Job Description

The successful candidate will work as part of a collaborative programme between the Centre for Quantum Technologies and Oxford University to develop quantum dot-based quantum light sources for distributed photonic networks for future quantum information processing.

Significant experience of quantum optics or spectroscopy of devices, materials, or nanomaterials is essential and should be accompanied with a demonstrable track record of assembling and operating optical set-ups, lasers, APDs, time-resolved spectroscopy, helium flow cryostats, and control software (e.g. Labview). Knowledge of exciton dynamics and material synthesis is an advantage because the appointee will be expected to contribute to sample fabrication. The appointment is for an initial period of one year, renewable subject to performance.

Job Requirements

  • Applicants should possess or be close to obtaining a PhD in physics or materials science.
  • Highly experienced in the optoelectronic characterisation of devices, materials, and nanomaterials.
  • Experience with optical spectroscopy.
  • Experience with laboratory experimental automation software, particularly LabVIEW.
  • Good track record of high-quality publications.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills in English.
  • Applicants should be highly motivated and have excellent skills in working collaboratively as part of a team.
  • The ability to direct your own research and interpret your results independently.
  • Applicants are expected to openly share information pertaining to their research with other group members and contribute to scientific discussions concerning their and other group members’ work.
  • Experience with time-resolved spectroscopy of materials.
  • Experience with handling cryogens and work at low temperatures.
  • Experience with experiments and/or analysis related to single photon counting
  • Experience working with wet-bench chemistry for material synthesis
