ICFO is offering two postdoctoral positions to well-qualified, highly
motivated and dynamic young scientists who wish to enhance their scientific
career in a friendly and stimulating environment.
The successful candidates will be joining the Quantum Photonics with Solids
and Atoms group led by Prof. Dr. Hugues de Riedmatten. The group has
experience in quantum technologies for quantum networks, including quantum
memories, quantum light sources, quantum frequency conversion and quantum
processing nodes. The current positions will be within a project aiming at
developing quantum repeaters using solid-state quantum memories and
The selected candidates will strongly benefit from a multidisciplinary
environment with other postdocs and PhD students working in quantum
technologies at ICFO and other centers in the Barcelona area, and with strong
