The Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information Innsbruck (IQOQI-IBK) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (OeAW), Austria`s leading non-university research and science institution, dedicates its work to theoretical and experimental basic research in the areas of quantum science. IQOQI is pleased to invite applications for a

The Department of Byzantine Research is dedicated to the study of the medieval Greek culture of the Eastern Mediterranean as well as its ‘Nachleben’, in three strands: ‘Communities and Landscapes’, ‘Language, Script and Text’ and ‘Byzantium and Beyond: Cultural Heritage and Intercultural Context’. Employing the methodology of historical-cultural studies, the work on written sources is combined with research on manuscripts and material culture (inscriptions, seals). As a result, there are strong interconnections between the three strands that are in constant dialogue. Digital humanities play an increasing role in the analysis and visualization of research data. Several long-term research projects are complemented by shorter projects, often supported by external funding.

Main tasks:

  • Work on theory of Rydberg atom arrays and their application for quantum simulation and quantum
  • information processing tasks.
  • Writing scientific publications
  • Tutor bachelor and master students
  • Attendance of conferences and workshops
  • Supporting the group in administrative tasks

Your profile:

  • PhD degree in physics with demonstrated ability for excellent research
  • Highly motivated researcher with strong interested in quantum science
  • Strong background in quantum optics, quantum information and/or condensed matter physics
    (outstanding candidates with other backgrounds will also be considered)
  • Excellent verbal and written English skills

Our offer:

  • Research on the forefront of quantum science
  • World class, stimulating research environment
  • Possibility to work in a young, diverse team
  • Flextime arrangement
  • Numerous social benefits for employees

We offer an annual gross salary of € 56.861,00 before taxes based on the salary scheme of the Austrian Science Fund (FWF)
