The Niels Bohr Institute invites applicants for a PhD fellowship in Experimental Quantum Optics at University of Copenhagen, Denmark, 2022

Qualification Details

We are looking for candidates within the field of quantum physics or related areas. Applicants can have any  background within quantum physics but it is a particular advantage to have experience in quantum optics, quantum information and/or optomechanics. To be eligible for the regular PhD programme, you must have completed a degree programme, equivalent to a Danish master’s degree (180 ECTS/3 FTE BSc + 120 ECTS/2 FTE MSc) related to the subject area of the project, e.g. physics. For information of eligibility of completed programmes, see General assessments for specific countries and Assessment database.

Responsibilities/Job Description

The project will be part of the center for Hybrid Quantum Networks, which aims at merging single photons sources with mechanical oscillators for long term quantum memories in quantum networks. The present project will be within experimental quantum optics with the goal of developing novel multi-photon entanglement sources for photonic quantum computing applications.

About the Department/Section/Group

The  PhD project will be part of the Quantum Photonics Group, which is headed by Professor Peter Lodahl and currently consists of nine Post Docs and eight Ph.D. students. The group is part the Center for Hybrid Quantum Network and the Quantum Optics section, which consists of more than 50 researchers. The center and the section provides a very strong research environment with leading international research groups within quantum optics. The group is a part of The Niels Bohr Institute, Faculty of SCIENCE, University of Copenhagen. We are located in Copenhagen. We offer creative and stimulating working conditions in a dynamic and international research environment.

Note or Other details

Employment as PhD fellow is full time and for maximum 3 years. Employment is conditional upon your successful enrolment as a PhD student at the PhD School at the Faculty of SCIENCE, University of Copenhagen. This requires submission and acceptance of an application for the specific project formulated by the applicant. Terms of appointment and payment accord to the agreement between the Danish Ministry of Taxation and The Danish Confederation of Professional Associations on Academics in the State. The position is covered by the Protocol on Job Structure.
