Postdoc Position on Photonic Quantum Technologies with Controlled Site-con

Tyndall National Institute

Cork, Ireland

The Epitaxy and Physics of Nanostructures (EPN) group, Tyndall National Institution and University College Cork fund a Postdoc position on “Photonic quantum technologies with controlled site-controlled quantum dots“.

The Epitaxy and Physics of Nanostructures group is a well-established research team in Ireland addressing quantum technology applications of III-V site-controlled quantum dots (see e.g. Gediminas Juska, et al. “Towards quantum dot based arrays of entangled photon emitters”, Nature Photonics 7, 527 (2013); T. H. Chung, et al. “Selective carrier injection into patterned arrays of pyramidal quantum dots for entangled photon light-emitting diodes”, Nature Photonics 10, 782 (2016)).

Key Responsibilities

  • The focus of this position will be to develop innovative resonant pumping techniques, matched to external tuning knobs, allowing obtaining nearly perfect sources of quantum light from Pyramidal quantum dots.
  • Moreover, strategies for coherent control and the exploration of discordant quantum states will be actively explored.
  • The successful candidate is also expected to engage in PhD mentoring and supervision, and also follow Tyndall outreach engagement policies.

Other responsibilities:

  • Participate in Education and Public Engagement activities, as required.
  • Ensure all activities are compliant with the Tyndall Quality Management system.
  • Ensure all activities are compliant with the required Health and Safety standards.
  • Carry out any additional duties as may reasonably be required within the general scope and level of the post.

Essential Criteria

  • Postdoctoral applicants must hold a PhD in Physics or a related discipline before the start of the contract.
  • They should have a rich CV and experience in quantum technologies, or at least in a field close to the topics (QDs, Entangled photon emission, coherent pumping etc.) to be investigated.

Desirable Criteria

  • Highly self-motivated applicants with strong experimental attitude.
  • Preference will be given to candidates with strong background in at least one of the following areas: QDs as sources of quantum light, cryogenic quantum optics, quantum photonic circuits, experimental quantum computation.
