The Sussex Programme for Quantum Research (SPQR) is the newest of four strategic research centres at the University of Sussex, founded to explore and realise the potential of quantum science and technology in end-user applications. SPQR defines a multi-disciplinary platform, ultimately comprising research teams operational in the Schools of Mathematical & Physical Sciences and Engineering & Informatics, Brighton & Sussex Medical School and the Sackler Centre for Consciousness Science.
The Quantum Systems and Devices team, based in new laboratory space in the Accelerator Building, is a core member of SPQR and is now seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Experimental Physics. Targeted research areas include quantum physics and technologies with a focus on warm atomic vapours.
Candidates should be educated to doctoral level and thoroughly experienced in relevant areas of experimental physics and have a research track record in atomic, molecular and optical physics and related fields. The successful candidate is expected to spend a majority of his/her time on research.
The appointment will be made at grade 7 (Research Fellow I), salary point depending on demonstrated experience and skills.
The University is committed to equality and valuing diversity, and applications are particularly welcomed from women and black and minority ethnic candidates, who are under-represented in academic posts in science, engineering and mathematics at Sussex.
