Seeking post-doctoral candidate in superconducting nanowires

Post-doctoral candidate sought with experience suitable for performing research in one or more of the following areas: superconducting electronics/detectors, low temperature physics, applications of superconducting devices, and related research topics. The post-doc will have an opportunity to develop superconducting-nanowire-based devices and apply them to quantum information science, energy-efficient classical computation, and the study of superconducting physics, as well as the opportunity to collaborate on other ongoing and new projects in our research group. The new hire will assist in planning and management of group activities, especially in mentoring graduate and undergraduate students, planning and executing research programs, and raising funds for research. The candidate must have a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering, Applied Physics, or a related field. The initial emphasis of the work will be on the development superconducting circuits based on nanowire cryotrons for applications to superconducting memories and optical-electronic interfaces. Applications to single-photon will also be investigated.

Interested candidates may apply at http://goo.gl/forms/mleVXYlfWydeymej2. If this link is unavailable to you for any reason (some geographic locations block google forms), you may contact Dorothy Fleischer (dotf@mit.edu) for assistance in completing the form. Applications will be evaluated as received, with a candidate selection and appointment expected in the Fall of 2016.
