Postdoc in Experimental Quantum Optics at Center for Hybrid Quantum Networks and the Quantum Internet Alliance

University of Copenhagen


Postdoc in Experimental Quantum Optics at Center for Hybrid Quantum Networks and the Quantum Internet Alliance, Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen


The position will be part of the experimental quantum photonics group headed by Prof. Peter Lodahl ( within the newly established Center for Hybrid Quantum Networks (Hy-Q,  

In the quantum photonics group we specialize in developing photonic nanostructures in order to tailor light-matter interaction. The developed hardware is employed for quantum-information processing applications towards a quantum internet.  


The Center for Hybrid Quantum Networks, Hy-Q is a 6 year major research initiative aiming at creating a quantum internet by exploiting quantum dots and opto-mechanical systems. The center is a collaboration between the quantum photonics group and the groups of Prof. Anders S. Sørensen ( and Prof. Albert Schliesser ( In total the center employs approximately 50 scientists working on quantum networks. The position will also be part of the research within the Quantum Internet Alliance (  


The position should support and complement the activities of the Hy-Q research center and the Quantum Internet Alliance.  

The position concerns the generation of multi-photon entangled states by the use of a single quantum dot in a nanophotonic waveguide. The future applications of the photonic cluster states in quantum-information processing are considered.  


Inquiries about the position can be made to Prof. Peter Lodahl,, phone: (+45)20565303.  


The position is for 2 years and is open from August 1, 2019  


The University wishes our staff to reflect the diversity of society and thus welcomes applications from all qualified candidates regardless of personal background.
