job description

Quantum technology is considered one of the most disruptive technologies of our time. In order to realize a scalable quantum system, the teamwork of a large number of scientists and engineers is required. If you are one of those who are passionate about pushing the boundaries of quantum technologies, we are looking for you.

In particular, we are looking for a post-doctoral student with great interest in the development of hybrid quantum systems. The person will be part of a larger research team working on developing a quantum network in Singapore using different quantum systems, including atoms and solid-state devices. Ions in an ion trap make excellent stationary quantum storage as well as a computational qubit, photons are known to be the best communication qubits, and quantum dots are most commonly used for sensing. This project aims to couple these diverse quantum systems over a large distance and thus open up the possibility of developing a functioning quantum network.

job requirements

  • A PhD in Experimental Atomic, Molecular and Optical Sciences. Sound knowledge of single photon sources and their characterization. Basic knowledge of electronics. Working knowledge of optics Working knowledge of writing and understanding Python code. Experience in design and simulation of ion trapping optics

The team is a diverse team of researchers collaborating with a range of collaborators both inside and outside Singapore. The team specializes in processing and capturing quantum information in ion traps. This position offers the opportunity to work on more than one quantum system in collaboration with Singapore.

COVID vaccination message

At NUS, the health and safety of our staff and students is one of our top priorities, and the COVID vaccination supports our commitment to keeping our community safe and making NUS as safe and welcoming as possible. Many of our roles require a significant amount of physical interaction with students/staff/public members. Even for job roles that can be performed remotely, there will be instances where on-campus presence is required.

As of January 15, 2022, based on Singapore law, unvaccinated workers will no longer be allowed to work on NIS grounds. Therefore, we regret to announce that applicants must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 for successful employment at NUS.
