The Quantum Computing Technology group at IFAE (Barcelona) is offering a postdoctoral position on superconducting qubit research. This position is joint between IFAE and the Institute of Microelectronics of Barcelona (IMB-CNM-CSIC).

The project involves experimental techniques aiming to improve superconducting qubit quality by combining nanofabrication and noise filtering techniques. The project will look at improving qubit coherence time and parameter reproducibility by reduction of on-chip microscopic flux and charge noise following state-of-the-art nanolithography and processing techniques.

Interested candidates are expected to:

  • Hold a doctoral degree in Quantum Physics
  • Be experienced in experimental techniques, in at least one of the following areas:
    • Superconducting Quantum devices
    • Microwave Quantum coherent control,
    • Device fabrication,
    • Cryogenics

Applications should be sent to [email protected] and [email protected]. They should include an updated CV with a letter of intent or motivation, and arrange for 3 letters of recommendation. The appointment will be for a 2 years term, with the possibility to renew for a third year.

The application will be open until the position is filled, not before March 14th.
