PhD positions at the Centre for Quantum Optical Technologies in Warsaw

Job type: 

Application deadline: 

Monday, November 26, 2018

Summary:
Six PhD positions in theoretical quantum optics and quantum information science are available at the Centre for Quantum Optical Technologies (QOT) at the University of Warsaw. Successful candidates will work in a diverse environment including theorists and experimentalists on fundamental properties of quantum systems, such as quantum coherence and entanglement, and their applications in quantum technologies, such as quantum metrology, sensing, communication, and computation.

Profile of the candidates:
PhD candidates should have a master degree in physics or a related area, and have a good understanding of physics, quantum theory, and quantum optics.

We offer:
The PhD projects will be performed at the Centre for Quantum Optical Technologies (QOT), hosted by the Centre of New Technologies (CeNT) of the University of Warsaw. We offer an open and friendly research environment with access to all the facilities available within the Centre of New Technologies―an interdisciplinary research institute established within the University of Warsaw to gather international researchers of different backgrounds and experience, in order to conduct state-of-the-art research in biological, chemical and physical sciences.

Successful candidates will work within one of the theoretical labs operating within the QOT centre, yet in close collaboration with centre’s theoretical and experimental groups, as well as other research teams specialising in quantum theory and its implementations within Warsaw’s research community: http://quantum-warsaw.pl.
