    As a formal qualification, you must hold a PhD degree (or equivalent).


    • have a convincing early-career track record
    • have significant experience with experimental continuous-variable quantum optics
    • have experience with digital control (FPGA)
    • have experience with single photon detection and preferably with non-classical light
    • have solid experience with team work and student supervision
    • have a proven ability to drive a project forward and all the way to completion

    Responsibilities/ Job Description

    Your main task will be to design and carry out experiments within continuous-variable quantum optics aimed at exploring fundamental ideas and possible applications of e.g. nonlocality, quantum state discrimination, and quantum imaging and reading. As a researcher, you are expected to be highly self-driven and take responsibility for the progress of the project. You should be able to work independently, but must also be able to work closely together with team members.

    Your responsibilities will be to

    • devise new experiments and protocols
    • construct nonclassical light sources and detection schemes using homodyne and single photon detection
    • supervise students

    About Section for Quantum Physics and Information Technology (QPIT)

    QPIT’s vision is to understand, engineer and control complex quantum systems of light and matter, and to exploit these systems for quantum information processing and quantum metrology. We are a highly international research group of students and staff (currently about 40 people) with diverse backgrounds. We have a friendly and dynamic research environment with close, daily interaction among all group members and strong collaborations with many academic and industrial partners. Technical support is excellent with electronics and process engineers embedded in the section and a large capacity, skilled mechanical workshop at the Department. We are situated just north of Copenhagen at the Lyngby campus of DTU, one of the leading technical universities of Northern Europe, where we enjoy newly renovated office and lab space.


    • The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed upon with the relevant union.
    • If you are applying from abroad, you may find useful information on working in Denmark and at DTU at DTU – Moving to Denmark
