The newly established group of Quantum Phenomenology is hiring a Postdoctoral Fellow in theoretical quantum physics. Research in the group focuses on quantum optics, quantum control and quantum information theory. One major research interest is the interface between gravity and quantum physics at low energies, focusing on how gravity affects quantum optical systems, what novel effects can arise and how to probe them in experiments.
We seek a motivated Postdoctoral Fellow with interest in fundamental quantum research that is close to quantum optics experiments. The Postdoc will be embedded in a vibrant research environment at the AlbaNova University Center. The group is also affiliated with the LISA consortium, the group of Prof. Frank Wilczek and the Wallenberg Center for Quantum Technology that connects Swedish quantum research groups.
The Postdoc is hired primarily for research in theoretical physics. The position may also involve student supervision and teaching.
Postdoctoral positions are appointed primarily for purposes of research. Applicants are expected to hold a Swedish doctoral degree or an equivalent degree from another country. Qualified applicants should hold a PhD in Physics.
In the appointment process, special attention will be given to research skills, previous publications, interest in the subject and the ability to conduct independent research. Previous research experience in quantum optics and/or quantum information is favorable. Interviews will be used to assess qualifications of the applicant.
