PhD position in Quantum Photonics at Stockholm University

Job type: 
Application deadline: 
Thursday, January 18, 2018

We seek for a talented and independent graduate student who wishes to develop her/his scientific career in a friendly and stimulating environment. This doctoral degree project will be carried out in the quantum photonics group led by Ana Predojevic (http://qphotonics.fysik.su.se). The successful candidate should have interest in quantum technologies, specifically quantum information and communication.
The project implementation will involve experimental investigation of semiconductor embedded quantum emitters and state-of-the-art photonic structures. The project will focus on novel sources of quantum light and their use in quantum communication protocols.
