Visiting Research Professor (Energetics of Quantum Technologies), Centre for Quantum Technologies
- Full Time
About the Centre for Quantum Technologies
The Centre for Quantum Technologies (CQT) is a research centre of excellence in Singapore. It brings together physicists, computer scientists and engineers to do basic research on quantum physics and to build devices based on quantum phenomena. Experts in this new discipline of quantum technologies are applying their discoveries in computing, communications, and sensing.
CQT is hosted by the National University of Singapore and also has staff at Nanyang Technological University. With some 180 researchers and students, it offers a friendly and international work environment.

Energetics of Quantum Technologies
With the rise of quantum technologies, the question of their resource consumption is becoming accurate. Oddly enough, the energetic footprint of quantum technologies has remained in a blindspot of national and international quantum strategies and roadmaps. The purpose of this research position is to build a framework to monitor, optimize and mitigate the energy consumption of two pillars of quantum techs: (i) quantum computing and simulation, and (ii) quantum measurement and sensing. These two tightly connected research lines will lead to the definition of new energy-based metrics of performance, and optimize their behavior as a function of the experimental platform, type of code and architecture, and non-classical resources used to compute/measure - providing a new and essential way to benchmark different technological options.
- PhD degree in a relevant field, with at least 10 years of experience in Physics research
- A strong connexion to experimental teams is mandatory
- A strong background in quantum thermodynamics, quantum optics, quantum optomechanics
At NUS, the health and safety of our staff and students are one of our utmost priorities, and COVID-vaccination supports our commitment to ensure the safety of our community and to make NUS as safe and welcoming as possible. Many of our roles require a significant amount of physical interactions with students/staff/public members. Even for job roles that may be performed remotely, there will be instances where on-campus presence is required.
Taking into consideration the health and well-being of our staff and students and to better protect everyone in the campus, applicants are strongly encouraged to have themselves fully COVID-19 vaccinated to secure successful employment with NUS.
