PhD Positions in Quantum Communication

The Group of Applied Physics at the University of Geneva in Switzerland is one of the premier research institutions in the field of Quantum Information Science and Technology. The Quantum Repeater and Memory group led by Dr. Mikael Afzelius and Prof. Nicolas Gisin is inviting motivated people to apply for several open experimental PhD positions.

PhD Position Spin-Orbit Photonics and Quantum Applications (theory)

At: 
Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC), Donostia-San Sebastian, Spain
Deadline: 
19 February, 2017

We announce the opening of a PhD position in the Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC),  Donostia-San Sebastian, Spain. The project addresses theoretical questions at the joint frontier fields of Spin-Orbit Photonics and Quantum Optics, in particular concerning topological and quantum properties of light- and spin-transport in photonic nanostructures. We offer a three-year fully funded contract. Review of the applications will begin after February 19th, 2017 and will continue until the position is filled. The start date would be as early as possible.

PhD positions in molecular quantum nanophotonics

At: 
Universidad Autónoma de Madrid
Deadline: 
28 February, 2017

There are two PhD student positions open to work on Modification of Molecular Structure Under Strong Coupling to Confined Light Modes. This project at the interface of quantum optics, molecular science, and condensed matter physics is financially supported by an ERC Starting Grant running from 2017 to 2022. All applicants should be highly motivated and enjoy working and collaborating closely within an international team.

Phd positions in Cold atoms

At: 
University of Birmingham, UK
Deadline: 
15 August, 2017

The unprecedented control over cold atoms has resulted in extremely precise sensors such as atomic clocks and atom interferometers. Our lab has two main goals, one fundamental science and another technological development. From the scientific point of view, it aims to work on enabling concepts to asking very fundamental questions at the cutting edge of science. Technologically it utilises state-of-the-art methods with the potential to reduce the form factor of atom-based quantum sensors by at least an order of magnitude which would enable a step change towards commercial applications.

A tensor network approach to the quantum many body problem,

The many body problem
-------------------------------------
How is it possible that the same and simple constituent atoms, when joined together, produce such a beautiful and diverse world? One can see this as a consequence of collective emergence, an aspect of physics relevant to several disciplines, from statistical physics to condensed matter, to high energy physics.

This PhD position is available for research in topologically ordered phases and their use in quantum devices and topological quantum computation.

PhD position in the field of nonlinear X-Ray spectroscopy

At: 
Paul Scherrer Institut
Deadline: 
15 February, 2017

With the development of free electron laser (FEL) radiation sources a new area of X-Ray spectroscopy commenced. PSI explores and develops methods for nonlinear coherent optical/X-Ray experiments with the ultimate aim of applying these at the SwissFEL free electron laser facility which is planned to operate by the end of 2017. Within this project the candidate will be involved in experiments that can be performed at the synchrotron, in the Laser-laboratory and at FEL’s that contribute to an advanced understanding of nonlinear X-ray processes.
