The Vienna Doctoral Program on Complex Quantum Systems invites applications for PhD fellowships.
The Vienna Doctoral Program on Complex Quantum Systems (CoQuS) is a training center for more than 40 students who are selected from an international pool of applicants, based on their academic excellence, scientific success and ambition.
Research in CoQuS covers experimental and theoretical quantum physics:
Applications from Indian nationals are invited for the following positions (initially for 1 year) under the project “Topology, quantum computation and spintronics with Dirac materials” in the School of Physical Sciences, NISER funded by DST Nanomisssion, Govt. of India.
1. RESEARCH ASSOCIATE:
Qualification - Candidate should have Ph.D degree in Physics (or, should have submitted the thesis), preferably in theory. Fellowship: Rs.24,000+HRA (as per DST norms) per month. Age: Maximum 35 years as on last date of application.
We are looking for a suitable candidate to carry out a PhD thesis in our group working with ion traps and lasers to perform precision experiments with laser-cooled Ca+ ions in a Paul and in a Penning trap. The selected candidate will work on running a Paul-trap experiment to perform side-band cooling on a single Ca+ ion, using diode lasers and a Ti:Sa laser. He/she will participate in the development of a device referred to as Quantum Sensor in the framework of the project TRASPENSOR funded by the European Research Council.
