March 2020 - Postdoctoral position at the Quantum Computing Technology Group, IFAE

Publication date: 19 March 2020


This position has been 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 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 the 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.
