A PhD project to begin in late 2008 to early 2009 is available in the UQ Quantum Optics Lab in the area of advanced single molecule biosensing and biomechanics. This PhD project will focus primarily on developing a new ultrasensitive technique to monitor single small biomolecules in real time. This technique will be applied to study molecular dynamics of biologically relevant kinetic molecules. Ultrahigh quality integrated optical microresonators offer, in principle, a far more sensitive method to monitor such systems than any currently available.

A PhD project in optical microresonator based quantum opto-mechanical systems is available at the UQ Quantum Optics lab, to begin in late 2008 or early 2009. This project will experimentally investigate macroscopic mechanical systems in the never-before-observed quantum regime. These systems have the potential to test our understanding of quantum physics and the physical world; to provide new quantum technologies applicable to advanced computing and communication systems; and to enable ultrasensitive sensing technologies.

A postdoctoral research fellowship is available in the Queensland Quantum Optics Laboratory. The successful candidate will work with PhD students on the development of quantum technologies based on integrated optical microresonators. These will include quantum opto-mechanical systems (QOMS) based on radiation pressure coupling of mechanical and optical degrees of freedom, advanced single molecule biosensors, and fibre coupled integrated quantum information networks.

Postdoc: Postdoctoral Position in Theoretical Condensed Matter and Quantum Information

At
University of Salerno - Department of Mathematics and Informatics, Quantum Theory Group

Field(s):

condensed matter, optics and optoelectronics, quantum mechanics, theoretical physics

This fellowship is a full-time three-year fixed-term fellowship funded under the recently established Perimeter Institute — Australia Foundations (PIAF) partnership. The Australian side involves Griffith University, the University of Queensland, and the University of Sydney. The successful applicant will be based at Griffith University in Brisbane, but will be supported to spend three months per year visiting other partners, split between Sydney and the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Canada.
