|| The laboratory for Nano & Quantum Optics of the Abbe Center of Photonics has a number of open positions for PhD candidates and postdoctoral researchers, which provide ideal career opportunities for suitable candidates within the graduate school of the Abbe School of Photonics (www.asp.uni-jena.de):
PhD: Controlling light emission by dielectric nanoantennas
PhD: Machine learning-based design of metamaterials & Metamaterial-based machine learning systems
PhD: Strong coupling to quantum emitters by plasmonic superfocusing
PhD: Spatiotemporal dynamics of nano-scale light-matter interactions in metasurfaces & atomic membranes
PhD/Postdoc: Nanoscale integrated quantum photonics
PhD/Postdoc: Quantum imaging and sensing
PhD/Postdoc: Quantum communication and single photon sources
Postdoc: Quantum photonics
The laboratory for Nano & Quantum Optics is part of the Max Planck School of Photonics (www.maxplanckschools.de). Therefore, exceptional PhD applicants might also be offered to enter the Max Planck School's elite program, providing truly superior support to future academic careers.
The lab's research targets the control of light at the single photon level and at the nanoscale using nanostructured materials and ultrafast nonlinear optical effects. The lab, which is a part of the Institute of Applied Physics and the Institute of Solid State Physics at the Faculty of Physics and Astronomy of the Friedrich Schiller University Jena (Germany), covers a broad range of research fields in experiment, technology, and theory to study interaction of light with microstructured and nanostructured matter, employing advanced methods for nanofabrication, experimental characterization, and numerical modelling.
We are constantly looking for talented young scientists, who would like to contribute to cutting edge research projects on quantum photonics at the nano scale. Currently there are openings for PhD projects and postdoctoral projects on the above topics, but other topics motivated by the interest of potential candidates can be discussed as well.
