Job Details

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Superconducting Quantum Circuits.

The post is available initially for a fixed-term duration of 12 months, with the possibility of extension subject to funding.

This project will be on the research and development of high fidelity entangling gate, and address the issues of hardware overhead and thermal load in superconducting circuits for quantum computing.                            

The successful candidate will develop characterisation and benchmarking techniques for quantum algorithms at the scale of 16-transmon device and beyond. The candidate will also contribute towards the design of large scale multiplexing of control and readout drives based on cQED space-time modulation Metasurfaces. The candidate will collect and analyse experimental data, write up for publication, and present their results at research conferences. Their work may involve superconducting microwave circuit design and simulation, theatrical analysis of classical and quantum circuits, development of numerical techniques, cleanroom device fabrication, setup and operation of cryogenic systems, and microwave control electronics and software.                  

The post-holder will have the opportunity to teach.

Applicants should hold a PhD, or be close to completion in physics or electrical engineering or a related field and have a strong background in experimental quantum information and microwave techniques or quantum device physics.   

Previous experience in the field of superconducting quantum circuits, circuit theory and synthesis, and microwave techniques will be an advantage.

Candidates are expected to demonstrate excellent teamwork and communication skills.

You will be required to upload a CV, covering letter and details of two referees as part of your online application.

Please direct enquiries about the role to Mustafa Bakr (

Only applications received before midday (UK time) 15 June 2024 can be considered. You will be required to upload a statement of research interests, CV and details of two referees as part of your online application.
