Friday, December 7, 2018

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.
This cutting-edge project follows a MW cold atom clock prototype recently completed and delivered to the industry by this lab.
The candidate should have extensive experience in experimental atomic physics.
Ben-Gurion University (~20000 students) is the youngest and fastest growing university in Israel. It is situated in Be’er Sheva in the middle of the Negev desert, a mere hour by train from Tel Aviv and the Mediterranean. The surrounding area includes fascinating desert landscapes with their unique geology, archaeology and wildlife, and a fantastic kaleidoscope of ancient and modern society. For those who love nature and travel, we note that the University is located a short drive from Egypt, Jordan, and Jerusalem, the Dead Sea and the beautiful coral reefs of Eilat on the shores of the Red Sea.
