PhD

We offer a 3.5-years PhD position for a motivated researcher to join our work on adaptive quantum sensing. Our goal is to develop an automatic quantum sensor, based on a single spin in diamond, enhanced by machine learning algorithms. The sensor will automatically optimize its settings to operate in conditions of maximum sensitivity, minimizing the estimation times.

We offer a 3.5-years PhD 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. Our goal is to exploit the technological properties of this semiconductor, with established growth, doping and fabrication, to develop quantum devices to build building blocks for the future Quantum Internet.

At Xanadu, we are learners, innovators, researchers, collaborators and problem solvers. We are creating something that has never been built before. What we are doing is extremely hard, the classic moon shot. Few people in their life will be able to be a part of something like this, where if we are successful, the technologies we develop will solve some of the world’s most challenging problems, and literally change the world. And that is something to be excited about!

Starting in October 2021, the group of Dr. Animesh Datta at the University of Warwick, UK is seeking a PhD student each for

1. Quantum-enhanced interferometry for new physics

2. Accreditation of quantum simulators

Exceptional international & EU students can be nominated for scholarships.

See here for details.

15 PhD positions (36 months) within the framework of the EU funded Marie Sklodowska-Curie Action Project (Innovative Training Network ITN) MOQS (Molecular Quantum Simulations) on offer: In this exciting project, chemistry, solid state- and quantum optical physics, materials sciences as well as classical and quantum computer science are brought together to develop new and powerful technologies, with applications ranging from chemistry to the the pharmaceutical industry. Both academic and industry projects are available.
