theoretical quantum optics

We are looking for for a postdoctoral researcher (2 years) with a background in quantum optics or strong field physics and a strong interest in interdisciplinary research. The key aim of the project “Strong field physics with nonclassical light fields” is to investigate the interaction of strong, nonclassical light fields with matter. The successful applicant is expected to apply and develop numerical and analytical methods of theoretical quantum optics to describe light-matter interactions with large photon numbers.

Two postdoc positions in the area of quantum network implementations are available in Christoph Simon’s theoretical quantum optics group at the University of Calgary (see Topics of particular relevance for the two positions include quantum memories for light, quantum repeaters, and microwave-to-optical quantum transduction.

Six PhD positions in theoretical quantum optics and quantum information science are available at the Centre for Quantum Optical Technologies (QOT) at the University of Warsaw. Successful candidates will work in a diverse environment including theorists and experimentalists on fundamental properties of quantum systems, such as quantum coherence and entanglement, and their applications in quantum technologies, such as quantum metrology, sensing, communication, and computation.

In the process of setting up a new quantum optics theory group, I am searching for outstanding PhD students to work on the following topics
- Quantum simulation with quantum optics setups, in particular of lattice gauge theories
- Design of protocols for measuring entanglement in cold quantum gases
- Theory of quantum many-body systems (non-equilibrium dynamics, periodically driven systems, exotic quantum phases, characterization through entanglement)

PhD position in CQT Singapore in “Quantum computation and quantum simulation with quantum optical systems”

The positions are within the Quantum Optics and Quantum Simulators Group lead by Dr. Dimitris G. Angelakis in the Centre of Quantum Technologies (
