Postdoctoral Position in Quantum Matter and Devices Lab

Applications are invited for postdoctoral positions in the group of Professor Yong P. Chen, the Quantum Matter and Devices (QMD) Laboratory affiliated with Purdue Physics, ECE, Purdue Quantum Science and Engineering Institute and Birck Nanotechnology Center. Candidates with strong background in experimental research in one of the following areas/topics are welcome:

1) Experimental condensed matter/nano physics & quantum devices: especially solid state quantum devices, quatum computing and quantum sensing (e.g., superconducting Josephson junctions, spin qubits, NV centers); 

2) Experimental AMO physics and quantum optics: such as cold atom physics, quantum optics & photonics

Please send CV to yongchen@purdue.edu.

Other Openings

The QMD group welcomes applications from exceptionally motivated and qualified individuals at postdoctoral, graduate and undergraduate levels. Research areas include experimental nanophysics and devices, condensed matter and material physics, atomic molecular and optical physics and quantum information. More detailed descriptions on current research projects can be found in www.physics.purdue.edu/quantum/research.php. Interested candidates should contact Prof. Yong P. Chen (yongchen@purdue.edu).


Additional postdoc opportunities:

1) Lillian Gilbreth Postdoctoral Fellowships at Purdue Engineering (next due date Dec. 15, 2018;  select projects on "quantum photonics+spintronics in 2D materials, joint with Prof. V. Shalaev" or "spintronics and quantum devices with high Tc materials, joint with Prof. Haiyan Wang", or propose your own project) 

2) Joint postdoc opportunities with AIMR International Materials Research Center at Tohoku University, Sendai, Japan ("Quantum Materials and Spintronics" International Joint Lab, position based in AIMR and can work and spend time in both Tohoku and Purdue, making use of facilities in both sites)
