Applied physics with focus on experimental quantum photonics.
The subject includes generation, manipulation and detection of single photons or other quantum states of light, such as entangled photons, as well as engineering of nanoscale quantum optics devices.
The main focus is to develop and lead research activities in quantum photonics, including building an independent research group with a laboratory largely financed through own research funds, own research, supervision of doctoral students, and research administration.
To a lesser extent, the duties include teaching at undergraduate level, advanced level and doctoral level within the subject field, as well as supervision of M.Sc. thesis works. If the new employee is not proficient in Swedish at the time of admission, the person is expected to be able to teach in Swedish within two years.
The assessment criteria for appointment as an associate professor at KTH shall be the degree of expertise required as a qualification for employment. In addition, the assessment criteria stated in the KTH appointments procedure, section 1.2., apply in relation to the employment profile laid down.
