PhD position in quantum computing with ultracold atoms in tweezers (Tuebingen/Germany)

Job type: 

Application deadline: 

Monday, January 31, 2022

Research group: 

We are building a new team to develop a cryogenic atomic quantum processor based on strontium atoms in optical tweezers in a 4K environment. The project is embedded in a large concerted effort to build a strontium quantum computing demonstrator (MUNIQC-ATOMS, funded by the German ministry of education and research). The project will start in January 2022 with a time frame of 5 years.

If you are interested to join us in this challenging adventure please apply by sending an email to Christian ( You should be interested in the technology around ultracold atoms and have fun at lab work and at tinkering with technology.

The experiment is just starting, so you have the chance to significantly contribute to its design with your own ideas and become an expert in the full stack of experimental techniques around ultracold atoms and Rydberg atoms.
