Vacancies & Studentships
EPSRC DTP Studentships to support PhD / DPhil students on projects aligned with the NQIT research programme for entry in Sep/Oct 2019 will be coming soon… watch this space!
Application deadline is January 31 for UK/EU students, January 18 is for international students.
The University of Warwick is looking for a graduate student to join the quantum information science group of Animesh Datta. The goals of this theoretical project are to produce the design principles for quantum sensors that can tackle some of the most fundamental open problems in physics. Instances include the direct detection of dark matter, testing the validity of quantum mechanics in macroscopic systems, searching for time variation of fundamental constants, and the direct detection of gravitational waves from exotic sources. The principle underlying all of these quests is the precise sensing of physical observables such as exquisitely small forces, phases, displacements and temperature.
The student must be interested in a close interplay of quantum metrology, quantum information science, quantum optics, and quantum mechanics.
See www.warwick.ac.uk/qinfo/join for details of the project and application instructions.
Nu Quantum is a young and dynamic high-tech company that specialises in modular hardware for Quantum Cybersecurity: a platform single-photon source array technology for use in Quantum Random Number Generators and Quantum Key Distribution.
Nu Quantum, a recent spin-out from the University of Cambridge with strong links to the Quantum Optical Materials and Systems Group of the Cavendish Laboratory, is looking for quantum device engineers with experience in optoelectronic device fabrication and processing with atomically thin two-dimensional materials.
This position is ideally suited for those who are about to finish their PhD or Postdoc, and are curious about industrial quantum technologies research and the cutting-edge spin-off environment.
You will have full access to the fabrication and characterisation facilities at the University, and enjoy a collaborative environment comprising academic and industrial researchers, geared towards rapid prototyping of novel heterostructures on the way to product development.
Length of Position: 12 months in the first instance with possibility to extend.
Salary: Senior-level postdoctoral researcher equivalent.
Start date: February 1st, 2019, but it is flexible.
Desirable Experience: 2d material processing, optoelectronic device fabrication, basic optoelectronic device characterisation, cleanroom operations, overall being technically astute and creative.
