The Quantum Nanophotonics Laboratory at Donostia, in the Material Physics Center (San Sebastian,
Spain) is looking for highly motivated, talented researchers searching exciting opportunities to obtain a
PhD or to continue their research career as a postdoc in the area of Quantum Nanophotonics. The
successful candidates will study both experimentally and theoretically the quantum dynamics of
levitated particles. In particular, the successful candidate(s) will investigate the use of these systems as
magnetic and inertial sensors. The Quantum Nanophotonics group at MPC is collaborating with
renowned international research groups and companies to control the quantum properties of small
material particles.
There are one PhD and one post-doctoral positions available in this research line. The interested
candidates should send an email to gabriel [dot] molina [dot] terriza [at] gmail [dot] com attaching a full CV, a transcript
of the Masters grades and a cover letter, indicating in the Subject, “Application for PhD/Postdoc in
QNano”. Applications not meeting these requirements won’t be considered.
