Job DescriptionPosition Overview
The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Kansas seeks to fill a postdoctoral researcher position in quantum information science.
Starting Date: April 1, 2021, or as soon thereafter as the position can be filled (also negotiable).
Length of Appointment: Initial appointment is for one year with the possibility of renewal annually for four subsequent years subject to review and continued grant funding.
GENERAL DUTIES: Research in Experimental implementation of superconducting quantum/neuromorphic computing. The successful candidate will contribute to several aspects of the experimental quantum information science group's research program including material and device physics, modeling and simulation, nanofabrication, characterization, data analysis, and publication of research results.
Conduct research in experimental quantum information science in collaboration with members of the University of Kansas condense matter physics. This requires participation in relevant aspects of the overall research work of nano-scale quantum devices and circuits for next-generation advanced computing, including experimental design, feasibility studies, circuit simulation and design, circuit fabrication and characterization, data acquisition and analysis, publications preparation, proposal preparation, editorial work, presentation of results, outreach and career development.
Experimental implementation of superconducting quantum/neuromorphic computing.
Development of new quantum devices and circuits applicable to quantum computing and neuromorphic computing.
Documentation, presentation and publication of research results.
Appropriate contributions to the group's responsibilities in the quantum information science experiment.
Current responsibilities include contributions to the nanoSQUIDs and unconventional transmon qubits.
Assist the faculty in guiding the group's graduate and undergraduate students.
Due to COVID restrictions, this position may begin as a hybrid of on-site and telework, and may transition to on-site work when deemed safe and necessary.
