Quantum technologies harness the features of quantum mechanics to perform tasks that are hard or impossible with conventional technologies. Our consortium, led by UCL, is bidding for a £35M EPSRC UK Quantum Technology Hub in Electronic Quantum Technologies (EQT), to be a multi-disciplinary research and development effort involving scientists and engineers, and both theoretical and experimental work. The Hub will translate basic work on solid-state quantum devices to applications in computing and simulation, as well as spin-off devices such as nano-imaging tools and current standards based on the same core solid-state electronic technologies. This is an exciting opportunity to be embedded within a major national initiative in quantum technologies, collaborating with researchers across a range of disciplines within the EQT Hub, as well as those across the wider Hub network.
Offers of employment will be conditional, subject to the award of the EPSRC UK Quantum Technology Hub in Electronic Quantum Technologies grant to the EQT Consortium.
The posts will be full time and funded through the EQT Hub from 1 October 2014 for periods ranging from 2 to 5 years in the first instance. An application form, further particulars, job description and person specification can be obtained from the individual institutional job adverts, linked in the Job ID’s below.
Closing Date: 6 August 2014
