Palacky University in Olomouc, Czech Republic, announces a postdoctoral position in the field of quantum metrology and sensing. The main objective of the project is to develop new techniques or use the existing state-of-the-art methods in quantum metrology to some physical applications, such as quantum communication, quantum optomechanics, or interferometry with active elements. Applicants are welcome with a background in estimation theory or metrology/sensing or in any of the mentioned fields of application.

Candidates must hold a Ph.D. in physics or a relevant field of study, ideally have a strong background in theoretical quantum physics and be capable of efficiently communicating in English. The appointed contract period is up to the end of 2021 (with a possibility of extention), with a monthly salary of 40,000-50,000 CZK before tax (that is, up to ca. 2,000 EUR/month, with considerably lower living costs than in Western Europe).
