Postdoc positions available in quantum logic with trapped ions!

In the Quantum Optics & Spectroscopy Group (, in Innsbruck Austria, postdoc positions are available. Details about the project and the available positions are given below.

Interested applicants should send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., with a curriculum vitae and a concise motivation for  joining our group. Please also provide the names and contact details of three people who would be willing to provide scientific references for you.

We expect strong motivation and commitment to research. Postdoc applicants should have proven research experience in experimental AMO physics or experimental quantum information science and have completed a PhD before starting a position with us.


Scalable quantum logic

This project is centered around the realization of beneficial quantum error-correction and medium-scale algorithms in an ion-trap quantum information processor. We want to engineer a logical qubit that outperforms its constituting physical qubits. This research is conducted on a state of the art cryogenic ion trapping system (see here) as well as in a well-established experiment based on a macroscopic trap (see here). The project is part of an international collaboration led by the group in Innsbruck.

Positions. Two postdoc positions are available in the quantum information processing team in Innsbruck (SQIP and LinTrap). One position will focus on exploring the realm of medium sized many-body quantum systems. An emphasis is laid on the implementation of paradigmatic quantum algorithms and methods to validate and verify medium to large-scale quantum systems. The second position will concentrate on aggressive development of new tools and methods towards a scalable and fault tolerant quantum information processor.
