Post-doctoral Position in ICFO – The Institute of Photonic Sciences, Spain
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
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.
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
