Postdoc opening in Quantum hacking lab at IQC, Waterloo, Canada

A postdoctoral position is open in laboratory of Vadim Makarov . The laboratory's main focus is practical
security of all types of QKD systems, discovering implementation
vulnerabilities and testing experimental attacks and countermeasures.
Additional focus is low-noise photon detectors for long-distance and
satellite QKD.

A candidate must have several journal publications in experimental QKD or
closely related field. Experience in electronics design will be an
advantage. Candidates with different background may be considered in
exceptional cases.

The position is open until filled. Interested candidates should email
brief CV and list of publications to makarov [at] vad1 [dot] com

Duration of employment and salary are negotiable. A typical postdoc
appointment is for one to two years.

Makarov's laboratory is situated at the Institute for Quantum Computing , which is a part of rich "quantum valley" research
environment in Waterloo. Our laboratory has several international
collaborations with academia and industry. We also interact with other
groups at our institute working in experiment and theory of quantum
communications, among them groups of T. Jennewein, N. Lutkenhaus,
M. Mosca. The institute runs a fantastic visitor program (invited seminar
talks almost every week) and comprehensive graduate course program in
quantum information. It is a part of wider environment that includes
University of Waterloo's other departments and Perimeter Institute for
Theoretical Physics.
