Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Superconducting Parametric Amplifiers

Department of Physics, Keble Road, Oxford

Grade 7: £32,236 - £39,609 p.a.

Applications are invited for a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in Superconducting Parametric Amplifiers. The post is available initially for a fixed-term duration of 2 years, with the possibility of extension.


This project will focus on developing superconducting parametric amplifiers for astronomies and quantum computers. The successful candidate will lead the project, design the amplifier chips, setup the experiment using a test cryostat system, conduct experiments to test and analysis the performance of the SPAs, including guide and assist post-graduate research students, writing progress reports, attending conferences and publish scientific papers. The postholder will have the opportunity to teach.


Applicants should possess, or be close to completion of a PhD/DPhil in physics or a related field and ideally a strong background in superconducting quantum devices. Previous experience in the field of superconducting quantum detectors such as Kinetic Inductance Detectors (KIDs) or SPA will be an advantage. Candidates are expected to demonstrate good background knowledge, good communication skills and ability to work independently on research projects, work well in collaboration with researchers and technicians in the group and write scientific papers.
