The successful candidate(s) will be part of a European Research Council-funded project “Atomic Quantum Metrology” in the group of Prof. Morgan Mitchell. The group is very active in quantum metrology, with recent results including the first optical magnetometry beyond the shot-noise limit, the first spin squeezing in a magnetically-sensitive cold-atom system, the first measurements beyond the Heisenberg limit, and the first use of quantum optics to improve non-destructive measurement.
Candidates must hold an internationally recognized Ph.D.-equivalent degree (or evidence of its completion in the near future) in experimental cold atom physics, quantum optics or neighbouring fields. No restrictions of citizenship apply to the ICFO post-doctoral contracts. The contract is offered for periods of one year, renewable for a total of up to three years. Competitive salary depending on experience.
