Postdoc positions in quantum networks with superconducting circuits, rare-earth ions and integrated photonics (Singapore)

We have openings for talented young scientists who are ready to take up a leadership role in our group and to spearhead new initiatives and provide supervision and guidance to junior members of the team.

You will be part of a well-funded initiative to create quantum networks of superconducting circuits mediated by telecom photons. Your job could include the following subjects:

  • Leading the design and fabrication of superconducting qubits that resist to moderate magnetic fields
  • Spearheading the development and fabrication of chips that combine superconducting circuits and integrated photonics
  • Exploring novel fabrication methods to couple rare-earth ions in solid-state with integrated optics and superconducting circuits
  • Measuring quantum correlations between microwave photons at cryogenic temperature and telecom photons at room temperature.

You will also work closely with the PI to develop future experimental goals and shape the general research direction of the group. There will also be ample opportunity to explore your own ideas and participate in grant-writing processes. We aim to provide you a challenging and supportive environment to perfect your research leadership skills and get ready for your next career step!

Postdoc applicants should have proven research experience and have a strong interest in quantum technologies. Furthermore, a PhD in Experimental Physics or Engineering is required, as well as knowledge on micro and Nano-fabrication, microwave engineering and electronics, as well as cryogenic equipment. Ideally you received your PhD working on superconducting circuits, spin defects in solid-state, integrated optics or quantum optics experiments. An excellent command of the English language is essential.

Our group is strongly committed to increase the representation of women and minorities in STEM at all levels. We therefore particularly encourage applications that will help us in this goal.

Qove Laboratory is led by Presidential Young Professor Steven Touzard and located at the National University of Singapore. The lab is funded by the prestigious NRF Fellowship. Our group works on a large range of quantum technologies, with currently an emphasis on remotely entangling superconducting qubits with telecom photons to form long-range quantum networks.
