Applications are invited for a postdoctoral researcher position in quantum information science with the University of Kansas beginning as early as April 1, 2021. Postdoctoral researcher candidates are required to have a Ph.D. in physics by date of appointment and research experience in quantum information science or a related experimental field. The person would work with the University of Kansas quantum information science (QIS) group on the experimental implementation of superconducting quantum/neuromorphic computing. Candidates with relevant interests and experience, especially those who are skilled at UHV thin-film deposition, nanofabrication and cryogenic temperature characterization, are sought.
The University of Kansas QIS group is pursuing a broad and exciting research program, with elements including superconducting neuromorphic computing devices and circuits, nanoscale superconducting quantum interference devices (nanoSQUIDs), and unconventional superconducting qubits. The group’s research interests focus on nanoscale quantum devices and circuits for next-generation advanced computing, which has broad impact on many applications, such as homeland security, artificial intelligence, new medicines design etc. The post-doctoral researcher would be expected to participate in many of these activities, taking a leadership role in advancing the group’s research program, interacting with and mentoring students, and engaging in creative and independent thought.
