We are currently offering a PhD position in the field of quantum foundations and quantum information theory. The position is associated with the research group of Borivoje Dakic at the Faculty of Physics, University of Vienna, Austria (see https://dakic.univie.ac.at/research/ for research topics). The appointed candidate shall start on 1. 3.

In the framework of a DFG-project, a PhD position is available and to be offered to highly motivated student who intends to enhance her/his scientist carrier in the field of semiconductor quantum optics. She/he should have a high interest in basic experimental research and like working in an interdisciplinary environment. The research will be carried out in the Nano Optics group at the Institute of Nanostructure Technologies and Analytics, INA.

This PhD project is aimed at developing highly sensitive methods for detection of magnetic fields with optically pumped magnetometers. The magnetometer will be based on laser-interrogation of room-temperature cesium or rubidium atomic vapor. The project will include work on designing a prototype magnetometer. Quantum techniques such as spin-squeezing can be used for improving the magnetic field sensitivity. Possible applications of this magnetometer include measuring bio-magnetic signals from the heart or brain.
