CMOS Quantum Computer


Project Description

The UCD School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering seeks applications from graduates with an interest in quantum technologies, quantum computing and CMOS circuit design. The quantum technologies group at UCD is developing a fully integrated semiconductor quantum processor SoC realized in FD-SOI technologies. We design a mixed-signal control unit of the quantum processor, carry out research on quantum structures realising charge and hybrid qubits and developing software to control qubits. There are two available PhD positions, one with a focus on integrated circuit design for CMOS quantum computers and one with a focus on quantum physics and modelling.

The minimum requirements are:

· Undergraduate or postgraduate degree in electronic engineering, physics or mathematics.

· Problem-solving skills, programming ability, understanding of circuit design or quantum physics.

· Non-native English speakers require to have passed one of the language tests recognised at UCD (the list of tests is available here https://www.ucd.ie/registry/admissions/elr.html).

To apply, please email your cover letter and CV to Group Manager Sunisa Staszewski ().

Prof Robert Bogdan Staszewski (http://www.bogdanst.com) will be the Principal Supervisor of the project related to CMOS design for quantum computers and Prof Elena Blokhina will be the Principal Supervisor of the project related to the physics of the quantum computer. We strongly encourage you to read our publications before contacting us. Our publications are available at: http://www.bogdanst.com/journals.html.

Each student will receive a tax-free stipend of €18,500 per year for four years, full coverage of tuition fees, conference allowance, and materials/equipment allowance.
