Offer Description

ICFO 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.

The successful candidate will be joining the Atomic Quantum Optics group led by Prof. Dr. Morgan Mitchell.

The group has several active research topics focused on hot-vapor quantum sensors, including miniaturization of optically-pumped magnetometers for magnetoencephalography (MEG) and magnetocardiography, zero- and ultra-low-field nuclear magnetic resonance, and radio-frequency field detection using magnetometers. We work with a variety of international partners, including industrial leaders in biomagnetic instrumentation, in vapor cell miniaturization, and in laser development for atomic sensors. We also have a strong track record of exploring quantum effects such as entanglement and squeezing in atomic vapors.

The successful candidate will be expected to contribute to experimental progress in at least one of the above research areas.

Funded by the European Union.
