Quantum Technologies Postdoctoral Fellow: Coherent Control Methods and Mesoscopic Physics in Magnetic Resonance
Quantum Valley Ideas Laboratories (QVIL) is a not-for-profit applied research institution focused on cutting-edge research and development of quantum technologies. Quantum Valley Ideas Laboratories is tackling the ambitious goal of accelerating quantum technologies from proof-of-concept to real-world applicable, commercialized solutions. We are searching for an applied physicist to fill a postdoctoral fellow position.
QVIL in collaboration with The Transformative Quantum Technologies program (tqt.uwaterloo.ca) at the University of Waterloo, in Canada, has two open postdoctoral positions. The goal of the projects are to develop mesoscopic spin systems as useful coherent control elements for electron and nuclear magnetic resonance. The experimental systems include coherent control for ensembles of diamond NV centers, optical polarization of P defects in single crystal Si, and spin/cavity interactions beyond radiation damping.
The positions involve a mixture of theory and experiment. For the Si and spin/cavity work, some experience with low temperature physics is helpful, but not essential. Experience with NMR is also not essential, in particular, candidates with applied math backgrounds and knowledge of quantum information theory are very welcome.
We are interested in hiring a candidate who wants to work on a scientific team and has a passion for application-driven R&D. Candidates must have a doctoral degree in electrical engineering, optics, physics or a closely related field, and an outstanding record of original published research. The successful applicant will work under a project lead with other staff scientists and engineers. A desire to successfully work in a close team environment is required. We value inquisitiveness and creative problem solving above all.
Applicants should provide a full CV (including publications) and a cover letter explaining their interest in the position as well as arrange to have three recommendation letters. Applications will be considered until the position is closed on a running basis.
Quantum Valley Ideas Laboratories is located in the Kitchener-Waterloo area of Canada, in the heart of Canada’s ‘Silicon Valley’, near Toronto. The area has excellent schools, a vibrant community atmosphere, and outstanding local Universities. Quantum Valley Ideas Laboratories offers a competitive compensation and benefits package as well as an exciting, challenging and supportive work atmosphere.
