Postdoc position in Experimental Quantum Matter Physics – Light, UNIGE, group of Prof. Andrea Caviglia

The Laboratory for Designer Quantum Materials, group of Prof. Andrea Caviglia, University of Geneva invites applicants for a Postdoc position in Experimental Quantum Matter Physics

The project

Light is an indispensable tool for probing materials with novel electronic properties. Furthermore, light can also unlock new properties of materials, as demonstrated in recent years by a number of experimental observations of light-induced quantum phases of matter. In this project, we will take the next step in this exciting research field by investigating cavity electrodynamics of quantum materials. This approach will enable strong light-matter interactions and the synthesis of hybrid quantum states of light and matter where photons can become part of the ground state of materials.

The candidate

We are looking for candidates with a strong background in condensed matter physics, interested in the physics of correlated materials in and out of equilibrium. Experience in optics and ultrafast science is required. Excellent communication and analytical skills are required. The candidate should aspire to perform research at the highest international level.

Our group

The Postdoc project will be carried out in the Laboratory for Designer Quantum Materials at the Department of Quantum Matter Physics of the University of Geneva. Our laboratory combines synthesis of heterostructure of quantum materials, with nanofabrication and advanced optical techniques for material control. The department is a major centre of Swiss research in the field of quantum matter physics, with strong collaborations between experimental and theory groups.

The principal investigator

The Postdoc project will be supervised by Prof. Andrea Caviglia, andrea.caviglia@unige.ch, +41223796495.
