Positions

Postdoctoral Associate
The Quantum Nanostructures group at the University of Rochester, led by John Nichol, is seeking applications for a postdoctoral research associate. We are looking for a creative, self-motivated researcher who has the ability and interest to pursue exciting and challenging problems at the boundaries of quantum information processing and many-body quantum physics.  Successful candidates should

  • Have completed a PhD in physics.
  • Have experience with cryogenics, including dilution refrigerator.
  • Have experience with microfabrication and nanofabrication, including electron beam lithography.
  • Possess good oral and written communication skills.

To apply, applicants should submit their CV, a brief statement of research interests, and arrange to have three letters of recommendation sent to John Nichol (jnich10@ur.rochester.edu). Review of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.

Graduate students
