Job Purpose

We are looking for a prospective postdoctoral researcher who has a genuine interest in quantum mechanics and in experimental physics of atomic gases. The successful candidate will join the Cold Atoms group at the University of Birmingham and lead the lab activities towards the realization and characterization of new optically pumped atomic magnetometers. In particular, the research aims at achieving an improved sensitivity for the detection of magnetic fields of biological origin (e.g. magnetic fields generated by the neuronal activity of the brain) and for fundamental Physics measurements. The project benefits from the collaboration with the National Physical Laboratory, and will develop synergies with other experiments within the Cold Atoms group and the Centre for Human Brain Health of the University of Birmingham. The successful candidate is also expected to play an active role in these collaborations.

Person Specification

  • PhD in Physics
  • An excellent track record in experimental AMO physics. In particular, in the fields of atomic magnetometry, hot atomic vapours, cold and ultracold atoms, or quantum optics.
  • Excellent experimental skills, including optics, lasers, electronics, programming etc
  • Demonstrated ability to manage a self-contained project, and to work effectively as part of a team in an academic environment.
  • Ability to communicate complex information clearly.


Additional information

Based at the University of Birmingham, Edgbaston Campus, Birmingham, UK.
