2 PostDoc in Quantum Technology

The ITCM Group at the University of Sussex is looking for candidates to fill two three-year postdoctoral positions in quantum technology.

The ITCM Group combines two of the most successful techniques in quantum information processing: individually trapped ions and strong-coupling cavity-QED and uses to set up a distributed quantum network. The principal challenge is the requirement for miniature-size traps and microscopic optical cavities to provide suitable conditions for a high-fidelity interface between ions and photons.
