PhD Positions in Many-Body Theory of Ultra-cold Atoms
Center for Optical Quantum Technologies, University of Hamburg, Germany
We offer three PhD 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.
The AtomChip Lab (www.bgu.ac.il/atomchip) at Ben-Gurion University (BGU) is searching for high quality candidates in a variety of fields, including, research into chip fabrication for quantum optics chips with atoms, ions and photons, fundamental research into atom optics with cold atoms, and applicative research which we are conducting in collaboration with the high-tech industry into atomic clocks and magnetic sensors with both hot and cold atoms. Our sub-group in theory also has open positions for qualified candidates.
PhD project in quantum information and the foundations of quantum theory.
A fully funded PhD position is available for a UK/EU student, project title "Quantum theory and the nature of time". This position is partially supported by a large grant from the Foundational Questions Institute. The aim is to investigate the connections between the mathematical formalism of quantum theory and facts about time, such as reversibility and irreversibility of physical laws.
