Workplace : PARIS 14
Date of publication : Tuesday, November 17, 2020
Type of Contract : FTC Scientist
Contract Period : 12 months
Expected date of employment : 1 January 2021
Proportion of work : Full time
Remuneration : between 2730 and 3145 € gross monthly, depending on the candidate's experience
Desired level of education : PhD
Experience required : Indifferent
The successful candidate will work on the improvement of optical frequency standards, in particular on aspects related to the stability of optical lattice clocks. Through the integration of new technologies (non-destructive detection and new ultra-stable laser sources), this work will lead to an improvement in stability of more than an order of magnitude.
The candidate will carry out an experimental activity on two optical lattice clocks using strontium atoms already operational at SYRTE. The candidate will set up optical and electronic devices and characterize their performance. The candidate will operate the clocks to characterize the stability achieved and use it to measure systematic effects. He/she will take part in operational measurements, such as calibrations of international atomic time and international comparisons by fibre optic link.
The candidate must hold a PhD in experimental physics. A strong interest in experimental work is required, as well as skills in optics (lasers), atomic physics and quantum physics. Competence in atomic frequency standards, electronics, servo-controls will be an asset. The candidate, who will be in charge of the experimental project, will have to be able to work autonomously, but also as part of a team
The successful candidate will be a member of the "Optical Frequency Metrology" group, consisting of approximately 25 people. He will work more specifically on the two optical lattice clocks using strontium atoms, a team of about 4 people.
The position is funded by the European project QuantERA QClocks. The initial contract is for 12 months, renewable.
