We are seeking a research associate to work on research projects in practical aspects of quantum cryptography and IT security. This position is part of the Swiss National Science Foundation Practice-to-Science grant “Quantum cryptography in practice”.
Candidates should have good software engineering skills and a strong background in IT security and/or cryptography; knowledge in quantum information advantageous.

The „Quantum Valley Lower Saxony“ (QVLS-Q1) research consortium, a collaboration between TU Braunschweig, Leibniz University Hannover and Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB), aims at realizing a 50-qubit quantum computer based on trapped ions.

The consortium invites applications for the position of a Junior Research Group Leader (m/f/d) in Cloud-based Quantum Technologies (Salary Scale 14 TV-L, 100 %) at the earliest possible date. The position is limited to 3 years with a possibility of extension. The location is Hannover.

The role

Nu Quantum has created a new way of achieving single-photon detection using a proprietary semiconductor structure. You will be part of the team developing the first and second generation of Nu Quantum single-photon detector products. You will be involved in the design, test, and optimisation of the single-photon detectors, as well as the design, implementation, and use of the single-photon measurement and characterisation suite.


The role

Nu Quantum is developing novel quantum photonics components employing proprietary nanostructures. You will be involved in the cleanroom nanofabrication and processing of these devices and will be part of the team designing, testing and optimising the technology.


The ideal candidate will have the following skills/experience/qualifications:

5+ years industry or academic cleanroom nanofabrication experience, specialising in (III-V) semiconductor photonics or optoelectronics. Skills:

The Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research (ICCMR) at the University of Plymouth, UK, is seeking to recruit a Research Assistant with expertise in software development and quantum computing, and familiarity with the field of computer music, to work on the “Quantum Computing and Music” project.

The objective of the project is to initiate the development of an open source (GitHub based) programming toolbox designed for sound and music with quantum computing, accompanied with tutorials and demonstrations.
