Research Fellow (Superconducting Circuits and Rare-earth Ions)

Date: 26 Mar 2024

Location: COLLEGE OF DESIGN & ENG, Kent Ridge Campus, SG

Company: National University of Singapore

Job Description

We have openings for talented scientists who are ready to take up a leadership role in our group and to spearhead new initiatives and provide guidance to less experienced members. You will be part of a well-funded initiative to create hybrid systems with superconducting circuits and rare-earth ions for quantum information processing. If your profile includes an inclination for nano-fabrication, you may be working on the following:

•    Leading the measurement of superconducting circuits in state-of-the-art systems;
•    Operating dilution refrigerators (Bluefors LD400); and large superconducting electro-magnets (up to 1 Tesla);
•    Mentoring graduate students;
•    Spearheading the development and fabrication of chips that combine superconducting circuits and rare-earth ions (including on-site lithography and metal deposition);
•    Exploring novel fabrication methods to couple rare-earth ions in solid-state with integrated optics and superconducting circuits;


You will work closely with the PI to develop future experimental goals and shape the general research direction of the group. We aim to provide a challenging and supportive environment to perfect your research leadership skills and get ready for your next career step. You will be evolving in Singapore's highly fruitful Quantum Ecosystem that provides ample opportunities for funding and career prospects. Postdoc applicants should have proven research experience and have a strong interest in quantum technologies as well as:

•   PhD in Experimental Physics or Engineering;
•  PhD working on superconducting circuits, spin defects in solid-state, integrated optics or quantum optics experiments;
•   A good knowledge of quantum mechanics / quantum optics is required.
