The position is offered in a multidisciplinary collaboration with partners from science and industry. You will experimentally investigate novel radar paradigms in illumination-type sensing based on propagating quantum microwaves. Your work is embedded into the quantum technology network formed by the WMI, the Excellence Cluster MCQST (https://www.mcqst.de/), the TU München (https://www.tum.de/), the EU Quantum Flagship project QMiCS (https://qmics.wmi.badw.de), and several companies working on quantum technology in the Munich area. The intended contract duration is 3 years.
You embrace a PhD project on the design, fabrication, and characterization of innovative superconducting circuits for microwave photon counting in the context of a quantum illumination experiment. You hold a Master’s degree in physics or a similar field of study with a solid background in Josephson physics, quantum information, quantum communication, or quantum sensing.
