About the Project

The Quantum Nanophotonics Laboratory Group at CFM is offering a PhD position starting in 2022 to work with Prof. Molina-Terriza, in collaboration with Dr. Pellicer and Dr. Varga, in the quantum control of the nuclear and electronic spins in NV centers. The selected candidate will work within the MagNiFi MSCA and the Quantum Technologies IKUR initiative.

The selected candidate will be hired by the Research Association MPC - Materials Physics Center.  

The Quantum Nanophotonics Laboratory Group at the Center of Materials Physics addresses fundamental aspects of the interaction of light and matter at the nanoscale in the quantum regime. Current research topics in the group include optical trapping and levitation, classical and quantum scattering, and quantum technologies. For more information, visit our web:

Candidates must hold a Masters degree in Physics or Electrical Engineering, preferably in the field of Quantum Physics or Nano-optics. Previous experience in quantum sensing or quantum control of electronic spins will be highly appreciated for this position, as well as background in Python programming.

Suitable candidates can apply for this position by sending an email to [Email Address Removed] including in the subject "[PhD Application] Nanodiamonds" and the following information:
