This post is full time, and funded for up to 18 months.

The School of Physics & Astronomy is looking for a Research Associate to make a leading contribution on an international collaboration on a cutting-edge research project for 1.5 years, starting March 2024. This collaboration brings together academics from Glasgow and the National Research Council of Canada working together with two industrial partners Covesion and Few Cycle Inc. from the UK and Canada in emerging quantum technologies.

We are hiring 1 position in the area of quantum and nonlinear optics to work within the groups of Maria Chiara Braidotti and Daniele Faccio, in tight collaboration with our academic and industrial partners. The position is expected to be in very close collaboration with the companies Covesion and Few Cycle with a particular emphasis on generation of broadband squeezed states.

The expectation is that this partnership will create the first commercial solution for broadband squeezed light, revolutionizing quantum sensing with improved phase sensitivity, resolution, and chemical specificity. This project will cover a range of opportunities, for example generating and characterizing sub-shot noise states of light and implementing squeezed light into the visible/SWIR regions for enhanced detection and imaging. This ambitious project stands to advance quantum optics, metrology, and sensing technology significantly.

For informal enquiries or further information about the project, please contact Dr Maria Chiara Braidotti (MariaChiara.Braidotti@glasgow.ac.uk)
