Postdoctoral Scholar Position in Solid-State Quantum Optics

One postdoctoral or visiting scholar positions available for conducting innovative research on manybody physics and quantum information science in low-dimensional solid-state nano- and micro-systems.

Important qualifications include a Ph.D. degree in experimental AMO physics and experience in experimental quantum optics, laser spectroscopy, quantum gasses or quantum information science. Experience with nanofabrication is also useful.

Interested applicant should email the following materials to the address below: a cover letter with a description of research interest, CV, publication list and names and contact information of two or more references. Applications will be reviewed immediately until the position is fulfilled.

We encourage applications from women and members of other under-represented groups. The University of Michigan is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.

Graduate Students Openings

We always welcome motivated students in physics, applied physics, electrical engineering, and material science.

If you love figuring things out and making things happen in the lab, if you rejoice over understanding a puzzling phenomena and discovering something new, if you are hopelessly intrigued by quantum mechanics, or, if you deeply believe in the inter-dependence between fundamental science and new technology, you are welcome to Join Us!

Students in the group typically each work on independent but related projects. You will be acquainted with a broad range of subjects in modern physics (such as quantum optics, manybody physics, quantum information science, cavity QED, laser physics, semiconductor physics…) through working on them and while CONTRIBUTING to them! You will develop skills in laser spectroscopy, quantum optical measurement, cryogenics, and nanofabrication and characterization of semiconductors. You will become experienced in designing and debugging experiments, as well as interpreting complex data through numerical analysis and theoretical modeling. Besides, you will receive enthusiastic guidance and strong support in your professional development.
