PhD Positions in the Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation & Communication Technology


The Australian Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation & Communication Technology is the world’s largest team working to develop a scalable spin based quantum computing architecture in silicon. Headquartered in Sydney, the Centre is renowned internationally for its pioneering research in atomic manipulation, atomic electronics, and high frequency cryogenic control of qubits in silicon.

PhD student: Silicon Quantum Computation We seek outstanding and enthusiastic PhD candidates to work (1) in multi-qubit silicon-based quantum computation with ESR control and (2) to develop and electrically characterize a novel quantum integrated circuit chip based on atomically precise three dimensional architectures. Candidates will learn the latest techniques in our internationally unique atomic manipulation program in how to make and measure devices with atomic-scale precision using low noise, high frequency electrical measurements at cryogenic temperatures.

Applications close:      30 June 2015 or until position filled
