The position is within the Quantum Optics and Quantum Simulators Group lead by Dr. Dimitris G. Angelakis in the Centre of Quantum Technologies (CQT) ( The group's research interests span most aspects of theoretical quantum optics and its applications in implementations of quantum computation and quantum simulations. The advertised PhD project will focus on how quantum optical systems could be used to understand the behavior of complex condensed matter systems, simulate and test exotic quantum field theories in an optical laboratory and in implementing quantum computation. Emphasis will be given in studying realizations of quantum simulators in driven-dissipative quantum optical platforms The systems to be studied will include superconducting circuits,  strongly confined light fields interacting with atoms, and integrated nano-photonic chips. 

The candidate should have an excellent undergraduate record, especially in quantum mechanics related courses, and ideally have knowledge of quantum optics and quantum information or condensed matter. Exposure in AMO physics at the level of an MSc course will be a plus, as also experience in programming in Fortran/C/C++, MatLab, or Mathematica. The ability to work in a collaborative environment is encouraged.

 The position will be CQT based with opportunities to visit collaborating groups in Europe and the US. The position is fully funded with a competitive scholarship and include a travel grant and funds to buy a computer and books.

The position is available as soon as possible and we accept applications until a suitable candidate is found. Applications should be sent by email to They should contain a detailed CV,  letter of motivation (1 page),  your complete undergraduate transcript and one report from an undergraduate project that you have done. The emails of two faculty who have supervised you in an undergraduate project should also be provided.
