Postdoctoral research position in ESR quantum information processing

An open postdoctoral position at the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC), University of Waterloo, focuses on the application of coherent control techniques in ESR to address challenges in the field of quantum information processing. Recent research in our group has spanned topics including algorithmic cooling, randomized benchmarking of quantum gate fidelities, and closed-loop (feedback) methods for quantum control. A successful candidate will have obtained a PhD in Physics, Chemistry or related fields with an emphasis in ESR spectroscopy. Experience with pulsed methods such as ESEEM and pulsed ENDOR is strongly preferred.

IQC is a world-leading institute for research and education in Quantum Information. Its 30 faculty members lead thriving research programs spanning the areas of Applied Mathematics, Chemistry, Combinatorics & Optimization, Computer Science, Electrical & Computer Engineering and Physics & Astronomy. IQC has significantly expanded its infrastructure to support experimental research, with a state-of-the-art nanofabrication and metrology centre. Our laboratory facilities include low-temperature pulsed ESR and ENDOR capabilities.

Interested applicants please contact Prof. Jonathan Baugh ( or Prof. Raymond Laflamme ( for more information on the position and how to apply. Applications will be accepted until the position is filled.
