Position Description:    

About BNL: Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) is a multipurpose research institution funded primarily by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science. Located on the center of Long Island, New York, Brookhaven Lab brings world-class facilities and expertise to the most exciting and important questions in basic and applied science – from the birth of our universe to the sustainable energy technology of tomorrow. We operate cutting-edge large-scale facilities for studies in physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, applied science, and a wide range of advanced technologies. The Laboratory's almost 3,000 scientists, engineers, and support staff are joined each year by more than 4,000 visiting researchers from around the world. Our award-winning history, including seven Nobel Prizes, stretches back to 1947, and we continue to unravel mysteries from the nanoscale to the cosmic scale, and everything in between. Brookhaven is operated and managed by Brookhaven Science Associates, which was founded by the Research Foundation for the State University of New York on behalf of Stony Brook University, and Battelle, a nonprofit applied science and technology organization.

About the Position: Quantum Information Science (QIS) is an emerging area in the BNL portfolio with considerable investment from the Lab, DOE and NY State over the last two years. The lab has arranged several joint appointments for prominent QIS experts and also hired junior staff with QIS backgrounds. The work is being done on multiple fronts in several departments, employing state-of-the-art equipment. BNL is also participating in several QIS collaborations to build the critical mass of QIS experts and modern technologies across the country. The Cosmology and Astrophysics Group in the Physics Department at Brookhaven National Laboratory invites applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position with a duration of two years. The successful candidate will work on the intercrossing of optical astronomy, quantum optics and QIS to investigate concepts of optical interferometers connected into a quantum network. More broadly, the project can be described as investigation of quantum sensing over large baselines employing quantum networks and quantum internet to connect them. Essential Duties and Responsibilities: • Perform research in the field of quantum optics and quantum networks for the astronomical interferometry project described above and, more generally, in the field of quantum sensing aided by quantum networks. • Study experimental techniques to demonstrate feasibility and develop algorithms for the data analysis.

You are qualified for this position if you possess: • A Ph.D. in Physics or equivalent degree, obtained within the past five years • Solid background in quantum optics and optical instrumentation

You are well-matched to this position if you possess: • Programming and data analysis skills (e.g. C/C++, Python)
