The open PhD position will be to work in the theory group of Professor Cristiano Ciuti, who was recently awarded a European Research Council (ERC) Grant entitled ‘Theory of strongly correlated photonic systems’ (CORPHO).
A suitably qualified and experienced individual is required to carry out independent research in theoretical cold atomic physics. The research is contributing to the efforts of the international MATTERWAVE consortium that aims at building and characterising a guided matter wave interferometer based on cold trapped atoms.
Interdisciplinary Workshop on Quantum Device--towards operation of the quantum information and the quantum computer--2014 is held to aim at attracting the interests of international researchers in interdisciplinary quantum devices such as seen in quantum optics, laser physics, spintronics, superconducting circuits, and quantum dots, etc. We in particular focus on the technology for operation of the quantum information and the quantum computer.
The Faculty of Physics of the University of Vienna announces the position of a
Theoretical Quantum Optics
(full time position under private law, limited to a period of 3 years). The University of Vienna intends to increase the number of women, particularly in high-level positions, and therefore specifically invites applications by women. Among equally qualified applicants women will receive preferential consideration.
This is the one-month's-notice and final reminder that the call for applications for the 2014/15 edition of the Doctoral Programme in the Physics and Mathematics of Information: Foundations of Future Information Technologies (DP-PMI) will close on 18 March 2014 at 14h00 Lisbon time. <!--break-->
The DP-PMI aims at providing advanced curricular and research training in the recent developments and fundamental challenges in information sciences and technologies, namely in:
The study of quantum coherent dynamics is currently one of the most active and exciting areas in physics. It holds the promise for the development of new technologies (quantum computing, quantum metrology,...) and, at the same time, has already delivered insights into the foundations of quantum mechanics. Its fast moving pace, in both theory and experiment, has attracted many young researchers and summer schools have become an integral part of the education and networking of students.
A suitably qualified and experienced individual is required to carry out research on experimental Atomic Physics and Ultracold Bose Fermi mixtures. The research is part <!--break-->
of a project investigating transport and localisation in ultracold quantum gases, especially a caesium BEC with lithium impurities. Candidates must have a PhD in physics <!--break-->
and experience with experimental manipulation of ultracold atomic gases, atomic physics and quantum optics. They should be confident, have good communication skills <!--break-->
The PhD fellow will work on the theory of cavity quantum electrodynamics of resonators embedding high-mobility 2D electron gases (both massive electrons in semiconductors and Dirac fermions in graphene).
The fellowship is funded by the Marie-Curie Initial Training Network (ITN) NOTEDEV and offers a very attractive salary and mobility allowances. <!--break-->
