    Research Assistant (PhD, m/f/d) in the field of Experimental Physics

    (Salary Scale 13 TV-L, 75 %) In course of the CRC TerraQ, the Institute of Quantum Optics invites applications for the position of a Research Assistant (PhD, m/f/d) in the field of Experimental Physics (Salary Scale 13 TV-L, 75 %) starting as soon as possible. The position is initially limited to 3 years. Responsibilities and duties The “Very Long Baseline Atom Interferometer“ facility (VLBAI) is one of three major research instruments at the “Hannover Institut für Technologie“ (HITec). Spanning across 10m free fall distance, our apparatus allows one to perform atom interferometry with rubidium and ytterbium with very large scale factors. In combination with exquisite control over systematic effects, e.g.…

    PhD Position: ULTRACOLD 1D FERMI GASES at the ENS Paris

    A 3 year PhD scholarship and a 2 year postdoc position are open at LKB ENS on the physics of 1D Fermi gases. Quantum physics in lower dimension is strikingly different from its 3D counterparts, and many paradigms governing three-dimensional phenomena fail when the dynamics of particles is confined in one or two dimensions. A celebrated example is the breakdown of Landau’s Fermi liquid model in 1D: while thermodynamical and transport properties of 3D interacting fermionic systems can be captured by assuming that they behave as an ensemble of weakly interacting quasi-particles, the low-lying excitations of one-dimensional systems are governed by collective excitations where density and spin degrees of freedom…

    Postdoctoral Fellow in Theoretical and Computational Physics

    We have an opening for a 2-year fixed-term research position in analytical and computational quantum dynamics of ultracold atoms. Applications are invited for a postdoctoral fellowship in theoretical and computational physics of ultracold few-atom systems. The postdoctoral fellow will work on fundamental aspects of quantum dynamics, semiclassical quantum chaos, and stochastic computational methods applied to strongly correlated ultra-cold atom systems with short-range interactions. A further aspect of the project is the development and implementation of stochastic algorithms for quantum dynamics and excitation spectra of closed and open quantum systems, extending the existing projector quantum Monte Carlo algorithms in the software package Rimu.jl (https://github.com/joachimbrand/Rimu.jl). The main research question is how few-body quantum correlations can…

    PhD Position in Guided Matterwave Interferometry

    Background: In matterwave interferometry, atoms are put into a superposition of two different momentum states. They are then made to travel in two different paths (yes, during part of the interferometry sequence every individual atom is at two distinct places at the same time) before being recombined. Depending on the phase accumulated in the two different paths the atoms end up in two different distinguishable states. The accumulated phase is extremely sensitive to minute entry differences between the two paths travelled, making ultra-sensitive measurements of gravitation, acceleration, or rotation possible. Atoms, however, have the tendency to fall under the influence of earth’s gravitation. This means, that in order to measure at…

    Research Fellow in Cold Atom Gradiometry

    https://tinyurl.com/ztnhxs95 Atom interferometry has become a versatile tool for fundamental research and, more recently, has started to move out of the laboratory towards quantum sensing for a wide range of applications. The atom interferometry group at the University of Birmingham is focused on the development of sensors for the measurement of gravity and gravity gradiometry. The group is now seeking candidates to play a key role in the developing the next generation of compact cold atom gravity gradiometers. The aim is to create portable devices that can operate on moving vehicles. Within this position, the successful candidates will develop the cold atom gravity gradiometer, the requisite underpinning hardware and perform research…
