At the Walther-Meißner-Institut (WMI, https://www.wmi.badw.de/) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences and Humanities (BAdW) in Garching near Munich, Germany, we are offering a Postdoctoral researcher or PhD position for the experimental realization of quantum radar.

THE POSITION is offered in a multidisciplinary collaboration with partners from science and industry located in the Munich area. We aim at the experimental investigation of novel radar paradigms based on propagating quantum microwaves. The work is embedded into the quantum technology network formed by the WMI, the Excellence Cluster MCQST (https://www.mcqst.de/), the TU Munich (https://www.tum.de/), the EU Quantum Flagship project QMiCS (https://qmics.wmi.badw.de), and several companies working on quantum technology in the Munich area. The intended contract duration is 3 years.

YOU are eager to participate in an ambitious experiment based on continuous-variable quantum microwaves generated by superconducting circuits and qubit-based microwave photon detectors. You hold a Master’s or PhD degree in physics or a similar field of study with a solid background in quantum information, quantum communication, or quantum sensing. Proven expertise in the fabrication and/or control of superconducting quantum circuits at microwave frequencies and cryogenic temperatures is considered as an advantage.

APPLICATION DOCUMENTS consist of your CV and a cover letter explaining your motivation. Please send them as a single PDF file to Martina Meven (sekretariat@wmi.badw.de), mentioning the code “2021-FD-01”. For postdoc applications, please including a publication list in your CV and have a reference letter sent directly to the same address. The closing date for applications is May 16, 2021.
