Contexte de travail
Expertise and equipment: Our laboratory is state-of-the-art, fully equipped, and generously funded to support many ongoing experiments. Our expertise spans experimental and theoretical quantum optics, quantum imaging, light structuring, optics in scattering media, and computational imaging. Of particular note, our team has extensive experience with various single-photon cameras, including EMCCD, SPAD, and Tpx3cam.
Research environment: The new post-doc will join the Quantum Imaging Paris team (quantumimagingparis.fr). It is based in Sorbonne University, at the Paris Institute of Nanosciences (INSP), located at the center of Paris (4 place Jussieu, 75005 Paris). The team, led by Dr. Hugo Defienne, comprises 5 international PhDs and post-docs and enjoys the exceptional scientific environment of Sorbonne University with its numerous experimental and theoretical physics groups. In particular, we have a strong ongoing collaboration with the group of Prof. Sylvain Gigan. We care for a fully open an inclusive atmosphere.
Funding: We are pleased to offer two years of funding through an ERC starting grant. The gross salary varies between 52k€ and 73k€ depending on the candidate prior experience (set by the CNRS scale). Moreover, we encourage the new postdoctoral fellow to apply for additional postdoctoral funding opportunities, such as a Marie Sklodowska-Curie fellowship (deadline September 13, 2023). Our team, CNRS and Sorbonne University resources are available to train and support the postdoc in this endeavor.
Professional development: As a team, we prioritize the professional development of our post-doctoral fellows, providing opportunities for mentorship, grant writing, and career-enhancing experiences. Group leader H. Defienne actively supports the unique career goals and aspirations of our post-docs while also dedicating a portion of his time to lab work alongside them. During recruitment interviews, we discuss each post-doc's motivations and expectations, as well as potential research projects. Our approach balances both scientific rigor and individualized support for post-doctoral fellows as they pursue their career goals.
