ICFO – The Institute of Photonic Sciences (, in collaboration with the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya – BarcelonaTech (UPC), is offering a predoctoral fellowship to well-qualified graduate students who wish to enhance his/her scientific career in a friendly and stimulating environment, as well as to obtain a doctoral degree in any of the photonics-related research fields.

ICFO – The Institute of Photonic Sciences (, a centre based in Barcelona/ Spain, devoted to research and education of the optical and photonic sciences at the highest international level, is looking for a well-qualified and highly motivated young scientist who wishes to enhance his/her scientific career in the field of atomic quantum optics.

We investigate quantum optical and quantum information processes with cold atoms and non-classical light sources, especially quantum processes arising from light-atom interactions. Our main activities are in two related areas: manipulation of cold atomic ensembles, including spin squeezing and generation of atom-light entanglement, and generation of squeezed, entangled, and single-photon states of light at atomic resonance wavelengths.
