The position is within the Quantum Optics and Quantum Simulators Group lead by Dr. Dimitris G. Angelakis in the Centre of Quantum Technologies (CQT) (http://www.quantumlah.org). The group's research interests span most aspects of theoretical quantum optics and its applications in implementing quantum computation and quantum simulation of many body phenomena.

The Light-Matter Interactions Unit (https://groups.oist.jp/light) at OIST Graduate University on the beautiful island of Okinawa, Japan, is seeking applicants from Europe or the US intersted in applying for a JSPS Postdoctoral Fellowship (http://www.jsps.go.jp/english/e-fellow/postdoctoral_short.html) to work with them.
