A position is available for a postdoctoral researcher to join the Waveguided Atom Interferometry project, part of the Experimental Quantum Optics & Photonics Group within the Department of Physics, University of Strathclyde.

About the Role: You will make leading contributions to an experimental project to advance the start of the art of optical waveguides for matterwave interferometry with cold atoms and Bose Einstein condensates. The project is part of a multi-partner collaboration, Chip-scale Atomic Systems for a Quantum Navigator, funded by an EPSRC Programme Grant. The successful candidate will contribute to the composition of research publications and presentations and will assist with managing the project.

About You: You will have a PhD in experimental atomic or laser physics, or a related discipline. You will have experience with precision measurement and a broad knowledge of current research in the field of atomic physics and quantum technologies, or related areas. You will be familiar with techniques used for atomic physics, including laser cooling, atom interferometry, laser stabilisation, and data analysis. You will have developed experimental research skills, excellent verbal and written communication skills, and show a creative approach to solving problems. You will be flexible in your approach, possess strong team working skills, and will conduct the role with a high level of personal responsibility and initiative.

About Us: The successful candidate will join the Experimental Quantum Optics and Photonics (EQOP) group within Department of Physics at the University of Strathclyde. The EQOP group, with over 40 researchers, is notably active in experimental atomic systems and in knowledge transfer to industry. The project, under the supervision of Dr Paul Griffin and Prof Erling Riis, seeks to advance the state of the art of atomic clocks and development of ultra-compact integrated atomic-photonic sensors. The role will offer opportunities in initiating and delivering collaborative projects with academic, and supervision and mentoring of PhD students within the EQOP group.

Candidates will have a PhD (or close to completion) in experimental atomic physics, laser physics, or have equivalent experience. The role will require working within collaborations involving physicists and engineers, and therefore applicants should have the ability to communicate and exchange ideas at all levels. Technical knowledge of atom interferometry, ultra-cold atoms, and Bose-Einstein condensates, will be of advantage. An ability to prepare scientific publications and present research outcomes at local, national, and international research meetings is expected.

Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to contact Dr Paul Griffin (paul.griffin@strath.ac.uk) and discuss details of the project prior to submitting an application.

Formal interviews for this post will be held in January 2024
