The Quantum Technologies group is part of the Applied Physics Department at the University of Geneva, which enjoys a high reputation internationally and is excellently equipped for performing world-class research. We have active collaborations with the international research community, and locally are home to a network of research groups also working on quantum memories and repeaters, macroscopic quantum systems, non-locality and entanglement, quantum thermodynamics, quantum optics theory, and biophotonics. We offer a highly attractive research environment and salaries according to Swiss standards.
We are always seeking outstanding candidates looking for PhD positions. Our group is exploring and developing quantum technologies such as photon sources and single photon detectors, and their application in quantum communication ranging from applied to more fundamental perspectives, as well as emerging cross-disciplinary applications. The candidates must have a completed masters degree in physics or related disciplines with excellent grades, be highly motivated, and enjoy working in an international team.
PhD Applications: Candidates should send an e-mail with a CV and motivation letter to either Hugo Zbinden or Rob Thew. Please also identify 2-3 people who may be contacted to provide recommendation letters.
We are always happy to hear from students interested in doing their Masters in any of our research areas. Places are limited so it is advised to contact either Hugo Zbinden or Rob Thew in the first instance to check availability.
We are also happy to hear from students interested in doing an internship in any of our research areas. Places are limited so it is advised to contact either Hugo Zbinden or Rob Thew in the first instance to check availability.
