PDRA in Semiconductor Quantum Optics
IEB Building, Parks Road, Oxford
We are seeking a full-time Postdoctoral Research Assistant to join the
Quantum Engineering research group at the Department of Engineering Science
(central Oxford). The post is funded by the EPSRC and is fixed-term to
December 31, 2025.
This project aims to perform a deterministic quantum logic gate between two
photonic quantum bits using an electronic spin confined in an optically active
quantum dot. You will be responsible for combining nanofabrication of micro-
optical and semiconductor devices, low-temperature optical spectroscopy,
quantum optics protocols, and spin control approaches to the design of a high-
efficiency, high-fidelity quantum device that will perform such a quantum
You should possess a PhD/DPhil (or be closed to completion) in a discipline
cognate to the project, and you should have extensive experience with
experimental quantum optics with either atoms or solid-state emitters.
Informal enquiries may be addressed to Prof Dorian Gangloff (email:
