Post-Doctoral Research Assistant in Superconducting Parametric Amplifiers (2 posts)
Department of Physics, Denys Wilkinson Building, Keble Road, Oxford
Grade 7: £32,817 to £40,322 per annum
Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Superconducting Parametric Amplifiers.
The post is available initially for a fixed-term duration of 2 years, with the possibility of extension (until end of grant).
This project will focus on developing superconducting parametric amplifiers and other associated superconducting quantum devices for astronomies and quantum computers.
The successful candidate will lead an SPA associated project, design the superconducting devices, setup the experiment using a test cryostat system, conduct experiments to test and analysis the performance of the devices, including guide and assist post-graduate research students, writing progress reports, attending conferences and publish scientific papers. The post-holder will have the opportunity to teach.
Applicants should possess, or be very close to completion of a doctorate in physics or a related field and ideally a strong background in superconducting quantum devices.
Previous experience in the field of superconducting quantum detectors such as SPA, Kinetic Inductance Detectors (KIDs), Superconductor-Insulator-Superconductor (SIS) mixer etc will be an advantage.
Candidates are expected to demonstrate good background knowledge, good communication skills and ability to work independently on research projects, work well in collaboration with researchers and technicians in the group and write scientific papers.
Please direct enquiries about the role to Dr. Boon Kok Tan [email protected]
Only applications received before midday (UK time) 9 August 2021 can be considered. You will be required to upload a statement of research interests, CV. You should arrange for your two referee’s to send reference letters to [email protected] before the closing date.
