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:
- quantum dynamical models of atomic magnetometers and optomechanical devices measured continuously with light.
- 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.
- 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.
