PhD position in quantum optimal control theory at the University of Bourgogne

This PhD project aims at applying innovative mathematical tools coming

from optimal control theory to improve theoretical and experimental techniques

in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), in Electron Spin Resonance (ESR) and in NV

centers. This approach will allow us to explore and to experimentally reach the

physical limits of the corresponding spin dynamics in presence of typical

experimental imperfections and limitations. A first objective will be to

develop new optimal control algorithms able for an inhomogeneous ensemble of

spins to maximize the signal to noise ratio per unit time of the system. A

general problem is to generalize the Ernst angle solution used in NMR, which is

only valid for a homogeneous spin ensemble. This work will be done in

collaboration with the group of S. Glaser (TUM, Munich, Germany). This approach

will find different applications in NMR and ESR where the sensitivity of the

experiment is a crucial parameter. The student will focus on a specific

experimental setup in ESR used by the group of P. Bertet (CEA, Paris Saclay),

where an important goal is the maximization of the emitted signal of spins

coupled to a microwave resonator. The student will take into account in the

numerical computation specific constraints of this experimental setup. In the

same direction, the student will also use optimal control techniques to design

new CMPG sequences accounting for the coupling between the spins and the

cavity. The same types of control techniques will also be used for manipulating

NV ensembles in collaboration with the group of T. Debuisschert (Thalès,

Paris). This will allow the improvement of the sensitivity of the corresponding

experiments. For a more fundamental point of view, the ESR will investigate the

numerical techniques used to design robust control fields with respect to

experimental imperfections. A first objective will be to understand the

efficiency of these methods and to prove the optimality (this concept will be

to define rigorously) of the control fields. The ESR will mainly study spin

systems but it is clear that the results of this project will not be restricted

to the physical systems investigated and the techniques developed during the

PhD could be applied to other physical systems with similar properties.

The Eiffel Excellence Scholarship Programme in France for International Students, 2018

The French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development has established The Eiffel Excellence Scholarship Programme to enable French higher education establishments to attract top foreign students to enrol in their master’s and PhD courses.

This programme funds master’s courses lasting between 12 and 36 months and offers funding for PhD students to spend ten months in France through joint supervision or a joint direction of thesis (preferably the 2nd year of the PhD).

The purpose of the scholarship is helping to shape the future foreign decision-makers of the private and public sectors, in priority areas of study, and encourages applications from emerging countries at master’s level, and from emerging and industrialized countries at PhD level.

Scholarship Host

French Universities and Academic Institutions

Field of Study

The scholarship available for Master’s degree programme or in a PhD programme in four major fields:

• law;

• economics and management;• engineering sciences at Masters’ level, sciences in the broad sense for the Doctorate/PhD level (engineering science; exact sciences: mathematics, physics, chemistry and life sciences, nano and biotechnologies, Earth, space and environmental sciences, information sciences and technologies and communication);• political sciences

Level of Study

Masters/PhD Degree

Intended Group

International students

Scholarship Value

For Master’s level studies, the Eiffel scholarship includes a monthly allowance of €1,181 (a maintenance allowance of €1,031 and a monthly stipend of €150) and can be awarded for 12-36 months.  For PhD level studies, the Eiffel scholarship includes a monthly allowance of €1,400 and is awarded for a maximum of ten months.

In addition, the programme meets various expenses including international return trip, social security cover, and cultural activities. Scholarship holders may also receive an additional housing allowance, under certain conditions.

Tuition fees are not covered by the Eiffel Programme.

Application Deadline

12 January 2018

Applicant Eligibility

– The scholarship is reserved for candidates of non-French nationality. Candidates with two nationalities, one of which is French, are not eligible.

– For Master’s level, the candidate must be at most 30 years old on the date of the selection committee; born on or after 12 March 1987. For Doctoral level, the candidate must be at most 35 years old on the date of the selection committee; born on or after 12 March 1982.

Origin of applications: Only applications submitted by French educational establishments are accepted. These establishments undertake to enrol scholarship holders on the course for which they have been selected. Applications submitted by any other means shall not be considered. Furthermore, any candidate nominated by more than one establishment shall be disqualified.

Courses of study: Scholarships are for students wishing to enrol on a master’s course, including at an engineering school, and for PhD students. The Eiffel Programme does not apply to French-run master’s courses abroad, as non-PhD scholarship holders must complete at least 75% of their course in France. It does not apply to training under an apprenticeship contract or a professional training contract either.

Combination with other scholarships: Foreign students who, at the time of application, have already been awarded a French government scholarship under another programme are not eligible, even if the scholarship in question does not include social security cover.

For Eiffel Master Scholarship:  No application will be accepted for any student who applied previously but was rejected, even if the application is submitted by a different establishment or in another field of study. Students who have already been awarded an Eiffel scholarship at master’s level are not eligible to re-apply at master’s level.

For Eiffel PhD Scholarship: Establishments may nominate a candidate who was previously awarded an Eiffel scholarship at master’s level for a scholarship at PhD level. Candidates who have already been awarded an Eiffel scholarship once during their PhD cannot be awarded it for a second time. No application will be accepted for any student who applied previously but was rejected, even if the application is submitted by a different establishment or in another field of study.

Language skills: When pre-selecting non-French-speaking candidates, establishments must make sure that their language skills meet the requirements of the relevant course of study.

Students undertaking a course of study abroad take priority over those already living in France.

Application instructions:

Please be noted, applications are not accepted from students directly. Applications for EIFFEL scholarships are submitted by French Higher Education Institutions. You must apply and meet the requirements of the French Higher Education Institution in order to be considered for the scholarship.  The deadline for applications to Campus France is 12 January 2018. Application deadline to participating French Institutions is earlier and falls around November-December 2017.Please visit official scholarship website on below link for more information about the scholarship.
