PhD position in Quantum Photonics @ Stockholm University

We seek for a talented and independent graduate student who wishes to develop her/his scientific career in a friendly and stimulating environment. This doctoral degree project will be carried out in the Quantum Photonics group led by Ana Predojevic ( The successful candidate should have interest in quantum technologies, specifically quantum information and communication.

The project implementation will involve experimental investigation of semiconductor embedded quantum emitters and state-of-the-art photonic structures. The project will focus on novel sources of quantum light and their use in quantum communication protocols (
