The University of Strathclyde's Institute of Photonics, in association with the UK's first Fraunhofer Research Centre, Fraunhofer CAP, seeks applications for a Fraunhofer Research Fellowship in Advanced Lasers for Quantum Technologies. This post, supported by both Fraunhofer and the recently funded UK National Quantum Technology Hub in Sensors and Metrology, will suit a candidate with several years' post-doctoral experience in advanced laser instrumentation and metrology, ideally linked to the practical implementation of quantum measurement systems. The appointee will have a strong track record of relevant research as demonstrated by publications in major scientific journals. He/she will join the existing group of Dr Jennifer Hastie and Prof Alan Kemp at the Institute of Photonics, Department of Physics. Dr Hastie is the Strathclyde lead investigator for the UK National Quantum Technology Hub in Sensors and Metrology. The group has an international reputation in areas including optically-pumped semiconductor lasers and diamond lasers, is a major partner in the Quantum Technology Hub and forms a key interface between the University and Fraunhofer. The appointee will work closely with, and be supported by, colleagues in the Fraunhofer CAP to ensure maximum delivery of impact from his/her work.
