About Tsinghua

Tsinghua University is a research university in Beijing, and is ranked as one of the top academic institutions in China and Asia. The State Key Laboratory of Low-Dimensional Quantum Physics, managed by the Department of Physics of Tsinghua University, is currently focused on major scientific problems and issues in the field of low-dimensional quantum physics. It is becoming an international academic paradise that researchers favor and students aspire to join, and continues to serve as an important base for quantum physics research and personnel training.


Open positions:

1. Condensed Matter Experiment (Open until position filled)

Two or three postdoc positions in quantum transport experiment for Majorana zero modes and topological quantum computation are available in Prof. Hao Zhang’s group in the State Key Laboratory of Low-Dimensional Quantum Physics, Department of Physics, Tsinghua University.

Experience with the techniques such as nano-device fabrication, low-temperature quantum transport measurement are highly relevant. Expertise with superconducting qubit circuit and microwave measurement is a plus.

Required Qualifications:

  • Ph.D. in physics or other related disciplines (e.g. electrical engineering)
  • Knowledge of quantum mechanics and condensed matter physics

Preferred Skills and Experience:

  • State of Art nano-fabrication
  • Cryogenics/dilution refrigerator
  • Low-noise quantum transport

Applicants should provide a Curriculum Vita with a publication list, a short statement of previous research to hzquantum@mail.tsinghua.edu.cn . For more details and information about the position, please contact Prof. Hao Zhang at the same email address.


2. Condensed Matter Theory (The review process will start in Feb 10st 2019)

One or two position in the quantum condensed matter theory are available in Prof. Dong E. Liu’s group in State Key Laboratory of Low-Dimensional Quantum Physics, Department of Physics, Tsinghua University, beginning in the April of 2019. The successful candidate will be expected to perform theoretical studies in one of the following topics:1) Quantum control, qubit validation, and quantum measurement scheme in superconducting-Majorana hybrid qubit systems; 2) quantum transport in topological devices (Majorana, quantum anomalous hall effect,…); 3) Non-equilibrium many-body systems

With one of the following experiences would be a very strong plus:

·       Transport theory in Mesoscopic quantum systems, Mesoscopic superconductivity

·       Superconducting qubits and circuit-QED

·       Qubit validation theory, e.g. randomized benchmarking, quantum tomography…

·       Quantum error correction and fault-tolerant architecture

·       Quantum field theory out of equilibrium

 

Applicants should provide a Curriculum Vita with a publication list, a short statement of previous research to dongeliu@mail.tsinghua.edu.cn before Feb 10st 2019. For more details and information about the position, please contact Dong E. Liu.


Salary: 

Appointments will be made with a 2-year initial contract, renewable up to 3 years depending on the funding. The initial salary is 200K-250K Chinese Yuan per year according to qualifications, and a salary increase or bonus is possible at the end of each year based on the performance. Highly qualified candidates are encouraged to apply the fellowship at Tsinghua University with the salary being 300k Yuan per year.

How to apply:

Applicants should provide a Curriculum Vita with a publication list, a short statement of previous research to hzquantum@mail.tsinghua.edu.cn (CM experiment), or dongeliu@mail.tsinghua.edu.cn (CM theory).
