PhD

The Dipolar Quantum Gas group, led by Prof. F. Ferlaino, is inviting applications for two PhD positions and one Postdoctoral position in experimental physics. We are looking for exceptional and highly motivated students and researchers from physics to join us in our ambitious goal of understanding dipolar quantum matter and of realizing Rydberg quantum simulators, based on the novel resources provided by multi-electrons atoms from the rare-earth family.

We are looking for excellent PhD students and postdocs to join our group (www.barzgroup.de) at the University of Stuttgart and the Center for Integrated Quantum Science and Technology (www.iqst.org).

You are interested in:
- Integrated quantum optics and quantum information processing
- International collaborations
- Interdisciplinary research at the intersection of physics, engineering, computer science, mathematics

A fully funded PhD position for EU citizens is offered for a project on “SpeedDemon: Quantum speed limits in thermodynamic processes and coherent control” in the School of Physics, Trinity College Dublin. The work will be supervised by Dr. Steve Campbell. The project will involve the theoretical study of quantum speed limits in a variety of settings, in particular, Markovian and non-Markovian equilibration, thermometry protocols, and information erasure.

In the Physics Department of the University of Cologne, the laboratory of Prof. Yoichi Ando works in the field of topological matter and is trying to realize topological quantum computing. To address this goal, three key elements -- materials synthesis, nanodevice fabrication, and ultra-low-temperature measurements --- are synergistically performed in the same lab. Multiple Postdoc and PhD positions are available within the newly-granted Cluster of Excellence “ML4Q” (Matter and Light for Quantum Computing) as well as the ERC Advanced Grant “MajoranaTopIn”.
