Brief job description


Your tasks
Optomagnonics is an emerging field, in which light is coupled coherently to magnetic excitations in solid state systems. First experiments have demonstrated coupling in the optical regime very recently. This is an exciting line of research that brings together concepts of Condensed Matter and Quantum Optics, and is promising for applications in new quantum technologies. You will explore, both analytically and computationally, how to manipulate, store, and transfer quantum information in platforms involving optomagnonic systems.


Your profile
You are enthusiastic about learning a new subject and have a good background in Condensed Matter and/or Quantum Optics. Familiarity with one of the following subjects can be helpful but is not required: spin waves, cold atoms, microwave-magnon coupling, optomechanics, spin-transfer torque, micromagnetics, Comsol. Programming skills are a plus.


Our offer
You will work in a young and dynamical group in an excellent environment. The MPL is a world leading institution in basic research concerning light-matter interaction, and collaborations with both experimental and theory groups in the institute are possible and encouraged.  More information about the institute can be found at www.mpl.mpg.de .


The Max Planck Society is committed to increasing the number of individuals with disabilities in its workforce and therefore encourages applications from such qualified individuals. Furthermore, the Max Planck Society seeks to increase the number of women in those areas where they are underrepresented and therefore explicitly encourages women to apply.
