3 PhD Scholarships in ultra-cold atomic gases and quantum information (Experimental Physics).

We invite applications to join our research effort in the area of ultra-cold atomic gases.
The project aims towards the development of a chip based system suitable for applications
for quantum information processing including the generation of Bose-Einstein condensates.
The successful applicant will have the opportunity to attend international conferences
in US/Europe/Asia and plays a vital role in the success of the project.

A PhD project to begin in late 2008 to early 2009 is available in the UQ Quantum Optics Lab in the area of advanced single molecule biosensing and biomechanics. This PhD project will focus primarily on developing a new ultrasensitive technique to monitor single small biomolecules in real time. This technique will be applied to study molecular dynamics of biologically relevant kinetic molecules. Ultrahigh quality integrated optical microresonators offer, in principle, a far more sensitive method to monitor such systems than any currently available.

A PhD project in optical microresonator based quantum opto-mechanical systems is available at the UQ Quantum Optics lab, to begin in late 2008 or early 2009. This project will experimentally investigate macroscopic mechanical systems in the never-before-observed quantum regime. These systems have the potential to test our understanding of quantum physics and the physical world; to provide new quantum technologies applicable to advanced computing and communication systems; and to enable ultrasensitive sensing technologies.

A postdoctoral research fellowship is available in the Queensland Quantum Optics Laboratory. The successful candidate will work with PhD students on the development of quantum technologies based on integrated optical microresonators. These will include quantum opto-mechanical systems (QOMS) based on radiation pressure coupling of mechanical and optical degrees of freedom, advanced single molecule biosensors, and fibre coupled integrated quantum information networks.
