Ph.D Positions in experimental superconducting circuits in Singapore

The quantum circuits research and engineering workgroup (qcrew) is a new research team in the Centre for Quantum Technologies ( in Singapore. We focus on building interesting and impactful quantum devices using superconducting microwave circuits information processing. The team is led by assistant professor Yvonne Gao. Yvonne earned her Ph.D from Yale in the Schoelkopf group in 2018 and has been awarded the prestigious National Research Foundation Fellowship in 2019 to start her own team in Singapore. To learn more about Yvonne and the qcrew, please visit


We are seeking motivated students with excellent problem-solving skills and a passion for experimental quantum physics. You will be working closely with the senior members of the lab to design, build, and characterise quantum devices. You’ll also be given the opportunities to develop your own ideas and make impact discoveries! As part of the vibrant and diverse quantum community in CQT, we work towards fostering a supportive and exciting environment for our students to grow as a scientist and learn about different aspects of physics.



  • Strong undergraduate performance in experimental physics/engineering

  • Have taken at least 2 courses of quantum mechanics in undergraduate study

  • Good problem-solving skills and hands-on skills


We are currently open for Ph.D applications for candidacy starting in 2021. Interested students please contact Yvonne directly at
