The FEMTO-ST Institute (Besançon, France) invites applications of post-doctoral researchers to work within the European Research Council funded project uNIQUE (NanophononIcs for QUantum Information ProcEssing). The project, that started in September 2020, aims at elaborating an information processing platform at the crossing of phononics, nano-electromechanical systems and quantum acoustics. The overarching projet objective is to develop a fully coherent mechanical playground that can be used either as an independent classical or quantum signal processing device or at the interface with either solid-state or photonic qubits.
We are looking for highly-motivated candidates that will be able to conduct activities on any of the topic involved in the project, in particular : modeling, design and fabrication of phononic, MEMS/NEMS, optomechanical devices; low-temperature quantum devices; optical instrumentation; clean-room processing.
A corresponding pre-existing solid background or a strong desire to acquire knowledge in these subjects is essential.
The successful candidates will contribute to one of several of the following tasks:
- Device design, modelling and simulation;
- Device fabrication in a clean room environment;
- Development of optical test beds;
- Development of optical and electro-acoustical low-temperature experiments.
They will also be expected to particpate in the supervision of the scientific activities of the ERC research group and in the supervision of the PhD students involved in the project.
- Candidates must hold a PhD in Physics, Applied Physics, Engineering or closely-related discipline.
- A strong background in general physics (e.g. solid-state physics, optics, acoustics) is required.
- The applicant should show a clear enthusiasm for experimental physics.
- High level of English language proficiency is desirable.
- The candidates are expected to show initiative, teamwork and excellent writing and communication skills in an international environment.
The FEMTO-ST Institute (Franche-Comté Electronique Mécanique Thermique et Optique - Sciences et Technologies ; www.femto-st.fr) is a large scale public research laboratory which is active in various areas of engineering research: mechanics, optics, time & frequency metrology, micro and nano technologies, energy, control and computer sciences. The institute is under the authority of the Université de Bourgogne Franche-Comté (UFC) and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS). Mostly located in Besançon in France, FEMTO-ST is one of the largest French laboratories in the fields of engineering sciences (about 700 members including 230 researchers, 95 engineering and technical staff members and more than 220 PhD students). The Institute hosts high-level technological facilities in the MIMENTO Technology Center, a nation-wide recognized micro-fabrication technology cluster part of the French Basic Technological Research (BTR) network. The successful applicant will join the MOSAIC (Micro-Nanotechnologies for Physical Sciences) group of the Micro Nano-Sciences & Systems department. The group has a well-established expertise in the fields of phononics, microsystems, instrumentation and nanoscience.
