadu’s cutting-edge specialized quantum computing hardware. As part of our Quantum Machine Learning team, they will participate in multiple aspects of machine learning research and development targeted to near-term quantum devices. Other duties may include the training of traditional (non-quantum) machine learning models for comparison and benchmarking purposes.
The selected candidates will work with our established team of physicists and engineers to build our integrated photonic quantum computation platform based on the continuous variable (CV) approach. They will be involved in all aspects of the quantum hardware system at Xanadu’s lab: design of photonic components, construction of the apparatus, and carrying out key experiments. They will also be responsible for writing patents and peer-reviewed publications describing these devices and experiments. Successful applicants will have a proven track record of accomplishments in experimental quantum optics, having developed during their research careers cutting-edge techniques for the generation, control, and detection of non-classical light.
We invites applications for different positions in experimental or theoretical studies of dark matter detection with optical atomic clocks and in in theoretical/observational inhomogeneous cosmology. The candidate can choose between:

At Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU, Be’er Sheva campus), a new quantum technology lab was recently inaugurated to promote the development of state-of-the-art quantum technology and its transfer to the industry.
One of the projects in this lab is to realize a new atomic optical lattice clock. The project is supervised by Dr. Filippo Levi of INRIM (Italian National Metrology Institute) and Dr. Ron Folman of BGU Israel. We are searching for a project leader to build and run the clock on a long term basis.
