The Niels Bohr Institute invites applicants for a PhD fellowship in Experimental Quantum Optics.
Start date is (expected to be) 1 June 2023 or as soon as possible thereafter.
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.
Who are we looking for?
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.
Our group and research- and what do we offer?
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.
Principal supervisor is Professor Peter Lodahl, The Niels Bohr Institute, e-mail: email@example.com, phone: +45 20565303

- Good language skills
Application and Assessment Procedure
Your application including all attachments must be in English and submitted electronically by clicking APPLY NOW below.
The deadline for applications is Sunday 18 December 2022, 23:59 GMT +1.
We reserve the right not to consider material received after the deadline, and not to consider applications that do not live up to the abovementioned requirements.
The further process
After deadline, a number of applicants will be selected for academic assessment by an unbiased expert assessor. You are notified, whether you will be passed for assessment.
The assessor will assess the qualifications and experience of the shortlisted applicants with respect to the above mentioned research area, techniques, skills and other requirements. The assessor will conclude whether each applicant is qualified. The assessed applicants will have the opportunity to comment on their assessment.
