Research assistant/PhD positions: Lu+ optical atomic clock experiment

Research assistant/PhD positions: Lu+ optical atomic clock experiment

Job Purpose:

There are three RA or PhD positions available at the Centre for Quantum Technologies within the experimental group lead by Associate Prof. Murray Barrett working on the Lu+ optical atomic clock experiment.


The project aims at the development of a frequency standard based on singly ionized Lu+, which uniquely supports three possible clock transitions. Currently the experiment supports two independent ion trap systems allowing independent experiments and clock comparisons to be made. Aside from the obvious goal of establishing high accuracy frequency comparison between the two systems there are three main themes of interest: establishing a multi-ion clock for improved clock stability, implementation of quantum logic for Heisenberg-limited spectroscopy, and the development of a portable clock system.






The candidate must have a BSc or MSc in Physics or electrical engineering. It is a full-time position with the possibility of enrolling for a PhD.


Interested candidates should submit a cover letter, CV and contact information of at least two referees.
