Post-doc position at Institut d'Optique, CNRS, Palaiseau, France

Opening of *one post-doc position (2 years) in the quantum gas group at the Institut d’Optique *in Palaiseau, in the Paris area (www.atomoptic.fr ).

The research work of our team is centered on the investigation of single-atom-resolved correlations in strongly interacting quantum gases of metastable Helium. The project uses the newly built lattice gas machine which allows for the 3D detection of individual bosons when released in a time-of-flight experiment (Cayla et al., Phys Rev A 2018 ). The candidate will be invited to participate to the exploration of two topics. Building on a recent work (C. Carcy et al., arXiv 2019 ), our first line of research will focus on investigating quantum correlations in non-Gaussian many-body ground-states and in dissipative lattices. The second part of the project will be dedicated to the realization of a Fermi sea of metastable Helium-3 and the study of correlations in Bose-Fermi mixtures. This second line of research will require the building of the laser cooling setup for He3. The post-doctoral position is funded through the project QUORUM from the Agence Nationale de la Recherche.

The candidate should have a PhD degree in physics, a strong background in experimental atomic physics, quantum gases or condensed matter physics. The selected candidate will join the team coordinated by D. Clément and currently composed of two PhD students. Our team is part of a larger group, the Quantum Gas group at Institut d'Optique, with 6 running quantum gas experiments.
