Vacant Positions

Postdoc Position at Institut d´Optique

The Quantum Optics group at the Institut d’Optique (Palaiseau, France) has one post-doc position immediately available on its experimental project dedicated to quantum simulation of many-body problems using arrays of individual Rydberg atoms. On-going works aim at studying spin models to investigate out-of-equilibrium situations and synthetic topological matter in the presence of strong interactions.
For more details on our projects, see our website:

The applicant should have a strong motivation for experimental work, and should have previous experience in at least one of these area: atomic physics, quantum optics or laser cooling and trapping techniques.

Postdoc Positions at University of Strathclyde

Applications are invited to fill up to two postdoc positions to work with the Quantum Optics and Quantum Many-body Systems team at the University of Strathclyde, to work on two related PASQuanS tasks:

1) Benchmarking, certification, and applications of analogue quantum simulators, associated with the EU Flagship project on Programmable Large-Scale Atomic Quantum Simulators (

2) Software development for applications of quantum simulators, especially considering the mapping of solutions of partial differential equations onto quantum dynamics.

We are seeking highly motivated theoretical researchers who will be responsible for research on each of these projects, developing novel insight into many-body physics, new techniques to benchmark and verify quantum simulators, and applications relevant to other academic disciplines and industry. The successful applicants will be based in the Department of Physics under the supervision of Prof. Andrew Daley. Technical knowledge of computational methods, especially tensor network techniques for many-body dynamics, would be an advantage.

The applications are available online at (vacancy reference 244690). For any more information, please contact Prof. Andrew Daley (
