Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in experimental quantum device physics. The post is available initially for a fixed-term duration of 24 months, with the possibility of further extension.
A highly motivated individual is sought to join our team in Oxford working on the development of superconducting circuit quantum technology. The position is primarily to work on development of parametric amplifiers and their use in performing readout of superconducting qubits for quantum computing and in mm-wave detection in astrophysics. The project will be associated with the Oxford Centre for Applied Superconductivity and Oxford Instruments. The position will also be supported by the Networked Quantum Information Technologies hub, and connected to the hub’s superconducting quantum computing activity. The successful candidate will benefit from being part of a strong community of superconducting device and quantum technology researchers at Oxford, and will be expected to play a team role, working closely with graduate students and other PDRAs. The project may involve liaising with industrial contacts on potential device integration and commercialisation.
Applicants should possess, or be very close to obtaining a doctorate in physics or electronic engineering and be able to demonstrate experience in experimental quantum information or device physics research, or in a closely related field. Experience of superconducting device fabrication, cryogenic measurement setups, and microwave engineering will be an advantage.
Please direct enquiries about the role to Peter Leek (firstname.lastname@example.org).
An exciting new opportunity is available to join our NQIT team, developing and commercialising aspects of a flagship research project. The NQIT Hub builds on the world’s most advanced quantum research to develop practical technologies in entirely new sectors. It is funded by an award of £38m to a consortium of nine universities and is supported by a number of commercial and governmental partners.
The post is available for a fixed-term of 1 year, with the possibility of extension. Secondments will be considered.
As part of EPSRC’s £270m National Quantum Technologies Programme, the Hub has an international profile and corresponding responsibilities to achieve the highest levels of success. Effective communication with consortium members, partners and stakeholders will be crucial to the Hub’s mission and thus an important part of this role, as will the building of relationships with new external partners.
The successful candidate will be required to gain an in-depth knowledge of the relevant science therefore applicants should possess a physical science or engineering degree. Good interpersonal and communication skills are essential. Candidates are expected to demonstrate the ability to liaise effectively with a wide range of people within and beyond the University, including academic staff, industrial collaborators and funding agencies. Previous experience of working in collaborative teams involving both academia and industry would be an advantage.
