The Australian Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation & Communication Technology is the world’s
largest team working to develop a scalable spin based quantum computing architecture in silicon. Headquartered
in Sydney, the Centre is renowned internationally for its pioneering research in atomic manipulation, atomic
electronics and high frequency cryogenic control of qubits in silicon. The Centre is expanding and offering
unique research associate positions and PhD scholarships.
2 PhD Scholarships, Silicon Quantum Computation and Atomic Electronics
(Salary Level: AUD $26,000 per annum with a supplement of up to $6,000 per annum for first
class degrees or equivalent)
PhD student: Silicon Quantum Computation
We seek outstanding and enthusiastic PhD candidates to work in multi-qubit
silicon-based quantum computation with ESR control and to develop and electrically characterize a novel quantum
integrated circuit chip based on atomically precise three dimensional architectures. Candidates will learn the
latest techniques in our internationally unique atomic manipulation program in how to make and measure devices
with atomic-scale precision using low noise, high frequency electrical measurements at cryogenic temperatures.
