The Centre for Quantum Photonics (CQP) and the newly established Quantum Engineering Technology Labs (QET Labs) within the University of Bristol are seeking to appoint exceptional individuals for three newly formed lectureship posts. CQP and the wider QET Labs is a global centre for research, development and entrepreneurship in the emerging quantum technology industry. With world-leading facilities, core expertise in photonic quantum technologies and quantum systems engineering and with over 100 researchers working on cutting-edge research, QET Labs is an international node for collaboration with industrial and academic world leaders, including the EPSRC UK Quantum Technology Hub Network.


The first post is for a Lecturer in Quantum Photonics within the School of Physics with a particular focus on one or more of the following key areas of quantum information processing with photons;

1.       quantum communication

2.       quantum computation

3.       quantum simulation

4.       quantum tomography

The second post is for a Lecturer in Photonic Quantum Engineering within the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. The successful candidate must have a strong background in one of the following areas;

1.         integrated quantum technology platforms

2.         photonic technologies for communication and computation

3.         devices and components

The final post is for a Lectureship in Quantum Engineering within the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Quantum Engineering. The successful candidate will support the delivery of the CDT and conduct research that is related to the field of Quantum Engineering and to the Centre for Quantum Photonics. They will join the CDT management team responsible for delivering the CDT training programme and ensuring a high quality postgraduate student experience and will play a key leadership role within the centre an involved in the training and teaching programme for each cohort.

Candidates for all three posts should hold a PhD and have an excellent record of accomplishments in quantum science and technology and a growing international research profile, as evidenced by the quality of publications. A commitment to teaching and the ability to lead a research group are required. Experience of teaching, supervising PhD students, and securing grant funding is also desirable. The successful candidates are expected to develop a strong and visible research program in the area of Quantum Science and Technology. We are looking for the applicants to establish an independent research programme, focussed on the invention of practical applications for photonic quantum technologies.
