We are seeking a highly motivated and enthusiastic researcher with an excellent record of publications in the research areas of quantum optics and nano-photonics. The main goal of the research is to develop nano-structured dielectric metasurfaces for tailored transformation and generation of few-photon entangled quantum states. The project work will involve both experimental investigations and theoretical modelling. The initial term is 1-year, with a potential extension subject to performance and availability of external funding.
Palacky University in Olomouc, Czech Republic, announces a postdoctoral position in the field of quantum information theory. Applicants are welcome with a background in either of the following (or related) fields:
- estimation theory,
- quantum communication,
- quantum criptography,
- quantum optomechanics,
- interferometry with active elements.
The competition is open to persons who meet the conditions set out in Article 113 of the Act of 20 July 2018 - Law on higher education and science (Journal of Laws of 2018, item 1668) and the following qualification criteria:
1. required: a doctorate in physics or a closely related field,
2. required: a growing record of publications in atomic physics,
3. preferred: computer programming skills or electronic engineering skills
Applications are invited for a postdoc position based in the School of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Nottingham. The successful candidate will carry out experimental research and technological development of quantum sensors. The specific research focus is the demonstration of atom interferometric rotation sensing within the programme A-Phi – Atomic Photonic Integration, funded by DARPA. Preparation of scientific publications, assistance in the supervision of younger colleagues, and project reporting are also part of the responsibilities.
