Postdoctoral position in Experimental Quantum Optics/Ultracold atoms - Glasgow

Job type: 

The new group of Prof. Stefan Kuhr at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, invites applications for a Postdoc position. The research project focuses on single-site imaging and manipulation of ultracold atoms in optical lattices. These novel techniques will be used for quantum simulation of strongly correlated many-body systems and for scalable quantum information processing. More information can be found at and by contacting Stefan Kuhr.

''Conditions & Starting date''
This is a full-time position (Grade 7 'Research Associate') opening in Mai 2011. Appointment at a later date is also possible. The initial contract duration is two years, renewable up to a total of four years. Resettlement cost will be covered.

''Qualification and Expertise''
You should hold a PhD in Physics and have a background in quantum optics and ultracold atoms. Technical knowledge on electronics, lasers, vacuum systems and data analysis would be of advantage.

Applications should include a CV with:

* personal information
* education, including full academic track record
* list of publications
* list of talks & poster presentations
* short summary of past research projects
* names and contact addresses of two references

Please send the application directly to Stefan Kuhr (stefan.kuhr (at)
