iit Gandhinagar postdoctoral fellow recruitment About

Indian Institute of Technology Gandhinagar (IITGN) invites applications for Postdoctoral Fellow position in the group of B. Prasanna Venkatesh to work in the broad areas of theoretical quantum optics, ultracold atomic physics, and quantum thermodynamics.

Job Description

The research interests of the group are in the areas of quantum optics, ultracold atomic physics, and quantum thermodynamics. Some specific problems of interest include collective dissipation in conventional atoms based quantum optics systems (trapped cold atoms) as well as artificial atoms (such as quantum dots, NV centers), feedback-enhanced quantum metrology with cold atoms in cavities, and designing quantum heat engines with quantum optical systems.

The candidate, with the help of the Principal Investigator, is expected to lead research projects as well as write up the resulting work for publication, co-mentor other junior members in the group. In addition, we expect the candidate to participate in active ongoing collaboration on Quantum Thermodynamics and low dimensional Quantum systems with the group of Prof. Bijay Agarwalla at IISER Pune.


Candidates must have a consistently good scholastic record and a Ph.D. degree in Theoretical Physics with a specialization in Quantum Optics and/or Ultracold atomic physics.

Motivated candidates working in theoretical condensed matter physics, especially with experience in non-equilibrium field theory methods are also encouraged to apply. Candidates who have submitted their thesis are equally eligible for the position.


The appointment is for 1 year


40,000 to 60,000 INR per month based on experience.

Application Procedure

Candidates should send their applications via e-mail with subject line Postdoc2019v2-QO-IITGn to B. Prasanna Venkatesh at prasanna.b@iitgn.ac.in.
