Post-doctoral positions in quantum repeaters with solid-state quantum


ICFO is offering two postdoctoral positions to well-qualified, highly motivated and dynamic young scientists who wish to enhance their scientific career in a friendly and stimulating environment.

The successful candidates will be joining the Quantum Photonics with Solids and Atoms group led by Prof. Dr. Hugues de Riedmatten. The group has experience in quantum technologies for quantum networks, including quantum memories, quantum light sources, quantum frequency conversion and quantum processing nodes. The current positions will be within a project aiming at developing quantum repeaters using solid-state quantum memories and entanglement sources.

The selected candidates will strongly benefit from a multidisciplinary environment with other postdocs and PhD students working in quantum technologies at ICFO and other centers in the Barcelona area, and with strong collaborations with our European academic and industrial partners within the Quantum Internet Alliance in the European Quantum Flagship.

Candidates must hold an internationally-recognized Ph.D.-equivalent degree (or evidence of its completion in the nearest future) preferably in Quantum Physics.

The candidates should have a proven track record of high-impact scientific research in experimental quantum optics. Experience in quantum light sources, quantum light matter interaction, generation and characterization of entanglement and quantum memory will be positively valued. Experience in experimental quantum physics is required.

ICFO is an equal opportunity employer. Candidates are selected exclusively on merit and potential on the basis of submitted application material. No restrictions related to disabilities, citizenship or gender apply to ICFO positions. ICFO abides by the principles of openness, efficiency, transparency, supportiveness, and international comparability as stated in the European Charter for Researchers and the European Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers.
