Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Ion Quantum Technology and Nanoscience / Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Ion Quantum Technology and Nanoscience position in the Ion Quantum Technology Group in the Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Sussex. The duration of the position is originally for 1 year with the possibility of an extension for a further 2.5 years based on research requirements. The position is part of an EPSRC funded £1.4M Leadership fellowship for the development of quantum technology with nanofabricated ion trap chips.

A position for experimental research in the fabrication and characterization of carbon-based materials and devices is available immediately, until April 2013. The primary materials will be single-walled carbon nanotubes filled with fullerene molecules containing spin-active species. The research will involve fabricating devices with non-standard geometries, filling them with endohedral fullerenes, structural characterization by force and electron microscopy, and electrical characterization.

A postdoctoral position is available immediately for up to three years for experimental research in quantum control of spin states in condensed matter. These experiments will involve electron and nuclear magnetic resonance and related quantum control, including pulsed magnetic resonance spectroscopy, possibly with optical excitation and/or electrical detection.

The SQC group is active in the field of Quantum computing with superconducting devices, in particular phase and flux qubits based on SQUIDs, and in fields related to these topics.

The IFN is an institute of the Italian CNR devoted to the study and fabrication of advanced devices for photonics, optoelectronics and electronics. Nanotechnologies play a prominent role in these research fields. The combined expertise in nanofabrication, materials and photonics creates a synergy able to compete in this very new and challenging field.
