The University of Sheffield are seeking to appoint a post-doctoral research associate for the Programme Grant – “Quantum and Many Body PhysicsEnabled by Advanced Semiconductor Nanotechnology” – supported by the UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). This is a five-year programme with £6.1 M funding. The project aims to explore the behaviour of nano-devices operating in regimes where fundamentally new types of quantum-photonic phenomena occur, with potential to underpin the next generation of quantum technologies.

This post is associated with the part of the programme on III-V semiconductor quantum dots. The research will be conducted in state-of-the-art laboratories in Sheffield and will involve developing on-chip interfaces between electron and hole spins in quantum dots embedded within photonic structures with broken symmetry.
