PhD research studentship in Controlled Quantum Dynamics and Circuit QED
Department of Physics, University of Surrey
The Advanced Technology Institute at the University of Surrey consists of approximately 50 researchers working on topics including III-V and silicon based light emitters and detectors, light-matter interaction in microstructured photonic materials, quantum computing with superconducting qubits, spintronics, and energy efficient photonic devices. The institute benefits from strong interaction between experimental and theoretical activities.
We are currently seeking an application for PhD position in theory and numerical simulation under the supervision of Dr Eran Ginossar (Department of Physics & ATI).
Current research topics that are currently being studied in the group include development of numerical simulations for quantum dynamics of artificial quantum devices, nonlinear quantum optics in circuit quantum electrodynamics, quantum engineering and control of superconducting qubits for quantum information processing, mesoscopic electronic interferometers, persistent current in normal metal rings and random lasing.
The proposed project will be one of those listed in http://www.surrey.ac.uk/ati/tac/activity/projects
For additional information about research in the theory and computation group see
In all cases the successful candidate will be encouraged to interact with experimentalists working on the implementation of advanced functionalities in photonic materials and devices.
The studentship includes tuition fees and a tax free maintenance grant of £13,750 p/a for 3 years (subject to satisfactory performance).
Eligible candidates should have a First Class undergraduate degree or Distinction at Masters degree level in Physics or a closely related field.
Please contact Dr Eran Ginossar (firstname.lastname@example.org) for informal enquiries about the post.
These posts are available for 3 years, starting immediately.
