Within the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF)-funded project ‘Elements for Quantum Information Processing with Semiconductor/Superconductor Hybrids (EQUIPS)’ we search to employ a talented, skilled and highly motivated

Doctoral Student or Postdoctoral Researcher (100%) in Quantum Hybrid Systems
The research position aims at exploring concepts of semiconductor circuit QED with GaAs based double QD (DQD) charge qubits strongly coupled to high impedance microwave resonators made from Josephson junction arrays or high kinetic inductance thin films. Furthermore, we plan to transition to Si based QDs with natural or induced spin-orbit coupling to employ the more coherent spin degree of freedom of electrons in DQDs. Circuit QED in the strong coupling regime will allow quantum non-demolition (QND) read-out of qubits, remote coupling between qubits, and communication between on-chip quantum device elements.

The work will be done in close collaboration with the Nanophysics Group at the Department of Physics of ETH Zurich. The position is available immediately. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.

Candidates are required to have a Master/PhD with a focus on quantum physics and, ideally, a solid background in quantum information processing with superconducting circuits and/or semiconductor qubits. The successful candidate is curious to learn new experimental techniques and is eager to expand their current expertise in microwave engineering, signal processing, nano- and micro-fabrication, low-temperature and semiconductor physics, control and measurement automation or data analysis (Mathematica, Matlab, Python, etc…).
We look forward to receiving online application including a cover letter, a detailed CV, a list of studied subject areas including transcripts and contact information to request two recommendation letters. Please note that we exclusively accept applications submitted through our online application portal. Applications via email or postal services will not be considered.

For further information about the position and the group please contact Dr. Pasquale Scarlino by e-mail at pscarlin[at]phys.ethz.ch (no applications) or visit our websites https://qudev.phys.ethz.ch.
