We currently offer the following research projects in our group

PhD position in experimental quantum computing

New position linked to the project “Interaction of Cosmic Radiation with Qubits (ICRQ)”, where novel superconducting qubit circuits are being investigated with higher resilience to environmental radioactivity and cosmic rays by mitigation of ionizing radiation in the neighbourhood of the device and by implementing on-chip mitigation strategies such as phonon and quasiparticle traps. The project will involve performing measurements at the underground laboratory of Canfranc (LSC), located in the Spanish Pyrenees. The ICRQ project is coordinated by IFAE and it involves LSC and the Institute of Microelectronics of Barcelona (IMB-CNM-CSIC) as partners.
