Open Postdoc Fellowships at the Erwin Schrödinger Centre for Quantum Science and Technology (ESQ)
The Erwin Schrödinger Center for Quantum Science and Technology ESQ invites applications for five two-year postdoc fellowships. The selected fellows can join any of the ESQ research groups affiliated with the University of Vienna, the Vienna University of Technology, the University of Innsbruck or the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information in Vienna or Innsbruck.
ESQ groups are working on the foundations of quantum physics and quantum optics, on quantum computing, simulation, many-body physics, communication, sensing and metrology. They study photons, ultra-cold atoms and molecules, trapped ions, defects in nanodiamonds, superconductors, clusters and biomolecules, levitated nanoparticles, nanomechanical devices and hybrid quantum systems. For more see www.oeaw.ac.at/esq/home/research-groups.
This call invites young researchers who, by January 31st 2020, have completed their doctoral degree or acquired at least four years of full-time research experience. Candidates may not have resided or carried out their work or studies for more than 12 months in Austria in the 3 years preceding the application deadline.
The call deadline is 31 January 2020.
A preselection will be made by 31 March 2020, based on the submitted documents.
The finalists will be invited to Vienna to present themselves to the 7-membered international selection committee on 7 and 8May 2020.
Selected candidates can start their work by 1 July 2020 and no later than 1 November 2020.
ESQ is operated by the Austrian Academy of Sciences in partnership with the University of Vienna, the Vienna University of Technology and the University of Innsbruck, supported by the Austrian Ministry of Education, Science and Research and cofunded by the European Commission.
Employer will assist with relocation costs.
About Erwin Schrödinger Centre for Quantum Science and Technology (ESQ) Vienna
In 2016, the Erwin-Schrödinger Center for Quantum Science and Technology (ESQ) was launched by the Austrian Academy of Sciences as a national Austrian programme. ESQ is financed by the Ministry of Education, Science and Research (BMBWF) and is run in close collaboration with the three ESQ partners, the University of Vienna, the Technische Universität Wien and the University of Innsbruck.
Within a European Marie Sklodowska-Curie COFUND program starting in spring 2018, ESQ serves as a hub for a competitive but attractive postdoc fellowship programme, dedicated to excellence in quantum research, and providing the full breadth of EU benefits to international research fellows in Austria. These include
• EU compliant employment standards, including salaries and endowments, fellow selection, career development and secondment opportunities
• Enhanced international visibility through integration into Austrian quantum research groups with wide network of international collaborations
• A wide field of research options
ESQ currently unites about 300 scientists in 27 groups, four institutions in two Austrian cities. They are working at the forefront of research and development around... ultra-cold atoms, degenerate quantum gases, cold molecules, trapped ions, theoretical and experimental quantum computing, quantum simulation, quantum communication with photons, atoms, ions or superconductors, matter-wave physics with cold atoms, clusters and biomolecules. Research comprises quantum physics at the interface to biology, optomechanics with suspended cantilevers and isolated nanoparticles, experimental and theoretical complex many body physics, the physics of nuclear clocks, experimental tests and theoretical explorations of the foundations of physics.
ESQ groups may employ postdocs from atomic and molecular physics, quantum optics and laser science, condensed matter research, chemistry, mathematics and philosophy.
