The newly established Quantum Computing Technologies (QCT) group at the Institute for High Energy Physics (IFAE) in Barcelona offers a postdoctoral position within the project SiUCs (Superinductor-based Quantum Technologies with Ultrastrong Couplings) funded by the QuantERA EU program.
The tasks for this position will involve design, fabrication and measurement of superconducting qubit devices coupled to resonator modes to study the physics of this system in regimes of ultrastrong coupling, and its consequences in superconducting-based quantum technologies.
The candidate will closely work in collaboration with the rest of partners in the SiUCs consortium:
Interested candidates are expected to hold a doctoral degree in Physics and must be experienced in experimental superconducting qubit device techniques in at least one of the following areas: quantum optics with superconducting devices, qubit coherent control, quantum simulations with superconducting devices.
Applications should be sent to [email protected] and should include an updated CV with a letter of intent or motivation, and arrange for two or three letters of recommendation. Sending CVs to IFAE implies consent to the legal warning at the bottom of IFAE’s Home Page. See the job posting at IFAE’s website.
The appointment will be for a two years term, with the possibility to renew for a third year.
Proposed start of the appointment: May 1st 2020. The application will be open until the position is filled, not before April 6.
