Research Associate in Experimental Quantum Communications

Job type: 

Application deadline: 

Thursday, April 15, 2021

We are seeking a talented postdoctoral research associate to work on an experimental project looking at evaluating quantum random number generators (QRNGs). This position is funded by the EPSRC’s Quantum Communications Hub and will be based at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) in Teddington (London) in the Quantum Photonics team. The project will involve developing the necessary experimental understanding, expertise and techniques to test quantum photonic QRNGs. The developed approach will be applied to commercial devices, and contribute to the development of a UK security evaluation process for these devices.

This is a fixed term position to start as soon as possible with an end date of 30 November 2022 with the possibility of an extension up to a further 24 months after that date. You will be based at NPL at Teddington and the University of York will employ you throughout your contract. Please use the link above for more information and to apply.
