One-year secondment : Developer in GNSS time/frequency transfer

The BIPM (International Bureau of Weights and Measures) invites applications for a one-year secondee position in the Time Department, for developments in the field of GNSS time/frequency transfer with PPP and IPPP. The position may be extended to a second year.

Applications should be sent by 20 June 2021.

See more information on duties, employment conditions of such a secondee position, expected qualifications and experience, as well as on the application process in the announcement “One-year secondment – Developer in GNSS time/frequency transfer” at .

The BIPM is located at the Pavillon de Breteuil, Sevres, France, situated in the outskirts of Paris. The Time Department computes and disseminates the international reference time scale Coordinated Universal Time (UTC), and provides traceability to the international system of units (SI) to local realizations of UTC maintained in national institutes.

Several Post-doc, PhD, master student positions available at Max-Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany).

We are starting exciting new experimental projects (in the fields: optical frequency combs, frequency metrology, nonlinear optics, photonics) and we have openings at all levels (post-doc, doctoral/PhD student, master student) for young scientists to join our group.
We can also welcome senior scholars on sabbatical leave (>3 months).
Our group is part of the Max-Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, (Garching, Germany).

The topics of the projects are:

–       Precision spectroscopy of small molecules for tests of fundamental physics

–       Digital holography and 3D-imaging

–       Quantum-enhanced interferometry with frequency combs

–       Frequency combs and frequency-comb spectrometers on a photonic chip


All projects require a passion for challenging experiments and a strong background in optics. Knowledge in atomic/molecular/quantum physics is an asset.

The positions are available immediately and will remain open until filled.
