The Opportunity

You will undertake research in the recently establish project: “Quantum control based on real-time environment analysis by spectator qubits” The project aims at demonstrating an unprecedented capability: a noise-cancelling system for quantum bits in silicon. The role will contribute to the design, fabrication and operation of a system of spin-based quantum bits in silicon where one acts as the “spectator” and the other as the “data” qubit. The Research Associate will develop and implement advanced control sequences for complex, multi-spin devices, in liaison with our theory collaborators.


The role of Research Associate reports to Scientia Professor Andrea Morello.
