Research Fellow in experimental Atomic Physics and Quantum Optics

Location
MUARC, University of Nottingham

Description
A suitably qualified and experienced individual is required to carry out research on experimental Atomic Physics and Quantum optics. The research is contributing to the efforts of the international QuILMI consortium that aims at building and characterising a Quantum Light and Matter interface with cold atoms and integrated waveguide structures. Candidates must have a PhD in physics and experience with experimental manipulation of ultracold atomic gases, atomic physics and quantum optics. They should be confident, ambitious, highly motivated, have good communication skills and enjoy working with a variety of different people across discipline boundaries. The role will require the candidates to actively contribute to the research activities of the ultracold atoms group at Nottingham. It is moreover required that the candidate assumes an active role within the QuILMI consortium. The project is to carry out forefront experimental research on ultracold atomic physics and quantum optics. The research is contributing to the efforts of the international QuILMI consortium that aims at building and characterising a quantum light and matter interface with cold atoms and integrated waveguide structures. The main responsibility of this post will be to carry out experimental research on the creation of a caesium Bose Einstein Condensate and the characterisation of its properties close to a microchip surface. Within the QuILMI project we will couple photons from the microchip to the atomic sample and vice versa. The candidate will work in a team consisting of 3 PhD students and the supervisor and expand the existing experimental system. The researcher is moreover expected to actively contribute to the research activities of the ultracold atoms group at the School of Physics and Astronomy. It is required that he / she will assume an active role within the QuILMI consortium. For more information, please contact Dr. L. Hackermueller or visit www.quilmi.eu and //www.nottingham.ac.uk/physics/research/coldatomsgroup/internalpages/ultracoldmixtures.aspx
