Job Announcement Text: 
  • Full time 12 months fixed term located on the Camperdown Campus at the School of Physics
  • Research focused on quantum simulation & sensing using trapped ions in the Sydney Nanoscience Hub
  • Salary Level A $97,043 p.a. - $100,717 p.a. + 17% super

We are seeking a Postdoctoral Research Associate for projects focused on quantum simulation & sensing using large crystals of trapped ions.The Quantum Control Laboratory is focused on studies of quantum control, metrology, & quantum simulation using trapped ions. This project focuses on leveraging our ability to trap & control large ion crystals in order to facilitate new studies of strongly correlated quantum materials & ultra-sensitive electric field detection for tests of fundamental physics. Candidates will have the opportunity to contribute broadly to the group and:

  • study of exotic phenomena in quantum magnetism & quantum many-body physics
  • develop new modes of operation and measurement in order to employ quantum technology for tests of fundamental physics
  • explore new techniques in the control & measurement of strongly interacting multidimensional quantum systems, leveraging insights from the fields of quantum physics & atomic physics
  • build & test novel laser systems to expand the functionality of 2D & 3D trapped-ion systems, including the development of novel approaches to laser cooling & the engineering of multibody interactions.
