PhD position in Quantum computing with ultracold strontium

PhD position in Quantum computing with ultracold strontium


We are looking for talented and motivated PhD students to join our strontium experiment. Our team investigates quantum information and quantum networks with ultracold strontium atoms.

 

The general idea of our project is to use technology from the most precise systems on Earth, namely atomic clocks, to realize a quantum computing platform. This allows us to achieve a quantum computer with atomic clock precision.

 

We start by cooling strontium atoms to temperatures near absolute zero. Individual strontium atoms function as qubits, and we use them to study how quantum information is stored, transmitted, processed, and read out. Aside from quantum information applications, our project is also interested in fundamental questions about entanglement, light-matter interactions, quantum measurement, and more.

 

If you are interested in applying for this position and want to know more about our work, please see our group webpage (at https://nicholsonlabs.org). Applications can be emailed to nicholson@nus.edu.sg. All applications must contain a full CV and soft copies of academic transcripts. CVs must contain the names and contact information of those who will write your recommendation letters.
