Postdoctoral researcher in experimental quantum microwave communication & sensing


The position is offered as part of the EU Quantum Flagship project QMiCS ( In a joint effort between 8 European partners from science and industry, you will experimentally investigate quantum microwaves for applications in communication, distributed quantum computing, and sensing. Your work is embedded into the quantum technology network formed by the WMI, the Excellence Cluster MCQST (, and the TU München ( The intended contract duration is 1 year.
You are eager to lead ambitious experiments based on continuous-variable quantum microwaves generated by superconducting Josephson parametric amplifiers. You hold a PhD degree in physics or a similar field of study with a solid background in quantum information, quantum communication, or quantum sensing. Proven expertise in the fabrication and/or control of superconducting quantum circuits at microwave frequencies and cryogenic temperatures is considered as an advantage.
