Position Description:    

The Quantum Materials and Devices Lab in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at University of Notre Dame is seeking a postdoctoral researcher to work at the intersection of condensed matter physics and quantum information science. 

The main research topic is on the development of novel quantum bits (qubits). It will involve designing and fabricating superconducting quantum devices, handling and studying noble-gas quantum liquids and solids, measuring electronic and optical properties of materials and devices at millikelvin temperatures. 

The candidate should have a strong background in condensed matter physics, quantum physics, or related electrical, mechanical, and material engineering. Programming skills for controlling various electronic/optical hardware and performing quantum dynamics calculations are highly desirable. 

This position is funded and renewable up to three years. Further extension of appointment will depend on funding availability and mutual agreement.
