The Department of Physics at the University of Otago is New Zealand's top ranked Physics Department, and is located in the centre of the scenic Otago province. Our department has a vibrant research environment with strength in both theoretical and experimental AMO as well as linear, non-linear and quantum optics research.
The Resonant Optics group is part of the Dodd-Walls Centre for photonic and quantum technologies, a national center of research excellence.
In this position, you will join the resonant optics group in a project that aims to connect superconducting quantum circuit to the telecommunication domain. You will use the resonant enhancement of a high quality monolithic resonator to enhance the non-linear interaction in order convert microwave photons into optical photons. The set-up will be within a helium-3 dilution fridge and in the future be coupled to superconducting qubits.
Your skills and experience
You should have a PhD in Physics, and a demonstrated strength in one or more of the following areas within experimental physics:
Superconducting microwave qubits
Non-linear optics in second order non-linearities
This is a full-time, fixed-term appointment for two years.
a current CV with research skills and publication list
a short letter describing research accomplishments and interests as well as your motivation for joining our lab (one page maximum)
contact details for at least two individuals willing to provide references.
There is no formal closing date and applications will be considered individually on receipt. The University reserves the right to close this vacancy at any time.
