Experimental realization of microwave quantum token with quantum memory based on spin ensembles


The project is funded by Federal Ministry of Science and Education (BMBF) within the “Grand challenge of quantum communication” call (project QuaMToMe) and aims for the demonstration of the generation and storage of microwave quantum tokens in spin ensemble quantum memories.
The positions are situated in a multidisciplinary collaboration between the partners within the WMI institute. Specifically, we offer three deeply interconnected PhD topics:
1. Quantum memories based on rare earth spin ensembles
2. Generation of quantum tokens (quantum cryptographic units) using squeezed microwaves
3. Quantum memories based on spin donors in silicon
Your work is embedded into the quantum technology efforts formed by the WMI, the Excellence Cluster MCQST ( and the Technische Universität München ( The planned starting date of the project is November 1st, 2021, with the anticipated duration of 3 years. Salary is within the 75% TV-L E13 pay grade.
You hold a Master’s degree in physics or a similar field of study with a solid background in solid state and Josephson physics, quantum information, quantum communication, or quantum sensing.

How to apply

Application documents should include your CV, relevant transcripts, and grade reports (master and bachelor, or diploma), and a brief cover letter explaining your motivation. Please send the documents as a single PDF file to Martina Meven (, please mention the code “2021-QuaMToMe-01” in the subject). The applications are accepted until 31.10.2021.
