Description :

Applications are invited for an EPSRC funded 1 year Postdoctoral position in theoretical cold atom physics, at the Department of Physics, Lancaster University. The aim of the project is to study long-range dipole-dipole interactions between the atoms and their cooperative behaviour. The light-mediated interactions can be engineered and manipulated for applications in quantum technologies and the goal is to utilise them in sensing.

A suitable candidate would be a highly motivated researcher with a PhD in Physics, or in a closely related discipline and should also have an outstanding track record of research commensurate with their stage of career. Experience in one of the following topics would be advantageous: quantum optics, cold atom physics, computational physics, quantum physics.  

The appointment will be for 1 year at the Department of Physics, Lancaster University, commencing on 1 May 2018 or soon after (negotiable).

The Department of Physics at Lancaster University is strongly committed to fostering diversity within its community as a source of excellence, cultural?enrichment, and social strength. We welcome those who would contribute to?the further diversification of our department.

For informal enquiries, including further information on the project, please contact Prof. Janne Ruostekoski Email:

We welcome applications from people in all diversity groups.
