Job description and selection criteria(info)

Two experimental postdoctoral research appointments in quantum control of nanodevices are available for a fixed-term of up to 36 months each from 1 October 2014. Applicants will have research experience in one or more of: nanoscale devices, molecular electronics, quantum electronics, cryogenic measurements, electron paramagnetic resonance. The posts are part of a multidisciplinary international project “Experimental Tests of Quantum Reality” led by Professor Andrew Briggs.

The project will investigate the nature of quantum reality by testing specific predictions of quantum theory using nanoelectronic devices. The planned experiments will investigate quantum interference in molecular nanodevices and related tests of quantum phenomena. The posts are funded by Templeton World Charity Foundation, together with Oxford Martin School and EPSRC. They offer an excellent opportunity to make progress towards emerging quantum technologies through pursuing the deeper foundational questions.

By the start date applicants must have completed a doctorate in a relevant physical science and have an outstanding track record of research and publications, commensurate with the stage in career. Willingness and ability to engage with others in deeper theoretical and philosophical questions are essential for these posts.

The closing date for applications is 12.00 midday on Thursday 31 July 2014 with interviews currently planned for early September 2014.
