RWTH Aachen - QuTech, RWTH Aachen University, Germany
We are looking for a motivated postdoctoral researcher paving the way towards industry-compatible qubit device fabrication and a 2x20 electron-spin qubit.
We are a young group consisting of four PostDocs, 15 PhD students and multiple Master- and Bachelor students subdivided in two larger subgroups led by Professor Hendrik Bluhm and Dr. Lars Schreiber focusing on GaAs and silicon-based material systems, respectively. In silicon quantum computation we cooperate with IKZ, IHP, Regensburg University, TU Delft, imec and IP PAS. Mixed task responsibilities, frequent group meetings and group internal seminars share wisdom and knowledge among all group members, while general academic innovations and state-of-the-art are covered by weekly journal clubs. Apart the regular work hours, we arrange multiple pub crawls and institute-retreats including skiing, sailing trips and sport events.
The 2nd institute of physics incorporates multiple different research activities focusing on solid-states experimental physics including quantum technology and 2D materials such as graphene-based research as well as topological insulators. The overall institute provides extensive expertise in low temperature measurements using more than ten cryostats including inhouse helium liquification. Sample fabrication is done in two major cleanroom facilities namely the Central Laboratory for Micro- and Nanotechnology at RWTH and the Helmholtz Nano Facility at FZJ providing together more than 1500 m2 . Further, the quantum technology group represents the experimental part of the overall Jülich-Aachen-Research-Alliance Institute for Quantum Information (JARA-IQI), which is a research collaboration between RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich (FZJ). On the theoretical side within JARA-IQI, groups focus on general quantum information (lead by Prof. David DiVincenzo, Prof. B. Terhal and Prof. F. Hassler).
