A postdoctoral position is available immediately for up to 36 months, to undertake experimental research in quantum control in molecular devices. Applicants will have research experience in cryogenic measurements, and possibly also nanoscale device fabrication and characterisation or pulsed magnetic resonance of electron and nuclear spins. The post is part of a multidisciplinary programme Molecular Quantum Devices led by Professor Andrew Briggs.

The post is funded by EPSRC. The research is in collaboration with Physics and Chemistry. It offers an excellent opportunity to develop practical technologies based on controlling quantum states, and specifically for using molecular spins in electronic devices. The key challenge is to transfer quantum information between molecular spin states and electron spins in double dot devices, and measure the results.

By the start date applicants must have completed a doctorate (or at least have submitted their thesis) in a relevant physical science. We shall be looking for an outstanding track record of research and publications, commensurate with the stage in career. Please see the job description for full details and selection criteria.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 midday on 19 July 2013 with interviews currently planned for 5/6 August 2013.
