Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Optically Networked Quantum Spin Registers in Diamond
We are looking for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Optically Networked Quantum Spin Registers in Diamond in the Department of Materials.
The post is fixed-term up to 30 November 2019.
You will play a central role in the development of optically networked quantum spin registers in diamond, within the UK Hub in Networked Quantum Information Technologies (NQIT), co-ordinated by the University of Oxford. The project goals are to develop diamond quantum technologies based on high efficiency spin-photon interfaces in which nitrogen vacancy defects written into diamond using laser processing techniques are coupled to bespoke optical microcavities.
You will play a key role within the Oxford group and collaborate with team members at partner universities (Cambridge, Warwick, and Strathclyde). You will be undertaking research in the engineering of colour centres in diamond using laser writing techniques; coupling of single NV- defects to optical microcavities at cryogenic temperatures; development of spin control techniques and logical operations; and entanglement of NV centres across an optical network
With a first degree and doctorate in physics, materials science, chemistry, engineering or related discipline; you will be well organised and self-motivated with the ability to manage the day-to-day running of a research project, to identify research objectives and carry out appropriate research activities within a given time-scale. You will have a sound grasp of quantum mechanics, optics, and atomic/molecular/solid state physics.
