We offer a 2-years post-doctoral position for a motivated researcher to join our work on spin qubits in silicon carbide (SiC). Colour centres in SiC have recently be shown to uniquely combine excellent spin properties with ultrastable optical transitions for spin-photon interfacing (see, for example, our collaborative work publish in Nature Communications 10, 1954). Our goal is to develop quantum devices, integrating spintronic, electronic and photonic functionalities on a single chip, by exploiting the power of a technologically-mature semiconductor platform.
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.
