Postdoctoral Position in Experimental Quantum Optics / AMO Physics

Job type: 

Application deadline: 

Tuesday, April 30, 2019

Research group: 

Weitz group, Bonn University

The quantum optics group (Prof. M. Weitz) at the University of Bonn invites applications for a postdoctoral position. Our research interests include:

- quantum gases of light in optical microresonators. Our group was the worldwide first to demonstrate Bose-Einstein condensation of photons, using a dye-solution filled optical microresonator. We are currently, among other work, trapping photons in periodic lattice potentials.

- quantum physics of ultra-cold atomic gases. With an atomic erbium Bose-Einstein condensate, we are working to realize fractional quantum Hall physics with a cold atom system.

- redistribution laser cooling of dense atomic gases.

For more information on our research, see our website. We are looking for candidates with an excellent PhD in the field of experimental quantum/AMO physics. The position (TVL 13, 100%) is offered for two years, with an extension being possible. For candidates a few years after PhD in principle the position could also be filled on a senior scientist level.

Applicants should send their application to: martin.weitz [at] uni-bonn [dot] de including a cover letter, curriculum vitae, publication list, and names and contact addresses of three references.

The University of Bonn is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Preferences will be given to a suitably qualified woman or persons with disabilities, all other considerations being equal.
