Post doc: experimental cold-atoms physics

We announce the opening of one post-doc experimental position in the Quantum  Mixtures group at the Istituto Nazionale di Ottica (CNR-INO) and European  Laboratory for Nonlinear Spectroscopy in Sesto Fiorentino, Italy  (

The position is funded through the QT-Flagship project QOMBS  ( and the research topic is quantum correlations in  degenerate gases for simulations of quantum cascade frequency combs. The  project QOMBS envisions, among other things, to use cold-atom platforms to   simulate specific features of the broad class of laser sources, known as  “quantum cascade lasers”, emitting in the frequency range 1-100 THz.

The ideal candidate should have a PhD degree in physics, a background in  experimental atomic physics, quantum optics and/or quantum information. The  selected candidate will develop and realize an array of Bose-Einstein  condensates equally spaced in momentum, and investigate the quantum  correlations induced by contact interactions.

The term of the appointment is two years. The position will be formally  opened in the upcoming weeks, but perspective candidates are invited to  contact Dr. Chiara D’Errico ( and/or Dr. Francesco  Minardi ( at their earliest convenience.
