Fellow in Ultracold Polar Molecules
We have a postdoc opening to produce and study dipolar ground state ultracold molecules of lithium and potassium in the Quantum Matter group at the Centre for Quantum Technologies in Singapore. The experiments build on work done in Munich producing large samples of heteronuclear Feshbach molecules with long lifetimes. This experiment was moved to Singapore by group head Kai Dieckmann. The group has now prepared a frequency comb based STIRAP laser system and electric field electrodes to exploit a large dipole moment of up to two Debye.
Experiments are planned for two-dimensional traps, multilayer systems and deep optical lattices, in which the molecular gas is expected to be stable. The candidate is expected to play a pivotal role in the young research team working on this project.
Fellow in Theoretical quantum optics and quantum simulations of many body effects
The positions are within a CQT research project led by Dimitris Angelakis. We are looking for highly motivated candidates who have a
strong research background mainly in theoretical quantum optics.
Exceptional candidates from condensed matter theory and/or quantum information theory will also be considered.
The research to be undertaken will be in the interface of quantum optics, condensed matter and QIP with emphasis in the simulation of quantum many body effects with atomic and photonic systems.
A PhD in physics is required and a strong background in theoretical quantum optics is essential. The ideal candidate should have knowledge and/or experience in one or more of the following areas: cavity QED (including solid state-photonic crystals Circuit QED), slow light systems, cold atoms, ion traps and photonic waveguides. Experience in collaborating with experimentalists in any the above areas will be a major advantage as the group is in collaboration with related experimental groups both in CQT and overseas. The candidate should posses a strong background in numerical modeling of physical problems in the above areas.
The positions are available as soon as possible (for two years in the first instance) and we accept applications until a suitable candidate is found. Applications should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. They should contain a two page summary of their past research, a CV and the contact details (email) of three referees
Postdoctoral Fellow in Quantum Computation
Applications are invited for a two year postdoctoral position in Quantum
Computation at the Centre for Quantum Technologies (CQT), Singapore. The
position is associated with the research group of Joe Fitzsimons and
located at CQT on the campus of the National University of Singapore.
CQT is one of the leading centres for quantum computing research in the
world, and there is ample opportunity to interact with many senior
Candidates should be creative, highly motivated, and interested to work in an interdisciplinary and very collaborative environment. The candidate will have a PhD in theoretical physics, theoretical computer science or mathematics and have a strong background in quantum computation, ideally with experience with the measurement based model.
Applications should consist of a full CV, list of publications, a brief statement of research interests (one page) and names and electronic contact details of three referees. Applications and informal inquiries should be sent via email to Joe Fitzsimons (email@example.com). Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
Postdoctoral Fellow in Ultra Cold Atoms
We invite applicants for a position at the Post Doctoral level.
The successful candidate will work in the group R. Dumke hosted on the NTU "garden" campus.
The candidate will play a leading role in one of our main projects. The responsibilities are reaching from the daily project work to representing the research on meetings/conferences all over the world. The group is well equipped, has sufficient funding and is actively supporting new ideas which could lead to independent research projects.
This position requires a PhD with the research focus on ultra cold atoms or ions. If you fulfill the requirements and have further questions please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Postdoctoral Fellow in Experimental Atomic Physics
Two positions open for application.
Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in experimental atomic physics at the Centre for Quantum Technologies (CQT), Singapore. The position is associated with the research group of Murray Barrett and located at CQT on the campus of the National University of Singapore and will involve working with ion traps and/or cavity QED. The successful candidate will have a Ph.D. in experimental physics with a very strong background in atomic physics and laser cooling techniques. Experience with ion trapping or cavity QED is preferred. Applications with a full CV, list of publications, a brief statement of research interests (one page) and names and electronic contact details of three referees should be sent via email to Murray Barrett. Applications are accepted until the positions are filled.
Postdoctoral Fellow in Algorithms & Complexity
Postdoctoral Fellow in Gauge Potentials with Ultracold Fermionic Strontium
During this last decade, lots of experimental efforts have been devoted to cool and manipulate neutral Strontium atoms. The development of a future optical frequency standard is one of the major goals in the field. In 2009 and 2010, Bose-Einstein condensation and degenerate Fermi gas of Strontium have been reported by the groups of Rice and Innsbruck. In parallel, topological phases were recently successfully used to imprint an Abelian gauge field on neutral atoms mimicking the action of a magnetic field on charged particles. One of the main motivations is to use, in the future, ultracold gases as quantum emulators and study, for example, the physics of quantum Hall phenomena. Furthermore, non-Abelian gauge fields arise quite naturally from the adiabatic evolution of quantum systems with some internal degenerate eigenstates. Non-Abelian gauge potentials have thus been proposed to create, for example, magnetic monopoles or to induce spin-orbit coupling, opening new connections between ultracold atoms, spintronics and high-energy physics.
Since the Fermionic Strontium isotope has a pure nuclear spin ground state which can be addressed by optical means, we are thinking that an ultracold Strontium gas is a promising medium on which Abelian and non-Abelian gauge fields can be generated. To do so we will use the so-called Electromagnetically-Induced Transparency (EIT) or/and Tripod schemes.
The successful applicant will work on this abounding and competitive research field. The candidate should have a Ph.D. or a postdoctoral experience in AMO physics. Applications with a full CV, list of publications, a brief statement of research interests (one page) and names and electronic contact details of three referees should be sent via email to David Wilkowski. Applications are accepted until the position is fulfilled.
