Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Ion Quantum Technology and Nanoscience / Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Ion Quantum Technology and Nanoscience position in the Ion Quantum Technology Group in the Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Sussex. The duration of the position is originally for 1 year with the possibility of an extension for a further 2.5 years based on research requirements. The position is part of an EPSRC funded £1.4M Leadership fellowship for the development of quantum technology with nanofabricated ion trap chips.

A position for experimental research in the fabrication and characterization of carbon-based materials and devices is available immediately, until April 2013. The primary materials will be single-walled carbon nanotubes filled with fullerene molecules containing spin-active species. The research will involve fabricating devices with non-standard geometries, filling them with endohedral fullerenes, structural characterization by force and electron microscopy, and electrical characterization.

A postdoctoral position is available immediately for up to three years for experimental research in quantum control of spin states in condensed matter. These experiments will involve electron and nuclear magnetic resonance and related quantum control, including pulsed magnetic resonance spectroscopy, possibly with optical excitation and/or electrical detection.

PhD position in Quantum Random Walks, funded by IRCSET (essentially the Irish government). Application is directly through IRCSET at http://www.ircset.ie/Default.aspx?tabid=66

This is a theoretical project that addresses foundational aspects of quantum information processing with a focus on structural features of qudit systems. While much effort has been spent on investigating quantum state spaces, relatively little is known about the structure of quantum observables. The mathematical duality of states and observables provides a guarantee that whatever one learns about one side is relevant for the other, so that it is to be expected that studying structures of quantum observables will provide a new angle and open up new questions.
