Postdoctoral position on quantum metrology with atomic sensors: theory (Warsaw, PL)

Quantum Information and Inference laboratory (QI2-lab) led by Jan Kolodynski offers a postdoctoral position within the project C'MON-QSENS! (Continuously Monitored Quantum Sensors: Smart Tools and Applications) funded by QuantERA EU programme. The appointment will be for a two years term, (possibly) renewable for a third year.

Project details:
The successful candidate will work on novel quantum dynamical models of hot (also multi-species) atomic spin-ensembles. In case of candidate’s inclination towards numerical analysis and her/his software-development experience, the project may also involve preparation of numerical simulations (quantum trajectories, Monte-Carlo) of sensors’ operation in real time, as well as development of data-interference and signal-processing tools necessary. Collaboration with experimental groups will be mandatory.

The candidate will also work in close collaboration with other members of the C’MON-QSENS! consortium:
- Kasper Jensen (University of Nottingham, UK)
- Witlef Wieczorek (Chalmers University of Technology, SE)
- Klaus Mølmer (Aarhus University, DK)
- John Calsamiglia (Autonomous University of Barcelona, ES)
- Yonina Eldar (Weizmann Institute of Science, IL)

Profile of the candidate:
Candidates should have a PhD degree in physics or a related area, with background in quantum optics and/or atomic, molecular and optical physics. The degree must have been obtained not earlier than 7 years before the employment in the project.

10 000 PLN of full remuneration cost, i.e. expected net salary at 6000-7000 PLN (~1600 EUR). Applications for extra independent scholarships of Polish funding bodies will be encouraged and supported.

Application deadline:
7 May 2021

Expected starting date:
1 June 2021 or later
