The superconducting circuits group at Néel Institute in Grenoble offers a postdoctoral position. Over the recent years, our team has specialized in large kinetic inductance superconducting quantum circuits working at milliKelvin temperatures with applications ranging from novel superconducting qubits to state-of-the-art quantum limited amplifiers.
Your main task will be to build much-anticipated devices such as broadband single photon detectors or quantum limited amplifiers, leveraging our Traveling Wave Parametric Amplifiers (TWPA) expertise.
Our team specializes in the coherent control and manipulation of superconducting quantum circuits. You will benefit from a dedicated, state-of-the-art setup combining very low temperatures (around 10 mK), fast electronics and quantum-limited microwave detection chains. The devices are fabricated in the clean room of the Neel Institute (Nanofab), offering state-of-the-art equipment (100 keV e-beam writer, dedicated Plassys evaporator, ALD and PE-CVD machines…).
PhD degree with a solid background in quantum physics. A strong experience in at least one of the following areas is required: nano-fabrication, microwave and digital electronics, advanced cryogenic equipment (dilution refrigerators), theory of quantum circuits.
The Institut NEEL, UPR 2940 CNRS, is one of the largest French national research institutes for fundamental research in condensed matter physics enriched by interdisciplinary activities at the interfaces with chemistry, engineering and biology. It is located in the heart of a unique scientific, industrial and cultural environment. It is part of one of Europe's biggest high-tech environment in micro- and nanoelectronics, right next to the French Alpes.
In the Institut Néel, the QuantECA team is specialized in the experimental study of quantum electronic devices, from fundamental studies to applications of quantum technologies.
The Institut NEEL is a CNRS laboratory. CNRS is a public, scientific and technological organisation.
The core mandate is to identify, carry out ou have carried out, either alone or with partners, all research that advances science or contributes to the country's economic, social, and cultural progress. Internationally recognised for the excellence of its scientific research, the CNRS is a reference in the world of research and development, as well as for the general public.
