PostDoc 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 have a background in experimental quantum physics (in particular with atoms or ions, but not exclusively) and you should be interested in the technology around ultracold atoms.

The experiment is just starting, so you not only have the chance to significantly contribute to its design with your own ideas, but also develop a unique scientific profile. The position is available for the full 5 years.
