PhD in Engineering - Three-dimensional (3D) integration of superconducting qubits


College of Science and Engineering

, Applications accepted all year round Competition Funded PhD Project (European/UK Students Only)

About the Project

We are searching for a highly motivated student to work on coherent scaling solutions for superconducting quantum processors. The aim of this project is to bring together the world-leading and complementary expertise by UofG, NPL and OIPT to develop vertical scaling strategies for high-quality superconducting qubits. This high-impact result will then be employed for the integration of quantum circuits for quantum computing.

You will have access to state-of-the-art facilities and be supported by world-leading experts. You will gain expertise in modelling and fabrication of quantum circuits, measurement using advanced microwave setups, data processing, cryogenics, and quantum technologies. The project is multidisciplinary in nature and you will have the opportunity to work with industry and academia. The project will also provide opportunities to publish your research in leading journals and to attend international conferences in the field.

The project is based at the University of Glasgow, with some work to be done at NPL and OIPT.
The University of Glasgow (UofG) is home to world-leading research in the fields of Quantum Technologies, and home to the James Watt Nanofabrication Centre (JWNC), UK’s leading Nanofabrication cleanroom to deliver circuits, devices, systems and solutions.
The National Physical Laboratory (NPL) is the UK’s National Metrology Institute. Providing the measurement capabilities, science and engineering related to the scaling of quantum processors is one of its key technical areas.
Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology (OIPT) is a leading provider of state-of-the-art process solutions for the fabrication of key components in quantum systems.

Interested candidates are recommended to contact Prof Martin Weides, at , for an informal discussion before they submit their full application online. They shall include a copy of their CV in pdf format.

Eligibility: 2.1 degree in Science and/or engineering


How to apply
Informal enquiries may be made to at NPL or at UofG.
