Position Available: Full professor in experimental quantum optics

For full details see the University's official announcement.

INSTITUTE : The Department of Applied Physics (GAP) of the Science Faculty of the University of Geneva offers a dynamic scientific environment with world-renown academics in the domain of optics, quantum physics and quantum information. The Department is actively involved in several major national and international research programs.

ASSIGNMENT : This full-time appointment includes teaching physics at bachelor, master and postgraduate level as well as supervising master and doctoral theses.

The candidate will develop original research at the international level in advanced experimental quantum optics and secure external funding. He/she will also take on organizational and administrative duties at department, section and faculty level.

We are seeking a candidate with a proven international scientific reputation, with a wide range of skills and knowledge, including a very good understanding of quantum optics and quantum information physics. Expertise in hybrid quantum systems (such as NV centers, ultra-cold atoms or trapped ions, quantum memories, superconducting qubits, or opto-mechanical systems) is desired. Moreover, the candidate’s research should combine fundamental physics aspects and applications in quantum information and quantum communication. Other required skills are the ability to coordinate an important research group, pedagogical skills for teaching and the ability to initiate communication and outreach programs for the University.
