Job Description

We have openings for talented scientists who are ready to take up a leadership role in our group and to spearhead new initiatives and provide supervision and guidance to junior members of the team.

You will be part of a well-funded initiative to create quantum networks of superconducting circuits mediated by telecom photons. Your job could include the following subjects:

  • Leading the design and fabrication of superconducting qubits that resist to moderate magnetic fields
  • Spearheading the development and fabrication of chips that combine superconducting circuits and integrated photonics
  • Exploring novel fabrication methods to couple rare-earth ions in solid-state with integrated optics and superconducting circuits
  • Measuring quantum correlations between microwave photons at cryogenic temperature and telecom photons at room temperature

You will also work closely with the Principal Investigator to develop future experimental goals and shape the general research direction of the group. There will also be ample opportunity to explore your own ideas and participate in grant-writing processes. We aim to provide you a challenging and supportive environment to perfect your research leadership skills and get ready for your next career step!


Qove Laboratory is led by Assistant Professor Steven Touzard and located at the National University of Singapore. The lab is funded by the prestigious NRF Fellowship. Our group works on a large range of quantum technologies, with currently an emphasis on remotely entangling superconducting qubits with telecom photons to form long-range quantum networks.

Postdoc applicants should have proven research experience and have a strong interest in quantum technologies. Furthermore, a PhD in Experimental Physics or Engineering is required, as well as knowledge on micro and Nano-fabrication, microwave engineering and electronics, as well as cryogenic equipment. Ideally you received your PhD working on superconducting circuits, spin defects in solid-state, integrated optics or quantum optics experiments. 

At NUS, the health and safety of our staff and students is 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 significant amount of physical interactions with student / staff / public members. Even for job roles that can be performed remotely, there will be instances where on-campus presence is required. 

With effect from 15 January 2022, based on Singapore’s legal requirements, unvaccinated workers will not be able work at the NUS premises. As such, we regret to inform that job applicants need to be fully COVID-19 vaccinated for successful employment with NUS.[1]
