PhD Student Position in Quantum Optics with Superconducting Circuits
At the Quantum Device Lab (www.qudev.ethz.ch ), led by Christopher Eichler and Andreas Wallraff at the Department of Physics (www.phys.ethz.ch ), we conduct state of the art experimental research in quantum information science and quantum optics with superconducting electronic circuits. In addition, we pursue the development of hybrid quantum systems combining superconductors with semiconductor nanostructures. To strengthen our research and development activities we are looking for a highly motivated PhD student in Quantum Optics with Superconducting Circuits.
As a successful candidate, you will perform collaborative research to study fundamental quantum optical phenomena and their applications in quantum information processing. This research is carried out in the context of the project “Quantum Photonics with Microwaves in Superconducting Circuits” funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation. Your main research goal will be the development of novel coupling, control and detection schemes in circuit quantum electrodynamics architectures and their use for the generation and characterization of quantum many-body states of microwave radiation. Your project will be embedded in the Swiss Quantum Science and Technology Network QSIT (www.nccr-qsit.ethz.ch ) with more than 30 partners across all of Switzerland. You will have the unique opportunity to contribute to a strong research program conducted at a leading European research institution. ETH Zurich provides a stimulating interdisciplinary research environment in quantum information science. This is combined with some of the world's best infrastructure for performing top-level research, such as our centers for micro- and nanoscience (www.first.ethz.ch and www.brnc.ethz.ch ). Our lab is in Zurich, an international city with high quality of life, situated in the heart of Europe.
A strong interest in experimental realizations of quantum information processing systems and dedication to pursue a successful career in research, development or education either in academia or industry are a requirement. Ideally, you have experience and a proven record in one or more of the following: quantum information processing and its implementations (e.g. with superconducting circuits, quantum dots, ion traps, NMR), experimental quantum optics and atomic physics (cavity quantum electrodynamics), micro and nano-electronic devices and their fabrication (clean room lithography and deposition techniques), mesoscopic solid state physics, low temperature physics, transport measurements at dilution refrigerator temperatures, microwave electronics, digital electronics, FPGAs, instrumentation, and software development.
ETH Zurich is one of the world’s leading universities specialising in science and technology. We are renowned for our excellent education, cutting-edge fundamental research and direct transfer of new knowledge into society. Over 30,000 people from more than 120 countries find our university to be a place that promotes independent thinking and an environment that inspires excellence. Located in the heart of Europe, yet forging connections all over the world, we work together to develop solutions for the global challenges of today and tomorrow.
We look forward to receiving your online application including:
- a detailed curriculum vitae,
- a list of publications,
- a statement of research interests, containing a short description of your background, motivation and skills,
- pdf copies of bachelor, master, and PhD theses (as available),
- names of three contacts for references. Please arrange for one or more of the reference letters to be sent directly by email to firstname.lastname@example.org . Thank you for using the ETH Zurich’s online application portal to officially submit your application. Consideration of applications will begin immediately and will continue until we have filled the position.
