Postdoctoral position on theory of continuously monitored quantum sensors (Warsaw, PL)

The successful candidate will work on the following or akin research topics depending on her/his interests and experience in analytic or numerical analysis within the quantum information and quantum optics theory:

  1. quantum dynamical models of atomic magnetometers and optomechanical devices measured continuously with light.
  2. quantum inference methods and simulations (quantum trajectories, Monte-Carlo) of optomechanical and atomic sensors operating in real time with applications and analysis of current experiments.
  3. development of software statistical-inference and signal-processing tools (Bayesian filtering, compressed sensing, machine learning) for them to be compatible with (real-time) quantum sensing tasks.

The work will be conducted under the supervision of Jan Kolodynski, however, in close collaboration (long-term visits, also to experimental teams, are fully supported financially and encouraged) with other members of the C’MON-QSENS! Consortium:

  • Klaus Mølmer (Aarhus University, DK)
  • John Calsamiglia (Autonomous University of Barcelona, ES)
  • Yonina Eldar (Weizmann Institute of Science, IL)
  • Witlef Wieczorek (Chalmers University of Technology, SE)
  • Kasper Jensen (University of Nottingham, UK)

Profile of the candidate:
Candidates should have a PhD degree in physics or a related area, with a background in quantum optics or quantum information processing. The degree should have been obtained not earlier than 7 years before the employment in the project. Familiarity with the theory of atom-light interactions and/or the formalism of continuous-time quantum measurements including (quantum) stochastic calculus or, in case of more software-biased profile, experience in implementing signal-processing and data inference tools with quantum applications will be appreciated, but are not essential.

Application deadline:
31 July 2021

Expected starting date:
1 September 2021 (or later)
