Designation/Position- Post-doctoral Position in ICFO

ICFO – The Institute of Photonic Sciences, Spain invites application for Post-doctoral Position in ICFO from eligible and interested candidates

About- ICFO-The Institute of Photonic Sciences is offering a postdoctoral position to a well-qualified, highly motivated and dynamic young scientist who wishes to enhance his/her scientific career in a friendly and stimulating environment.

Research/Job Area- Atomic physics, quantum optics, or related fields

Project Title – Quantum optics of single atoms interacting with single photons

Location- ICFO-The Institute of Photonic Sciences, Barcelona, Spain  

ESQ Postdocs Position 2020 in Erwin Schrödinger Center, Austria

National Research Foundation (NRF) Fellowship in Singapore


Candidates must hold an internationally-recognized Ph.D.-equivalent degree (or evidence of its completion in the nearest future) preferably in in experimental atomic physics, quantum optics, or related fields.

The candidate should have a proven track record of ability to lead a small team of PhD and Master students, coordinate interactions with theory collaborators.

Job/Position Description- 

The successful candidate will be joining Atomic Quantum Optics group led by Prof. Dr. Morgan Mitchell. Building on many years of experience with cold atoms and non-classical light sources, we are developing an experiment to study the interaction of heralded single photons and entangled photon pairs from cavity-enhanced SPDC with individual rubidium atoms trapped at the focus of a high-NA lens.

The experiment aims to study for the first time fundamental light-matter interaction processes at the single-particle level.

Research group is looking for a post-doctoral researcher to lead this activity, building upon a running system that is currently capable of trapping and detecting single rubidium atoms and generation of single-photons and entangled pairs tunable anywhere within the rubidium D1 line.

The contract is offered for periods of one year, renewable

How to Apply- 

The formal application should be submitted online via

Suitable candidates are requested to submit:

  • Presentation letter with a declaration of interest,
  • Curriculum Vitae, including contact details,
