Our group currently consists of four Post-doctoral researchers, nine full time DPhil students and is headed by Dr. D. Jaksch. Details are available in the members area. If you are interested in joining us then we can provide you with further information and look forward to hearing from you. You are invited to apply for a DPhil place at any time of the year following the standard postgraduate application procedures of the university. Open positions for Post-Docs are advertised on the Atomic and Laser website.
