Duration: 36 months
Expected start date: 1 March 2014
A position for Early Stage Researchers (PhD level) is available within the Marie Curie Initial Training Network “PICQUE-Photonic Integrated Compound Quantum Encoding”  (
PICQUE is an European Commission funded network focused at educating Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) and Experienced Researchers (ERs) involving 10 full partners and 8 associated partners from 7 different European countries, both academic and industrial.
PICQUE ESRs will attend a PhD programme at the corresponding host institution. ESRs and ERs will be seconded at least once during the fellowship at another partner site and will participate to scientific schools, workshops and courses in complementary skills organized within the project (
on chip processing of polarization-encoded photons that are generated from pulsed down-conversion sources
quantum computing applications using multi-photon states on chip
Tasks and methodology:
- generation of multi-photon states
- efficient coupling of multi-photon in and out of integrated circuits
- design of the experimental arrangements
Candidates should be highly motivated to work on quantum optics experiments using single photons and/or entangled multi-photon states. Research topics include: manipulation of multi-photon entanglement for quantum computation and quantum simulation experiments using integrated waveguide technology. The application of interested candidates should include a letter of motivation, a detailed CV and the contact addresses for two references.
