Experimental research scientist position in quantum simulators and sensors @ Institute of Physics Zagreb

Institute of Physics in Zagreb has recognized the importance that Quantum Technology has in modern society, and in particular novel quantum sensors based on cold atoms. Quantum Technology represents one of the four research pillars of the strategic research infrastructure project of the Republic of Croatia named Centre for Advanced Laser Techniques - CALT (http://calt.ifs.hr/en) which is currently being implemented at the Institute of Physics. CALT’s Laboratory for Quantum Simulators and Sensors will focus on developing a quantum optical clock based on cold strontium atoms, and studying quantum effects in (ultra)cold strontium gases.

The research scientist position involves the planning, building and developing new equipment and experimental techniques that will lead to the establishment of the Laboratory for Quantum Simulators and Sensors based on cold strontium atoms at the Institute of Physics in Zagreb.

Selection process

Applications should contain a CV, a list of publications, a letter of motivation with a brief work-plan (up to 1 page) that relates to the CALT project and the names of at least 3 scientists working in the field, but not affiliated to the candidate.

Application should include a formal confirmation issued by the Croatian national ENIC/NARIC office that the applicant has started the procedure for professional recognition of foreign higher education qualification.
