Job Description

The open position is funded by Singapore's ambitious Quantum Engineering Programme and is affiliated with Yvonne Gao's lab (QCrew) and Steven Touzard's lab (Qove Laboratory). Both PIs hold the Presidential Young Professorship and their laboratories are funded under the National Research Fellowship, which offers long-term funding prospects.

We have an opening for a post-doctoral research fellow specialising in the design and fabrication of superconducting devices. The applicant will lead the development of new broadband Josephson parametric amplifiers and of its application to quantum measurements. The successful candidate will also work closely with the PI to develop future experimental goals and shape the general research direction of the group. There will be ample opportunities to explore personal ideas and participate in grant-writing processes. We aim to provide a challenging and supportive environment to nurture research leadership skills and readiness for a high-level career in academia or in the quantum industry.
