*** this position has been closed. ***

Applications are invited for a postdoctoral position in the research group led by Ana Asenjo-Garcia at Columbia University in the city of New York (USA).

Topics of interest include many-body physics and collective light-matter interaction in atomic arrays, waveguide QED, cluster state generation for measurement-based quantum computing, and quantum optics with solid-state emitters in two-dimensional materials. The goal is to explore both fundamental ideas and their potential applications in the areas of quantum information science, non-linear optics, and metrology. The postdoctoral researcher will benefit from the rich scientific environment at Columbia, having opportunities to collaborate with other members of the condensed matter theory group as well as with experimentalists across different departments and disciplines (from cold atoms and molecules to photonics and 2D materials).

A suitable applicant should have a PhD in theoretical physics, with expertise in quantum optics, many-body physics, open quantum systems and/or quantum information. We are looking for someone that is highly motivated, and has a strong background in analytical and/or numerical methods. The appointment is for two years. The start date is flexible, but early/mid 2022 is preferred. Additional funds for travel/purchase of equipment will be provided.

The application materials should be sent by email and include a CV and a brief description of research interests and goals, as well as the names of (at least) two senior physicists who will provide letters of recommendation. Informal inquiries are welcome. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis. The deadline for full consideration is December 10, 2021, but applications may be considered until the positions are filled.

We are not accepting applications for this job through AcademicJobsOnline.Org right now. Please see the job description above on how to apply.
