A Postdoctoral Research Associate or more senior position is available in the Quantum Coherence Laboratory under the direction of Professor Jason Petta in the Department of Physics at Princeton University. The successful candidate will participate in the research activities of the lab with graduate and undergraduate students as well as other postdoctoral researchers. Electron spins are attractive candidates for quantum bits due to the fact that they can be easily controlled via electrical methods. However, electron spins are difficult to transport over long distances, as would be required for quantum communication or long range coupling. This position is focused on developing hybrid quantum systems that can be used to couple the spin degree of freedom to a propagating electromagnetic field. The candidate will also develop quantum limited parametric amplifiers. Candidates applying for the position must be skilled at electron beam lithography or have experience operating a dilution refrigerator. We seek candidates with strong leadership skills who will help foster a safe and efficient laboratory work environment. Candidates for the position must have a Doctorate degree in Physics or a related discipline. Appointments are for one year with the possibility of renewal subject to performance and continued funding. Interested applicants must submit a cover letter, CV, and contact information for three references to For further information, please contact Professor Jason Petta, . The position is open until filled. This position is subject to the University's background check policy.
