Application deadline: 

Thursday, October 28, 2021

Research group: 

Experimental postdoctoral position in quantum optics

We are seeking to recruit a Postdoctoral Researcher to develop time-resolved quantum metrology approaches for the detection of infrared radiation, working in the Ultrafast Nonlinear Optics Group, led by Matteo Clerici, at the University of Glasgow.
The research will focus on developing a pulsed twin-beam source for time-resolved sub-shot noise differential measurement. The project is in collaboration with industrial partners delivering the balanced detector to be used in the metrology experiments.

Essential requirements:
- A PhD degree in Physics (or similar disciplines) and a strong background in nonlinear and quantum optics.
- Hands-on experience with ultrafast lasers, balanced detection, pump and probe schemes, frequency conversion, and parametric processes.
- Ability to write and use codes for controlling lab instruments via, e.g., Matlab or LabView
- Experience with optoelectronic detectors and with quantum metrology will be valued.

The appointment will be for 1 year with the possibility of extension, pending research funding. The salary is competitive and commensurate with experience.
