Postdoctoral researcher (m/f/x) for the experimental realization of quantum radar


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 (, the TU München (, the EU Quantum Flagship project QMiCS (, and several companies working on quantum technology in the Munich area. The intended contract duration is 3 years.
You are eager to lead an ambitious experiment based on continuous-variable quantum microwaves generated by superconducting circuits and qubit-based microwave photon detectors. 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.
