Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Ion Trap Quantum Computing.
The post is available initially for a fixed-term until 31 July 2023, with the possibility of extension depending on funding.
A Postdoctoral Research Assistant position is available at the University of Oxford to work on a project entitled Developing UK Industrial Supply for Commercial Quantum Computing (DISCOVERY).
The activity undertaken in this role will focus primarily on developing and utilising quantum computers that deliver more qubits with higher performance, working in collaboration with a wide range of commercial and academic collaborators. The successful candidate will focus on aggressive development of new tools and methods for scaling trapped-ion quantum processors, and integrate these developments into state-of-the-art quantum computers. They will also undertake advanced characterisations to understand how and why performance losses occur in the quantum processors, and, working closely with partners across the project consortium, reengineer the systems to improve performance.
Applicants should possess, or be close to obtaining, a PhD in physics, computer science, or engineering.
Previous experience in the field of quantum computing, or ion / atom trapping will be highly desirable.
The post-holder will have the opportunity to teach.
Please direct enquiries about the role to:
Dr Chris Ballance firstname.lastname@example.org
Only applications received before midday 30 September 2020 can be considered. You will be required to upload a brief statement of research interests, CV and details of two referees as part of your online application.
