The theory group on 'Fundamental Processes in Quantum Physics' at the Center for Optical Quantum Technologies of the University of Hamburg announces a postdoctoral position in theoretical physics.

The underlying project aims at developing novel quantum and hybrid algorithms for quantum simulation based on a Rydberg tweezer platform for ultracold atoms. Applications to relevant computational and optimization problems are envisaged.

Ideally a close interface with the underlying driven many-body Rydberg physics will be established. Research is performed in the above theory group with an immediate link to the corresponding experimental groups.

For more information and/or details please contact Prof. Dr. Peter Schmelcher at the below given email (see also
