PhD opportunity at the Quantum Technology group at Queen's (

A number of fully funded 3-year PhD studentships (DEL and EPSRC) are available at the Centre for Theoretical Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics (CTAMOP), Queen's University Belfast.

QTeQ has made available at least 3 projects to work on topics of quantum information processing under the supervision of Dr. G. De Chiara, Dr. A. Ferraro, and Dr. M. Paternostro.

Interested students are prompted to visit CTAMOP website

We offer two PhD/Post-Doc positions, available immediately, at the newly created Center for Optical Quantum Technologies (ZOQ). In a vibrant, communicative environment, we study a wide range of quantum phenomena, from technological aspects of ultra-cold atom systems to fundamental questions of many-body theory. We use both analytical approaches, e.g. field-theoretic descriptions, as well as numerical methods, such as simulations.

Doctoral Fellowships in the
"Vienna Doctoral Program on Complex Quantum Systems"
The “Vienna Doctoral Program on Complex Quantum Systems (CoQuS)" is a graduate program funded by the FWF, and jointly hosted and supported by the University of Vienna and the Vienna University of Technology, Austria.

The CoQuS Program announces new openings for highly qualified doctoral/graduate students in experimental and theoretical quantum physics, with a strong emphasis on
• Fundamental tests of physics
• Quantum information concepts and implementations
• Matter wave interferometry: foundatio

Applications are invited for a fully funded PhD research fellowship in theoretical physics in the Quantum Light and Matter Group, at the University of Southampton.

The position starts November 2012 and it will deal with investigations of light-matter interaction in confined geometries. Three thematics that will be susceptible to be object of investigation will be:

THz lasing from symmetry breaking: arXiv:1204.4053
Ultrastrong light-matter coupling: arXiv:1209.5273, arXiv:1111.2486
Quantum optomechanics: arXiv:1011.6295

Application deadline: 

Wednesday, October 31, 2012

The applicant will work on an experimental project involving the production and characterization of single defects in nanodiamonds and single crystal diamond for quantum-enabled sensors. The focus will be to study a specific defect in diamond such as the nitrogen vacancy (NV) centre. The aim will be to improve diamond material for NV spin coherence properties optimization via chemical vapor deposition of diamond and nanodiamonds. The improved material will be used to implement practical magnetic field sensing at the nanoscale.
