PhD student: Physics / chemistry


Project title: “Quantum simulations, computations, and sensing with novel quantum molecular systems”. 
Project is carried out within the Homing programme of the Foundation for Polish Science.
The aim of the project is to investigate theoretically novel quantum molecular systems for applications in quantum simulations, quantum computations, and quantum sensing using methods of AMO and many-body physics. Two new architectures are proposed: ultracold highly magnetic and polar molecules and polar molecular ions in traps.
Key responsibilities include:

  1. Derivation of equations.
  2. Implementation of computer codes.
  3. Running and analysis of numerical simulations.

Profile of candidates/requirements:

  1. M.Sc. degree in physics or related field (as for September 2017).
  2. Interest in the subject, motivation to scientific work and wish to complete Ph.D. thesis in physics or related field in our Laboratory.
  3. Knowledge of quantum mechanics and experience in programming.

Required documents:

  1. Cover letter.
  2. Curriculum Vitae.
  3. Transcript of records from undergraduate studies.
  4. Contact details of one or two referees.

We offer:

  1. Development of skills in the field of ultracold quantum many-body systems.
  2. 6-month internship at the Institute of Photonic Sciences in Barcelona, Spain.
  3. Participation in scientific schools and conferences.
