Department of Physics and Astronomy

The Quantum Sciences and Technologies ( QST ) Group expects to have openings for two Postdoctoral Researcher or Senior Postdoctoral Researcher positions, starting as early as the spring of 2011. The initial appointments will be for one year and are expected to be renewed for another one to two years subject to satisfactory progress and availability of funds. The QST Group at LSU is led by Jonathan Dowling, and consists also of Hwang Lee, an associate professor in quantum optics, and postdoctoral researcher positions. The group will also have close ties to faculty in the Department of Mathematics and Electrical and Computer Engineering in the microphotonics thrust area. In addition to those, the LSU Department of Physics and Astronomy hosts strong Quantum Optics and Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics activity, including Robert F. O’Connell (condensed matter quantum optics, atomic physics, stochastic physics), A. Ravi P. Rau (atomic theory), Kenneth J. Schafer (atomic, molecular, and optical physics), and Mette Gaarde (theoretical atomic and optical physics). The main research interests of the QST group are theoretical quantum optics, quantum information theory, photonic band-gap materials theory and design, and theory of high powered lasers. Required Qualifications: (Both levels) Ph.D. or equivalent degree in physics, astronomy, or a related discipline (A.B.D. candidates will be considered, but must have Ph.D. by May 2011); (Senior Postdoc) three years of related experience. Additional Qualifications Desired: Experience in quantum optical approaches to quantum information processing, quantum imaging, quantum sensing, and quantum metrology. Responsibilities: develops numerical codes for the modeling and design of photonic band-gap materials ( PBG ); develops quantum optical theories and simulations of light-matter interactions, particularly the modeling of squeezed light sources interacting with coherent matter and Bose-Einstein condensates; works closely with other Quantum Sciences and Technologies group members; produces high-quality publications. Salary and level will be commensurate with qualifications and experience. An offer of employment is contingent on a satisfactory pre-employment background check. Application deadline is January 21, 2011 or until candidates are selected. Apply online at: . Position #017846 and 021128.
