PhD fellowships in Quantum OpticsNiels Bohr InstituteFaculty of ScienceUniversity of Copenhagen

The Niels Bohr Institute, Faculty of Science at University of Copenhagen is offering one or two PhD scholarships in quantum optics commencing on April 1st. 2021, or as soon as possible thereafter.

Description of the scientific environment
The PhD research will be carried out at QUANTOP – Center for Quantum Optics at the Niels Bohr Institute (Department of Physics) at the University of Copenhagen. QUANTOP is a vibrant group of approximately 20 researchers and students working on quantum physics of atoms, light and mechanical objects with particular emphasis on hybrid quantum systems interfaced with optical photons. Generation of entangled states of material objects and their use for quantum sensing, quantum communication and quantum simulations are the core activities of the group.

Project description
The two PhD projects are centered around the development of the atomic and nano-mechanical components of a hybrid quantum system, respectively. One of the projects concerns the development of atomic spin ensembles for hybrid quantum information protocols and the other one – around the development of opto-mechanical systems based on ultra-coherent membranes for hybrid quantum interfaces.

Principal supervisor is Prof. Eugene Polzik, E-mail: polzik@nbi.ku.dk.

Job description
The position is available for a 3-year period and your key tasks as a PhD student at SCIENCE are:

  • To manage and carry through your research project

  • Write scientific articles and your PhD thesis
  • Teach and disseminate your research
  • To stay at an external research institution for a few months, preferably abroad
  • Work for the department
Formal requirements
Applicants should hold an MSc degree in physics with good results and good English skills. As criteria for the assessment of your qualifications, particular emphasis will be laid on relevant experimental experience within atomic physics and/or quantum optics including previous publications (if any).

Terms of employment
The position is covered by the Memorandum on Job Structure for Academic Staff.
Terms of appointment and payment accord to the agreement between the Ministry of Finance and The Danish Confederation of Professional Associations on Academics in the State.
The starting salary is currently at a minimum DKK 331,125 (approx. €43,750) including annual supplement (+ pension at a minimum DKK 53,811). Negotiation for salary supplement is possible.
