Two postdoctoral fellowships and two PhD student positions are available in the Baugh group at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC), University of Waterloo. We anticipate 2-year postdoctoral appointments, with the possibility of a 3rd year, contingent on performance and funding. These appointments may begin as early as September 2017. Excellent candidates are sought with an experimental background in semiconductor devices, nano- and micro-fabrication, and cryogenic transport measurements. A PhD in Physics, Applied/Engineering Physics or closely related fields is required. Experience with device modeling using finite element methods is applicable, as well as knowledge of techniques in classical/quantum optics and spectroscopy.
IQC is a world-leading institute for research in quantum information with 26 faculty members and >160 students and postdocs. New infrastructure, including an advanced nanofabrication and metrology centre, support an expansion of experimental research programs at IQC. Waterloo Region is one of Canada's leading technology hubs with a thriving culture of innovation.
