Positions Available

The Centre for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology is home to the world’s largest team working to develop a scalable spin-based quantum computing architecture in silicon. Headquartered at UNSW Sydney, the Centre is renowned for pioneering research in atomic manipulation, atomic electronics and high frequency cryogenic control of qubits in silicon. The Centre is expanding and offering research fellowship positions and PhD scholarships.

ANNOUNCEMENT: FORTHCOMING ROLES in mid-2017

In mid-2017 UNSW Sydney will be recruiting a significant number of new postdoctoral researchers to develop an integrated quantum circuit in silicon. Email k.oconnell [at] cqc2t.org to be notified of these positions when applications open.

CURRENT ROLES

RESEARCH FELLOW/SENIOR RESEARCH FELLOW: Silicon Quantum Computation 56892
Institution: University of New South Wales      Location: Sydney
Salary level: approx. AUD 98,000–137,000 per annum (plus 17% employer superannuation and leave loading)

This prestigious research position will provide an ambitious experimental scientist with a globally unique opportunity to design, characterise and measure multi-qubit devices relevant to the development of a silicon-based quantum computer. The research will investigate the controlled coupling of multi-qubit devices, and the coherent transport of quantum information. Experiments will involve the configuration and operation of high-frequency electronics compatible with cryogenic measurements. Applications should include a cover letter, CV and academic transcript, and be sent to the Centre Director at michelle dot simmons at unsw.edu.au. Applications close when the position is filled.

RESEARCH FELLOW/SENIOR RESEARCH FELLOW: Atomic Electronics 56894
Institution: University of New South Wales      Location: Sydney
Salary level: approx. AUD 98,000–137,000 per annum (plus 17% employer superannuation and leave loading)

Applications are sought from technically talented candidates with an ambition to create atomic-scale devices in silicon or germanium via high resolution STM-lithography and advanced semiconductor clean-room processing. Candidates should be ready to join a focused team to design, pattern and fabricate 3D devices where the active component is a single atom. Applications should include a cover letter, CV and academic transcript, and be sent to the Centre Director at michelle dot simmons at unsw.edu.au. Applications close when the position is filled.

2 x PHD SCHOLARSHIPS: Silicon Quantum Computation and Atomic Electronics
Institution: University of New South Wales      Location: Sydney
Salary level: AUD 26,000 per annum plus a supplement of up to $6,000 per annum for first class degrees or equivalent

We seek outstanding and enthusiastic PhD candidates to work in multi-qubit silicon-based quantum computation with ESR control and to develop and electrically characterise a novel quantum integrated circuit chip based on atomically precise three dimensional architectures. Candidates will learn the latest techniques in our internationally unique atomic manipulation program in how to make and measure devices with atomic-scale precision using low noise, high frequency electrical measurements at cryogenic temperatures. Applications should include a cover letter, CV and academic transcript, and be sent to the Centre Director at michelle dot simmons at unsw.edu.au. Applications close when the position is filled.
