PhD and postdoc positions are available in Igor Pikovski’s group at Stockholm University.
• Quantum optics with various systems such as optomechanics, atomic clocks and atomic fountains
• Effects of weak gravity in quantum mechanics
• Quantum gravity signatures at low energies
• Quantum optical probes of general relativity and beyond standard model physics
• Quantum foundations
We seek motivated candidates with interest in fundamental quantum research that is close to quantum optics experiments. The group is embedded in a vibrant research environment at the AlbaNova University Center, which hosts the physics departments of Stockholm University and KTH, as well as the NORDITA institute for theoretical physics. Our group is also affiliated with the LISA consortium, the group of Prof. Frank Wilczek at Stockholm University and the Wallenberg Center for Quantum Technology that connects Swedish quantum research groups.
