PhD in Theoretical Quantum Optics of Ultracold Quantum Gases and Nanostructures (Oxford)
A new PhD position in Theoretical Quantum Optics of Ultracold Quantum Gases and Nanostructures is available at the University of Oxford, Department of Physics. The project’s main target is merging quantum optics and many-body physics of quantum gases, using theoretical methods of atomic and condensed matter physics. We will address phenomena, where the quantum natures of both light and ultracold matter play equally important roles. Modern theoretical and experimental studies are just entering this ultimate quantum regime of the light-matter interaction. Applications for quasiparticles in the systems of quantum nanophotonics are of interest as well. For more information, please, see www2.physics.ox.ac.uk/contacts/people/Mekhov. The candidates with expertise in either Atomic, Molecular and Optical or Condensed Matter Physics are welcomed to apply. The expected starting date is 1 October 2011. The position is fully funded for EU students, however, non-EU applicants can apply but will be required to provide funding to cover the additional fees. To express the intention to apply, and for informal inquiries about the project and application procedure, please, contact the project leader Dr. Igor Mekhov ( www2.physics.ox.ac.uk/contacts/people/Mekhov ) prior to the deadline 31 July 2011. The application should be submitted online. Please see http://www.physics.ox.ac.uk/AL/gradcrit.htm for information on the requirements on academic ability and English Language skills. For information on How to Apply and an application form, please see http://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/postgraduate_courses/apply/index.html A PDF copy of your application for Graduate Admissions should also be sent to The Administrative Secretary, Atomic and Laser Physics, Department of Physics, Clarendon Laboratory, Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3PU, or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
