Postdoctoral Fellowships

Postdoctoral Fellowships in Quantum Optics  

In order to expand on their research in the interdisciplinary field of quantum science and to promote the career of excellent young scientists, the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (MPQ) and the Harvard Quantum Optics Center (HQOC) founded the Max Planck Harvard Research Center for Quantum Optics (MPHQ). In the framework of this world-class cooperation, research and educational activities take place in fundamental and applied fields in the quantum realm including sensing, metrology, control, chemistry, many-body systems, and information science. 

Your Qualifications
MPHQ is looking for excellent candidates for two-year Postdoctoral Fellowships based at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics or the Harvard Quantum Optics Center. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to take advantage of the unique cooperation including a joint postdoc mentoring scheme and frequent opportunities for exchange between the two institutions. In addition to that, fellowships highly encourage the development of joint research projects. Applications should address one of the following scientific core areas: Quantum Simulation; Quantum Phases of Matter; Quantum Information Science; Quantum Sensing and Metrology; Quantum Networks; Quantum Dynamics and Ultracold Quantum Chemistry.

Applicants should have completed their PhD no more than three years before starting the fellowship. The starting date of the fellowships is flexible and should be within one year after application.
