PhD

Quantum Gases and Quantum Information Group at the University of Amsterdam is looking for a talented PhD student to work on '''Nanoscale magnetic trap arrays: quantum simulators on an atom chip'''. The advertisement text can be downloaded at http://www.science.uva.nl/research/aplp/atomchips/oio-advert-jan2011.pdf

A three-year PhD scholarship within the field of quantum sensing is available at the Department of Physics at the Technical University of Denmark. The topic of the project is the theoretical and experimental investigation of a micro-cavity on a chip for the generation of quantum light to be used for sensing. The project is a part of an international collaboration with the Max-Planck institute for the science of light in Germany and Queensland University in Australia.
