Job description:

QNanoLight ( is offering positions for excellent postdoctoral researchers and PhD students to work on the development of different quantum technologies based on nanophotonic platforms.

We are looking for a research associate and a PhD student to work on practical aspects of quantum cryptography. The position is part of the Swiss National Science Foundation Practice-to-Science grant “Quantum cryptography in practice”. This project investigates practical quantum key distribution and quantum random number generation protocols, analyses their security, and develops secure and efficient alternative protocols.

We are seeking a suitably qualified postdoctoral fellow to be part of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems (EQuS) project team within the School of Mathematics and Physical Sciences at Macquarie University.

The position is embedded in the project “Photonic Quantum Computing (PhoQC)” of the Ministerium für Kultur und Wissenschaft of the state of Northrhine-Westfalia (MKW NRW). Employment ends on 31.10.2024 and adheres to the legal regulations laid out in the WissZeitVG.

Specifically, we are looking for a project leader in the field of theoretical physics who will advance the de- sign and optimisation of photonic quantum systems based on numerical simulations at the Institute for Pho- tonic Quantum Systems (PhoQS). The following are examples of relevant tasks:
