At QUINFOG (Quantum Information and Foundations Group, Institute of Fundamental Physics, CSIC), we are looking for a motivated student for a theoretical PhD scholarship on the theory and applications of quantum simulators.

Ultracold atoms and trapped ions, as well as systems of quantum emitters and photonic lattices open up exciting new possibilities for the design of complex quantum phases matter with potential applications in emerging technologies like quantum computing or quantum sensing.

PhD Scholarship: Theory of Quantum Simulators with Quantum Optical Systems
Sketch of a quantum simulator for quantum chemistry using ultracold atoms in optical lattices.More information in Spanish here.

The ideal candidate will have a strong theoretical background in quantum physics. Ideally she/he will be familiar with theoretical quantum optics, as well as with basic computational methods (Matlab and/or Python).

QUINFOG is a young and dynamical research group with strong international links and collaborations. We are located in the central area of Madrid in the main CSIC campus (C/ Serrano 113b)

This is a 4-year long scholarship (FPI) funded by the Spanish National Project “Frontiers in Quantum Simulation”. The application is opened betwee October 17 and November 11th 2019 and it is open to all EU citizens.

Interested students please send a CV and motivation letter to:
