AU International Postdoctoral Positions in Theoretical Quantum Optics

  • PHD
  • Salary
  • 5 October 2020

The Department of Physics and Astronomy, Aarhus University, Denmark invites applications for a postdoc position in the field of theoretical quantum optics.

Starting Date and Period
The position is for 18 months and is available from January 1, 2021, or as soon as possible hereafter.

Job description
We are seeking applicants for a postdoc position in theoretical quantum optics. The successful candidate will work in a small team and contribute to research on quantum optical processes in interacting many-body systems. Specific projects include collective phenomena and nonlinear optical process in regular arrangements of quantum emitters as well as light propagation through quantum gases and thermal vapor, in which strong particle interactions can arise from low-energy atomic collisions or optical excitation to high lying atomic Rydberg states. This work will further involve the exploration of applications to generate and analyze non-classical states of light, as well as close collaborations with experimental groups.
