Open Postdoc position in Nonlinear Squeezed Oscillators       

Department of Optics, Palacky University, Olomouc, Czech Republic

Start: at any time before January 1, 2019  

End: December 31, 2020

We are seeking a Postdoc in theoretical quantum optics and quantum engineering, specifically, for a running project of the Czech Science Foundation on preparation, characterisation and applications of nonlinear squeezed states of oscillators.  

The theoretical work of Postdoc will be focused on the development of experimentally feasible applications of nonlinear squeezed states of light, mechanical oscillators and superconducting electric circuits in quantum communication, quantum simulations, quantum computing and quantum metrology. Theoretical proposals will be developed towards possible experimental tests in collaboration with a partner labs. Our research runs in a friendly, collaborative and very international academic environment, including theoretical and experimental physicists in quantum optics, quantum communication, quantum optomechanics, quantum thermodynamics, physics of trapped ions and particles, theoretical and experimental quantum information and classical optics. Postdoc position will be in collaboration with a junior PhD student. 

Position summary: Full-time temporary employment. The position is limited to a maximum of two years. An extension is conditionally possible. Salary is monthly 38.000-42.000 CZK before tax and social/health insurance. 


• PhD Degree in Physics, Applied Physics, Applied Mathematics, or equivalent

• fluency in English, oral and written

Important experience:

• quantum physics   

Helpful experiences (at least two):                     

• quantum optics, quantum optomechanics, superconducting electric circuits, quantum computing, quantum metrology, quantum communication, quantum simulations  

Contact Prof. Dr Radim Filip (filip [at] optics [dot] upol [dot] cz) directly by email. Include CV, two references and PhD thesis. The application deadline is May 31, 2018. However, apply immediately. An extension is possible if no candidate is accepted.
