We are looking for highly motivated, enthusiastic, and team-oriented candidates for several new projects concerning experimental photonic quantum information processing.

Job description
• construction, test and chip-integration of photon pair and entangled photon sources based on spontaneous parametric down-conversion at 1550nm for use in quantum networks and for photonic quantum computing
• generation of novel photonic quantum states (cluster states, GKP states) and evaluation of their prospect for photonic quantum computing
• investigation of quantum memories in atomic vapor cells and development of concepts for their integration in fiber-based quantum networks
• modular integration of sources, frequency-converters, and memories for scalable processing platforms and quantum networks

Your profile
• completed university degree in physics, quantum information or related field
• previous knowledge of experimental quantum optics
• the ability to work in a structured and independent manner
• excellent problem-solving skills
• excellent team and communication skills
• excellent language skills in German or English

Additional requirements for postdoc:
• doctorate in physics, quantum information or related field
• expertise in experimental quantum optics/photonics, photon emitters, quantum memories
• excellent organizational skills
• experience in supervision of students

We offer
• exciting work environment on an attractive research campus
• stimulating exchange within a larger research consortium
• participation in conferences and international exchange
• three years contract with 75% of salary grade E 13 TV-L HU (PhD candidates); two years contract (extension option after 2 years) with 100% of salary grade E 13 TV-L HU
