The Niels Bohr Institute, Faculty of Science at the University of Copenhagen is offering two or more PhD scholarships in experimental hybrid quantum mechanics commencing in 2019.

The QUANTOP laboratory at the Niels Bohr Institute hosts a number of projects in the field of experimental quantum optics, quantum measurement, and quantum communication. In particular, active research is carried out in the field of hybrid quantum systems where optical photons couple to mechanical and atomic systems for generation of entangled and other non-classical states of light and matter.

The position is available for a 3-year period and your key tasks as a PhD student at SCIENCE are:

  • To manage and carry through your research project
  • Attend PhD courses
  • Write scientific articles and your PhD thesis
  • Teach and disseminate your research
