Postdoctoral position on SP for continuously monitored quantum sensors

University of Warsaw
Country of Position: 
Contact Name: 
Jan Kolodynski
Subject Area: 
Applies to General Signal Processing
Start Date: 
25 March 2020
Expiration Date: 
05 April 2020
Position Description: 

The Quantum Information and Inference group led by Jan Kolodynski at the Centre of New Technologies (CeNT) of the University of Warsaw offers a 2(+1)-year postdoctoral position within the project Continuously Monitored Quantum Sensors: Smart Tools and Applications (C'MON-QSENS!)
funded by the QuantERA EU programme in Quantum Technologies. The appointment will be for two years with a one-year extension option.

The successful candidate will develop data-inference (DI) and signal-processing (SP) software tools (involving Bayesian filtering, compressed sensing, machine learning) for them to be robust, efficient and compatible with state-of-the-art quantum sensors operating in real-time.
The candidate will also have the possibility to develop numerical simulations (quantum trajectories, Monte-Carlo) of optomechanical and atomic sensors, such that the DI and SP tools can be explicitly verified and calibrated, before implementing them explicitly in real-life experiments at the later stage of the project while visiting relevant consortium partners.

The work will be conducted under the supervision of Jan Kolodynski, however, in close collaboration (long-term visits, also to experimental teams, are fully supported financially and encouraged) with other members of the C’MON-QSENS! Consortium:
- Yonina Eldar (Weizmann Institute of Science, IL)
- Klaus Mølmer (Aarhus University, DK)
- John Calsamiglia (Autonomous University of Barcelona, ES)
- Witlef Wieczorek (Chalmers University of Technology, SE)
- Kasper Jensen (University of Nottingham, UK)

Profile of the candidate:
Candidates should have a PhD degree in physics or a related area (e.g. engineering, computer science). The degree should be obtained not earlier than 7 years before the employment in the project.
Experience in implementing signal-processing and data-inference tools in quantum applications is highly desired but not essential.

10 000 PLN of full remuneration cost, i.e. expected net salary at 6000-7000 PLN (~1600 EUR).
Applications for extra independent scholarships of Polish institutions will be encouraged and supported.

Application deadline:
5 April 2020

Expected starting date:
4 May 2020 or later

Further information:
For further information about the application process, please, consult the attachment (written in both English and Polish) of the official announcement at the CeNT website.
Informal enquiries may be addressed by email to Jan Kolodynski at
