As Lecturer/Senior Lecturer (equivalent to Assistant/Associate Professor) in Electronic and Electrical Engineering you will have the opportunity to develop a program of research in quantum technology with colleagues in the Department’s Semiconductor Devices and Materials group, the National Epitaxy Facility, hosted in the Department, and with colleagues in Physics as part of the Sheffield Quantum Centre. We are looking for candidates within the field of Semiconductor Quantum Technologies, which may include quantum computing, quantum information technology and quantum sensing/metrology. We welcome applications from outstanding academics who are leaders, or aspiring leaders, in this emerging field.
The Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering, within the Faculty of Engineering, enjoys a long-standing reputation for world leading research in the areas of electromagnetics, semiconductors and communications. The Department was recently recognised as top 3 for its teaching and top 10 for research in the UK. Semiconductor research has been ongoing in the Department for over 50 years, during which we have developed unique facilities and expertise that have made Sheffield one of the top University research sites for semiconductor research in the UK.
