The Department of Physics & Astronomy (ranked first in the UK in the 2021 Research Excellence Framework) is seeking to appoint outstanding academics/early career researcher to work within our Quantum Physics and Technology Research Group. The group currently has 8 professors, 1 senior lecturer, 4 early-career research fellows, 17 post-doctoral researchers, and 20 PhD students. We work on experimental and theoretical projects in quantum physics including: III-V quantum dots, single-photon sources, polaritons, 2D materials, topological photonics, photonic quantum technologies, quantum error correction, quantum imaging and quantum metrology. We are supported by a broad base of research council grants and are part of the EPSRC Quantum Communications Hub. The group has state-of-the-art optical laboratories, and the University hosts world-class facilities in semiconductor epitaxial growth and nanofabrication. 

We welcome applications from aspiring leaders with expertise in either experimental or theoretical physics. We are seeking to make appointments to complement and strengthen our present research portfolio but will also consider applications in the broader field of quantum technologies should candidates with suitable experience present themselves.
