Centre for Quantum Technologies, National University of Singapore Singapore

The positions are 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 projects will study how quantum optical systems could be used to understand the behavior of complex condensed matter systems like insulators and superconductors and in implementing quantum computation.

More specifically the systems analyzed will involve circuit quantum electrodynamics set ups, hot and cold atomic gases interacting with light fields (slow light quantum optics), and integrated photonic waveguide arrays for QIP and quantum emulations.

Candidates should have excellent records of undergraduate studies in Physics with an in depth knowledge of quantum mechanics. Exposure in research projects in quantum optics and/or AMO physics (or an equivalent MSc diploma in these areas), will be a plus, as also experience in either Fortran, MatLab, or Mathematica.

The current group consists of four postdocs 2 PhD students. We are in close contact with other theory and experimental groups in CQT and have ongoing collaboration with groups in Europe and the US. These PhD positions will be CQT based with opportunities to visit the corresponding collaborators' groups. The positions are fully funded.
