Open Postdoc Fellowships at the Erwin Schrödinger Centre for Quantum Science and Technology (ESQ)
The Erwin Schrödinger Center for Quantum Science and Technology ESQ is run by the Austrian Academy of Sciences in partnership with the University of Vienna, the Vienna University of Technology and the University of Innsbruck, supported by the Austrian Ministry of Education, Science and Research and cofunded by the European Commission.
In 2019 the ESQ calls for applications to fill 5 competitive two-year postdoc fellowships. The fellowship can be with any of the ESQ research groups affiliated with the scientific institutions mentioned above. The ESQ research groups are working at the forefront of experimental and theoretical research, are focused on the foundations of quantum physics and quantum optics, are exploring emerging technologies around quantum computing, simulation, many-body physics, communication, sensing and metrology and are studying systems as diverse as photons, ultra-cold atoms and molecules, trapped ions, nanodiamonds, superconductors, clusters and biomolecules, levitated nanoparticles, nanomechanical devices and hybrid quantum systems (www.oeaw.ac.at/esq/home/research-groups).
The call is open to young experienced researchers with either a doctoral degree (to be completed before 31st of January 2019) or at least four years of full-time research experience by the time of the application deadline (see the eligibility criteria of Marie Curie fellowships).
ESQ fellowships are open to experienced researchers of any nationality with an outstanding research track record in Quantum Science, who can contribute substantially to the goals of ESQ within its pool of intellectual capacity and research infrastructure.
To comply with EU mobility rules, candidates may not have resided or carried out their main work or studies, etc. for more than 12 months in Austria throughout the 3 years directly preceding the application deadline. The earliest possible employment will be mid- June 2019.
The call will be open from 1 December 2018 to 31 January 2019.
Fellows will have their contracts with the Austrian Academy of Sciences (Vienna or Innsbruck), the University of Vienna, the Vienna University of Technology, or the University of Innsbruck.
About Austrian Academy of Sciences
In 2016, the Erwin-Schrödinger Center for Quantum Science and Technology (ESQ) was launched by the Austrian Academy of Sciences as a national Austrian programme. ESQ is financed by the Ministry of Education, Science and Research (BMBWF) and is run in close collaboration with the three ESQ partners, the University of Vienna, the Technische Universität Wien and the University of Innsbruck.
Within a European Marie Sklodowska-Curie COFUND program starting in spring 2018, ESQ serves as a hub for a competitive but attractive postdoc fellowship programme, dedicated to excellence in quantum research, and providing the full breadth of EU benefits to international research fellows in Austria. These include
• EU compliant employment standards, including salaries and endowments, fellow selection, career development and secondment opportunities
• Enhanced international visibility through integration into Austrian quantum research groups with wide network of international collaborations
• A wide field of research options
ESQ currently unites about 300 scientists in 27 groups, four institutions in two Austrian cities. They are working at the forefront of research and development around... ultra-cold atoms, degenerate quantum gases, cold molecules, trapped ions, theoretical and experimental quantum computing, quantum simulation, quantum communication with photons, atoms, ions or superconductors, matter-wave physics with cold atoms, clusters and biomolecules. Research comprises quantum physics at the interface to biology, optomechanics with suspended cantilevers and isolated nanoparticles, experimental and theoretical complex many body physics, the physics of nuclear clocks, experimental tests and theoretical explorations of the foundations of physics.
ESQ groups may employ postdocs from atomic and molecular physics, quantum optics and laser science, condensed matter research, chemistry, mathematics and philosophy.
