Post-doctoral fellow in Experimental Photonics with Structured Light

Approximate net monthly salary:  € 1800
Starting date: Spring 2023

We are opening a two-year postdoctoral position in the Structured Light and Matter group, headed by Prof. Lorenzo Marrucci at the University of Naples Federico II, Italy. The SLAM group is a large team of researchers interested in diverse applications of structured light, ranging from quantum photonics to spectroscopy. The successful candidate will mainly work within the QSTP Lab, led by Dr. Filippo Cardano, where these concepts are applied to quantum simulations and topological photonics. Please visit our website http://slamgroup.it/index.php/research-groups/qstp to have a look at our ongoing activities and recent publications.

We are particularly interested in researchers who have a solid background in optics and quantum physics. Past experience in experimental photonics will be highly appreciated. Applicants must have a PhD in Physics or other subjects related to Photonics and/or Quantum Engineering (PhD candidates who will graduate by spring 2023 are also encouraged to apply). 

If you are interested in working with us, please send your CV (as PDF file), publication list, and the names and contact information of 2-3 professional references to Lorenzo Marrucci (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and Filippo Cardano (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) before 2022, December 31st.

 

Post-doc in the other research groups

Currently we have no opening for post-doctoral positions funded in the other research groups.

Of course, we may always consider postdoc candidates who can secure their own funding. We are also open to considering possible applications to the Marie Curie program or other similar programs to secure external support for doing your postdoc with us. Interested persons shoud send their CV (as PDF file), publication list, and the names and contact information of 2 references to our head Lorenzo Marrucci (lorenzo.marrucci[at]unina.it), or to group leaders Filippo Cardano (filippo.cardano2[at]unina.it), Bruno Piccirillo [This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.] and Domenico Paparo [This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.], depending on your research interests.

PhD Studies

If you are interested in being part of our research group during your PhD studied at Federico II, please take a look at the webpage  by our Department, that is managing the Physics PhD program. If you are an Italian applicant, you can find the needed information here. If you are coming from abroad, you can instead refer to this page. Selection procedures are in fact different.

To work with us, please consider also the option of applying to the SSM - Scuola Superiore Meridionale, in particular to the following PhD program: MPHS – Mathematical and physical sciences for advanced materials and technologies.

The next call should be open in spring 2023.

Visiting students

European or Italian visitors are always welcome to take part in our research activities for short term projects. Contact us for planning your stay here. For extra-European visiting students we can also consider requests, but the needed bureaucracy discourages us from accepting them in most cases.
