University Assistant (prae doc) at the Quantum Optics, Quantum Nanophysics and Quantum Information
The University of Vienna (20 faculties and centres, 178 fields of study, approx. 9.800 members of staff, about 90.000 students) seeks to fill the position as soon as possible of a
University Assistant (prae doc)
at the Quantum Optics, Quantum Nanophysics and Quantum Information
Reference number: 10953
Our research team is focused on experiments in quantum nanophysics. In our effort to explore the boundary between quantum physics and classical phenomena, we are exploring matter-wave interference and new quantum states with high-mass nanoparticles.
New experiments shall build on our demonstrated capabilities in cavity and nanoparticle cooling in also in combination with the realization of microcavities to prepare new sources of dielectric particles that can be cooled and launched with a high rate and heralded/on demand in high vacuum. This shall enable high-mass quantum states and matter-wave interferometry.
For this purpose, we seek to expand our team and hire a University Assistant (PhD student) in the research team of Prof. Markus Arndt at the Faculty of Physics at the University of Vienna. This position will be integrated into and will profit from the Vienna Doctoral School in physics (vds-physics.univie.ac.at).
The candidate shall participate in all stages of preparation, conduction, evaluation and exploitation of experiments which focus on preparing/launching, cooling and manipulating dielectric nanoparticles of different types and shapes, aiming at the development of e a new source for high-mass matter-wave interferometry and new mesoscopic quantum states.
The candidate shall be involved in experimental research but also be capable of lab-oriented simulations.
The candidate will be involved in teaching to a moderate extent as defined by the collective agreement.
The candidate will support the group in their self-organization and research administration on equal footing with
the other PhD students in the group.
The successful candidate will present their thesis to the faculty and sign a doctoral agreement within the
first 12 months of the contract.
