Postdoc positions in quantum photonic devices

Starting in April 2021, we are recruiting candidates for PDF and Research Associate level positions for projects applying photonic devices to problems in quantum transduction and quantum sensing.

Candidates must be experts in one of these areas:

  • nanofabrication of photonic devices
  • nanophotonic device design and testing
  • quantum optics theory and experiment
  • quantum emitter spectroscopy (NV centres, quantum dots, atoms)
  • low temperature physics (dilution fridge operation)
  • Interested candidates should sent their CV and a brief cover letter describing their research interests to Paul Barclay.

    Towards Northover Ridge: one hour in the car, three hours on the trail.

    Graduate student opportunities

    We are recruiting motivated and creative graduate students (M.Sc. and Ph.D.) to join the lab in 2019 or 2020 to work on projects in quantum optics and nano-optomechanics. If you are interested, please get in touch (include your CV, transcript, and a brief description of research interests), and apply for admission to the University of Calgary graduate program.

    All graduate students have the opportunity to partcipate in an NSERC CREATE program called QUANTA that is focused on preparing researchers for industrial and entrepreneurial activities.

    Undergraduate student opportunities

    Undergraduates interested in projects related to experimental, computational, or theoretical aspects of nanophotonics and quantum optics are encouraged to inquire.

    Scholarships and other funding options

    Graduate students are generally supported by the Department of Physics and Astronomy. However, there are a number of ways for researchers to secure independent funding.. Follow the link above for more information.
