The „Quantum Valley Lower Saxony“ (QVLS-Q1) research consortium, a collaboration between TU Braunschweig, Leibniz University Hannover and Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), aims at realizing a 50-qubit quantum computer based on trapped ions.
The consortium invites applications for the position of Postdoctoral Research Associates and Research Assistants (m/f/d) in Quantum Technologies focusing on the operation and automation of ion-trap quantum computers at the earliest possible date. The position is limited to 3 years with a possibility of extension. The locations are Hannover and Braunschweig, Germany.
The control of quantum states of trapped ions is one of the most advanced approaches on the way towards error tolerant programmable quantum computers. Based on microstructured surface-electrode ion trap technology with integrated microwave control, a 50-qubit system will be built, with expert teams focusing on all aspects from chip design and fabrication with integrated optics and electronics to electronic circuit design, laser technology and software design for a wide range of applications.
We are part of an excellent research environment with access to the unique infrastructure of the whole consortium. The team is working in an excellent national and international network and is participating – besides QVSL-Q1 – in important large collaborative projects, including the Cluster of Excellence „QuantumFrontiers“.
