Postdoc and PhD Positions in the Theory of Superconducting Circuits
The Quantum Technology and Quantum Dynamics Theory group at FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg, lead by Professor Michael J. Hartmann invites applications for postdoc and PhD positions in the theory and modeling of superconducting quantum hardware.The positions will be part of the newly funded project GeQCoS (‚German Quantum Computer based on Superconducting Qubits’) that will build a superconducting quantum computer in Germany. For more information, see https://www.quantentechnologien.de/forschung/foerderung/quantenprozessoren-und-technologien-fuer-quantencomputer/geqcos.html, https://www.fau.de/2021/01/news/wissenschaft/mit-supraleitenden-qubits-auf-dem-weg-zum-quantencomputer/.
You will be working in close collaboration with the project partners, in particular the teams building the devices at WMI in Garching, KIT in Karlsruhe, Forschungszentrum Jülich and Fraunhofer IAF Freiburg, where you will contribute to the project with designs for novel improved circuit elements and numerical modeling of hardware components and moderate size qubit grids.
To apply, please send your cv, possibly a list of publications and a one page research statement to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also arrange for letters of recommendation to be submitted independently from two scientists familiar with your work.
Applications and supporting material should be sent to email@example.com by February 28, 2021. Later applications by exceptionally strong candidates may also be considered. See here for a PDF of the opening: Postdoc_PhD_GeQCoS.
