OFFER DESCRIPTION

The newly established Quantum Computing Technologies (QCT) group at the Institute for High Energy Physics (IFAE) in Barcelona offers a PhD 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:

-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 master's degree in Physics and preferably must be experienced in experimental techniques such as superconductivity, solid state-based quantum information, quantum optics, quantum simulation, cryogenics, microwave engineering, programming.

Applications should be sent to pforndiaz@ifae.es 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 three years term, with the possibility to renew for a fourth year.
