PhD Positions at the Centre of Quantum Optical Technologies in Warsaw, Poland

Six PhD positions in theoretical quantum optics and quantum information science are available at the Centre for Quantum Optical Technologies (QOT) at the University of Warsaw. Successful candidates will work in a diverse environment including theorists and experimentalists on fundamental properties of quantum systems, such as quantum coherence and entanglement, and their applications in quantum technologies, such as quantum metrology, sensing, communication, and computation.

Application deadline:
26th of November 2018

Profile of the candidates:
PhD candidates should have a master degree in physics or a related area, and have a good understanding of physics, quantum theory, and quantum optics.

We offer:
The PhD projects will be performed at the Centre for Quantum Optical Technologies (QOT), hosted by the Centre of New Technologies (CeNT) of the University of Warsaw. We offer an open and friendly research environment with access to all the facilities available within the Centre of New Technologies―an interdisciplinary research institute established within the University of Warsaw to gather international researchers of different backgrounds and experience, in order to conduct state-of-the-art research in biological, chemical and physical sciences. University of Warsaw strongly values the diversity of candidates and is very committed to the equality of opportunity.
Successful candidates will work within one of the theoretical labs operating within the QOT centre, yet in close collaboration with centre’s theoretical and experimental groups, as well as other research teams specialising in quantum theory and its implementations within Warsaw’s research community:
