Higher Research Scientist - Ion Microtraps
You'll plan and deliver a number of technical activities to take our research to the next level. As we're pushing boundaries all the time, we'll expect you to acquire new knowledge to find solutions to advance our research. It's your responsibility to share your learnings so that we all benefit, mentoring those with less experience than you. Equally, if commercial opportunities arise from your work, you'll need to flag these - as this is how new products and services are born. The same can be said for developing partnerships to strengthen our capability. You'll also act as an ambassador for our work externally and be willing to promote what we do. And, as an expert in your field, we'll also seek your technical support for any bids we may be undertaking.
Quantum technology is a rapidly developing subject, with applications based on atomic systems ranging from quantum simulators and processors, to atomic clocks and sensors. Central to technological advances with laser-cooled ions is the development of scalable, microfabricated devices for confining atomic systems. Using advanced microfabrication techniques, we've developed novel chip-scale ion traps; new-generation devices with superior functionality are under test and being applied to quantum technologies.
One vacancy exists to work on this research and development project. The vacancy is focused on employing the microtrap devices to create high-fidelity entangled states of trapped ions; subsequently these systems will be applied to precision quantum metrology. Further applications are in quantum processors.
Aspects of the roles include: experimental design, construction and investigation; data recording, analysis and interpretation; working with academic and industrial collaborators; and presentation of results at project meetings and conferences.
PhD (or a similar level of experience) in experimental physics or related engineering research
Excellent problem-solver, with record of achievement in a R&D environment.
Knowledge and understanding of atomic quantum technologies and related chip-scale devices.
Experimental experience in laser-cooled atomic systems, and the range of photonic components used for their control.
Track record of conference presentations and peer-reviewed publications.
Skilled in developing software for instrumentation control and data analysis.
