The Polyquantique research group led by Nicolás Quesada specializes in quantum photonics and quantum information. The group is looking for highly motivated candidates at all levels (graduate students, postdocs) with expertise or interest in quantum photonics, quantum information, quantum optics, quantum metrology, quantum error correction, topological photonics or machine learning.
Quantum computers and simulators have the potential to solve a wide range of problems more efficiently than classical computers. Cold atoms present a leading platform in this context, unmatched in size and scalability. In your thesis work, you will realize a new architecture for a quantum processor, which uniquely combines single-atom resolved manipulation through microscopy with the interaction control arising from light-matter coupling.
We are seeking motivated students with excellent problem-solving skills and a passion for quantum engineering and physics. You will be part of a well funded initiative to create quantum networks of superconducting circuits mediated by telecom photons.
