PhD positions in Tweezer Arrays Laboratory

PhD positions in Tweezer Arrays Laboratory

Supervisor: Huanqian Loh    

Tweezer arrays have become one of the hottest platforms for quantum simulation since the 2016 Science results demonstrating the ease of reconfigurability. With two experimental setups, the quantum control of dipolar quantum particles in tweezer arrays for simulating advanced materials is the main focus of the Loh group. We have open positions for incoming PhD students (start date: around August 2021).



Incoming PhD students will work in closely knit teams and have the opportunity to be mentored by senior team members while gaining valuable skills in optics, electronics, mechanical design, and programming. You will have opportunities to develop your own scientific ideas over the course of your PhD, and in turn mentor junior members when you eventually lead the experiment.



Lab-bonding sessions, and a supportive bunch of labmates to keep you sane while you go through your PhD journey



Students should have a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in physics or engineering physics by the time they enroll in CQT. You should ideally have a strong background in quantum physics and atomic physics, with some prior laboratory experience preferred but not strictly required.


How to apply:

Talented and motivated students are highly encouraged to apply for the CQT scholarship program, which accepts applications all year round and offers generous financial support along with a world-class education at NUS, which is consistently ranked among the top universities in Asia.


Interested students are strongly encouraged to contact Huanqian at


Applications should include a CV, academic transcript, and contact information of 2 referees. We accept applications from now until the positions are filed.
