Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Ultra-low Temperature Physics
Clarendon Laboratory, Parks Road, Oxford
Grade 7: £33,309 -£40,927 per annum
Applications are invited for two Postdoctoral Research Assistant posts in
Ultra-low Temperature Physics at the Department of Physics, University of
Both posts are available for 2 years, with a possibility of extension to 3
This project will develop an ultra-low-vibration microkelvin refrigerator for
use with ultra-high-Q mechanical oscillators.
The ideal PDRA candidate will have a combination of specialized knowledge,
skills and successful experience in the following research areas:
• Microkelvin Refrigeration
• 3He/4He Dilution Refrigeration
• High-field Superconducting Magnets
• Microkelvin Instrument Design and Fabrication
• Ultra-low Vibration Techniques
• Superconducting Quantum Inference Devices
• Ultra-high-Q Mechanical (Torsional) Oscillators
• Quantum State Sensing & Qubits
• High-frequency Data Acquisition and Control Electronics
• Data Management, Analysis
Applicants should hold a PhD in experimental ultra-low temperature physics.
Demonstrated skills should include capability to design, fabricate and procure
components, assemble, integrate, test and operate ultra-low temperature
They must have the ability to lead ultra-low temperature research, generating
consequential and fundamental scientific discoveries, whilst managing and
coordinating academic research and administrative activities of themselves and
the ultra-low temperature physics research team.
The successful candidates will be able to adapt and develop; new and existing
scientific techniques plus experimental protocols to the research objectives
of the project. They must also be able to test hypotheses and analyse
scientific data from ultra-low temperature research instruments.
