PhD and Postdoc Positions on Nanophotonics and Quantum Optics in QNanoLight QNanoLight (https://qnanolight.es) is offering positions for excellent postdoctoral researchers and PhD students to work on the development of different quantum technologies based on nanophotonic platforms.
QNanoLight is a consortium of theory groups based at IFIMAC, the Condensed Matter Physics Center at Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (https://ifimac.uam.es/), which is very active in the fields of nanophotonics and quantum technologies, with a broad network of international collaborators.
At the moment, we have multiple funding available from different Local (Comunidad de Madrid), National (Ministerio de Ciencia e Innovación) and European (Horizon RIA) sources. We seek motivated and independent researchers to join our team, and offer positions with competitive salaries. The number of postdoctoral (2 years) and PhD positions (max. 3 years) that will be filled will depend on the number and quality of applications, with an expected starting date of January 2023 (some flexibility is possible).
Specific topics of interest include: - Nanophotonic structures for the generation and manipulation of quantum states of light. - Polaritonic physics for chemistry and material science. - Spectroscopy and metrology with quantum nanophotonics. - Near-infrared and THz quantum photonics and sensing.
Expressions of interest, including a CV, contact of two references and a motivation letter (specifying the group where they would like to work) should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for applications is October 1st, 2022.
3-year PhD position on molecular optomechanics (closed, filled by Miguel Ángel Martínez): This PhD project intends to explore new theoretical fundamental aspects of the interaction between organic molecules and metallic nanostructures within the brand new field of molecular optomechanics. The position will be hold at the prestigous research center IFIMAC at the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, Spain. This environment offers one of the best international expertise in molecular nanophotonics, together with further world-recognized international theoretical & experimental collaborations that will be pursued along the project. The offered salary is line with those in Spanish national programs (approx. 1220€ on average) and will be covered by my project from La Caixa Junior Leader fellowship, funded by La Caixa Foundation (ID 100010434, code 100010434) and from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skfodowska-Curie grant agreement No 847648.
The interested applicants, please send two letters of recommendation, together with your CV and a motivation letter. For sending the application or further questions, please contact me.
