Announcement
Job Announcement Text: 

We are seeking to appoint a Postdoctoral Research Associate for projects focused on leveraging our ability to trap and control large ion crystals in order to facilitate new studies of strongly correlated quantum materials and ultra-sensitive electric field detection for tests of fundamental physics.

The Quantum Control Laboratory is focused on studies of quantum control, metrology, and quantum simulation using trapped ions. The lab is a part of the ARC Centre of Excellence in Engineered Quantum Systems (EQUS). Furthermore, the University is part of the newly founded Sydney Quantum Academy (SQA).  

Responsibilities will include conducting experimental measurements, developing new hardware for system enhancement, exploring new applications of trapped ions, mentoring postgraduate and undergraduate students, and providing day-to-day oversight of laboratory projects and students. 

About you

  • a PhD (or near completion) in Physics or equivalent in a relevant field
  • proven ability to lead projects as part of a small team, and deliver major research outcomes
  • experience in one or more of the following experimental areas: ion trapping, atomic physics, precision metrology using atomic and optical systems, experimental quantum simulation, quantum-enhanced sensing with trapped ions
  • evidence of independent contributions to scientific or technical outcomes.
