"Spicy world of NanoScience"
PhD position in trapped ion quantum technology and nanoscience at the University of Sussex, Brighton, UK
A three-year PhD position is available in the Ion Quantum Technology Group in the Department of Physics & Astronomy at the University of Sussex. The position is funded in conjunction with an EPSRC funded £1.4M Leadership fellowship for the development of quantum technology with nanofabricated ion trap chips.
Application deadline: please apply preferentially by 20 December 2012 and no later than January 30 (applications after 20 December and until January 30 will be considered if position is not filled)
Research in novel quantum technologies will likely lead to step changing innovations which will affect many areas of modern sciences. Implementing such technologies with trapped ions quantum bits has been widely accepted as one of the most promising pathways. The aim of this studentship is to produce advanced nano-fabricated ion chips and to carry out entanglement experiments with trapped ions in order to build a practical ion trap quantum computer.
