Pre-Doctoral position at the Institute of Microelectronics of Barcelona, IMB-CNM-CSIC, and the Quantum Computing Technology Group – IFAE
The Institute of Microelectronics of Barcelona (IMB-CNM-CSIC) and the Quantum Computing Technologies (QCT) group of the Institute for High Energy Physics (IFAE) offer a contract for a co-supervised pre-doctoral position within the project Micro-nano fabrication technologies for mitigation of radiation effects (MINARE), recently funded by the MICINN.
Project MINARE, as part of coordinated project IRCQ (Interaction of Cosmic Radiation with Qubits), aims at overcoming detrimental effects on qubit coherence caused by ionizing radiation by exploring on-chip solutions based on new materials and advanced processing. The project includes
establishing the production and consolidation of conventional superconducting circuits based on aluminum thin films, while proposing two unconventional strategies for reducing quasiparticle effects or managing internal losses.
Applications should be submitted before 31 December 2022.
