Job type: 


Application deadline: 

Thursday, September 22, 2022

Research group: 

Seeking a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to join the large and multi-faceted theory group in the Centre for Quantum Dynamics. The primary focus of this role is theoretical research in the project “Heisenberg-limited lasers: building the revolution”. This is a 4-year Discovery Project funded by the Australian Research Council held by me (Prof. Howard Wiseman) and Assoc. Prof. Berry (Macquarie University). The project aims to design and build a revolutionary new type of laser based on a 2020 Nature Physics paper by the two Chief Investigators. This project will advance the theory, both fundamental and applied, in collaboration with Berry, and Dr Mazyar Mirrahimi (INRIA, France). It also aims to demonstrate the basic principles experimentally, in the leading circuit QED laboratory of Dr Benjamin Huard and Dr Audrey Bienfait (ENS-Lyon, France).

Closing date: Thursday, 22nd September 2022 (to be safe). Selection criteria must be addressed.

Starting salary range, including superannuation: 92k -- 117k (AUD)

Duration: 3 years.

Location: Centre for Quantum Dynamics, Griffith University, Brisbane, Australia.

You: Quantum theorist preferably with expertise in circuit QED theory and/or quantum optics (especially nonlinear optics and open quantum systems).
