Silicon Quantum Technology - Postdoctoral Fellow

The Silicon Quantum Technology group (http://www.sfu.ca/physics/siliconquantum/) based at Simon Fraser University (SFU) in Metro Vancouver, Canada, invites applications for a postdoctoral experimentalist position, available immediately, on the subject of quantum repeater development.

We are looking for candidates with an excellent track record and Ph.D. on a closely related topic, with a parallel interest in quantum technology commercialization. Experience with solid-state photon memories and/or repeater designs and protocols would be an asset.

This full-time position is offered for two years with a possible 1-year extension. A salary of $65K CAD p.a. plus benefits (https://www.sfu.ca/human-resources/other/research-personnel-benefit-plan.html) is available.

Applicants should send their application to s.simmons [@] sfu.ca including a cover letter, CV including a publication list, a piece of original writing such as a first-first-authorship manuscript or a thesis, and the contact details of at least two references. Evaluation of applications will begin immediately and will continue until the position is filled.

Our group is committed to ensuring that no individual is denied access to employment opportunities for reasons unrelated to ability or qualifications. Consistent with this principle, we will advance the interests of underrepresented members of the work force, specifically Indigenous peoples, persons with disabilities, visible minorities, and women; embrace gender and sexual diversity; ensure that equal opportunity is afforded to all who seek employment at the University; and treat all employees equitably. Thus, candidates that belong to underrepresented groups in Physics are particularly welcome to apply.
