Post-doc in Experimental Quantum Optics

Job type: 


Fellow in Experimental Entangled Photon Systems

One position is available for a postdoctoral fellow to develop robust entangled photon systems.

The team of Alexander Ling is working on space-based quantum communication experiments which involve the operation of entangled photon systems on earth-orbiting satellites. A postdoctoral position is available within the scientific team to lead the development of next generation compact and bright entangled photon systems that can work reliably in robust

The successful candidate will have demonstrated a strong background in the design, building and testing of entangled photon systems and the associated opto-electronic systems. The candidate will be a senior member of the scientific team and will guide junior members in the development process. The candidate will work closely with the technical-support team to ensure that the quantum optics systems can be integrated successfully into satellites.

This position is ideal for a candidate who has a strong scientific background and also interested in deploying quantum systems for real-world applications.
