Post-doctoral position

Quantum Science and Technology

Ref. 2021_046

Project description

The combination of superconductors and semiconductors is attracting considerable interest for fundamental studies of topological phenomena in condensed matter, as well as for quantum computing applications. With the theoretical and experimental developments achieved in recent years, turning hybrid devices into useful technologies is within reach. We are therefore offering a postdoc position aimed at combining and integrating hybrid devices hosting Andreev bound states or Majorana modes with modern quantum electrodynamics architectures. Moving from DC measurements to microwave techniques will open new avenues in this field of research, including the possibility to investigate the fast dynamics of these quantum systems and to coherently control them.

Research will be conducted in a collaborative and creative team, embedded in a lively and international research environment. The nanofabrication work will exploit the capabilities of the fully equipped state-of-the-art cleanroom in the Binnig and Rohrer Nanotechnology Center .


Applicants are expected to hold a PhD degree in physics, electronic engineering, or in a similar field. Previous expertise with RF techniques, superconducting resonators or qubit characterization is greatly appreciated.


IBM is committed to diversity at the workplace. With us you will find an open, multicultural environment. Excellent flexible working arrangements enable all genders to strike the desired balance between their professional development and their personal lives.
