Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Microwave-to-optical Conversion using Molecular Spin Ensembles

University of Oxford - Department of Materials

We are seeking a Postdoctoral Researcher to join an international collaborative project to create a comprehensive formalism for the description and control of classical and quantum networks. You will have specific responsibility for development of quantum coherent microwave to optical frequency conversion, a goal with wide technological and scientific importance.

You will work on experimental development of quantum coherent microwave to optical conversion, and testing the systems using the hardware-in-the-loop facility. You will also contribute to foundational questions about the nature of quantum networks.

You will have a good first degree and have completed (or be close to completing) a doctorate in the physical sciences. You will also demonstrate expertise in one or more of the following: (a) synthesis and assembly of relevant molecules and materials, (b) superconducting resonators, (c) electron spin resonance, (d) optical molecular spectroscopy, including at low temperature.

The position is fixed-term to 30 September 2019. 

The Department of Materials is actively promoting the provision of a family friendly working environment and together with the University of Oxford recognises the demands of work/life balance. Therefore for this project we encourage applications from candidates who wish either to hold these positions on a full-time, or part-time basis or need flexibility in their working hours and will discuss these opportunities with shortlisted applicants at interview.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 midday on 4 January 2017.
