The Department of Applied Physics is looking for a highly motivated postdoc to work on a project on superconducting quantum circuits, and on developing a many qubit processor for quantum computing and simulations. Daily tasks include working with a dilution refrigerator and other cryogenic tools, nanofabrication in the state-of-the-art clean room facilities of OtaNano, theoretical and numerical analysis, and measurement automation. Previous experience in some of these topics is beneficial, but strong candidates from other fields of physics are encouraged to apply as well.

This position is part of the Quantum Computer project that develops a scalable quantum computer in Finland. It is funded by the Technology Industries of Finland Centennial Foundation and Jane and Aatos Erkko Foundation and steered by a working group of ten group leaders including the following ERC grant recipients: Doc. Mikko Möttönen (QCD group), Prof. Jukka Pekola (PICO group), and Prof. Pertti Hakonen (Nano group). The recruited candidate will also be heavily involved with in the Finnish Centre of Excellence in Quantum Technology (QTF) that is an outstanding working environment with over 100 researchers investigating superconducting and silicon-based quantum devices, and nanostructures.
