Several PhD (early stage researcher) and post-doctoral (experienced researcher) positions are available within the Initial Training Network QTea, funded by the Marie Curie Actions under the FP7 People programme of the European Commission.

We are looking for young researchers with a strong interest in applications of atomic and optical quantum physics. The QTea network comprises 10 academic and industrial partners offering a variety of research projects and opportunities for intensive collaboration and medium to long-term secondments (3-11 months).

The scientific focus of the network is the physics of modern quantum sensors based on precision measurements of inertial forces, electro-magnetic fields, and time. The targeted applications are: gravitational probing, rotation sensing, field probes and magnetic surface microscopy, atomic clocks and precision spectroscopy.

The candidates can be of any nationality (European or non-European), but must not have resided or worked in the country of the host institution for more than 12 months in the 3 years prior to the recruitment. All partners are equal opportunities employers and offer family friendly work conditions.
