PhD Positions in Quantum Communication
The candidates will work on the realization of state-of-the-art long-lived quantum memories for single photons based on rare-earth-ion doped crystals and the generation of entanglement between photons and rare-earth ions for quantum repeaters. The Group of Applied Physics has established itself as one of the leading laboratories in quantum memory/repeater research, with a specialty in developing solid-state light-matter interfaces at the quantum level. Research students will have access to state-of-the-art facilities and may participate in multi-national, large-scale collaborative projects.
We seek bright and motivated international graduate students, with a strong background in coherent light-matter interactions/spectroscopy and quantum optics. The students should hold the equivalence of a European Masters diploma. A PhD degree takes about 4 years to obtain at University of Geneva.
Applications can be sent by email to email@example.com. A complete application should include a CV, a short description of research interests, a list of courses (with grades) and at least two recommendation letters or the names of at least two potential referees and their relationship to the candidate.
