We seek motivated postdoctoral researchers to be part of the experimental effort in the
newly formed Engineered Quantum System Laboratory (EQSL) at the Institute for
Quantum Computing. The research work will be broadly in the field of
superconducting quantum circuits, with some freedom for the postdocs to define their
own projects within the work of the lab. We have a number of ongoing and new projects
focusing on microwave quantum optics and quantum thermodynamics. In all of the
projects, we seek to advance the state of the art in quantum technologies while also
more deeply understanding the fundamental physics that enables these technologies.
EQSL has dedicated equipment for the experiments, include cryogen free-dilution
refrigerators and microwave electronics. We have access to all nanofabrication tools
necessary through the newly opened Quantum NanoFab, which is part of the 285,000
square foot Quantum-Nano Center, newly constructed to hold IQC and the Waterloo
Institute of Nanotechnology.
IQC, located at the University of Waterloo outside of Toronto, provides a vibrant
research environment with interdisciplinary researchers coming from physics,
engineering, chemistry, math and computer science. The Institute is dedicated to the
advancement and development of quantum information science and quantum
technology. The environment is also enhanced by our close association with our sister
institution, the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics.
Positions are available to start immediately, but the actually starting time is negotiable.
The positions will be 1 + 1 years.
The successful applicant should have (or be nearing completion of) a PhD in a field of
physics or closely related discipline. Candidates should have experience in at least
some of the following areas: superconductivity, mesoscopic physics, quantum optics,
nanofabrication, cryogenics, microwave technology. A high level of proficiency in
written and spoken English is also a requirement.
Interested candidates should send their CV to Prof. Christopher Wilson at
