Postdoctoral position on Ultrastrong Coupling with Superinductors

–Vacancy already filled–

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 European QuantERA 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:

  • Nicolas Roch (Néel Institute CNRS, Grenoble, FR)
  • Ioan Pop (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, DE)
  • Milena Grifoni (Regensburg University, Institute for Theoretical Physics, DE)
  • Miroslav Grajcar (Institute of Physics, Slovak Academy of Sciences, SK)
  • Elisabetta Paladino (Consiglio Nationale delle Richerche Catania, IT)

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 Pol Forn-Díaz 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 homepage, 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 1, 2020. The application will be open until the position is filled, but not before April 6.
