We are hiring!

The Quantum Communications Hub is seeking to employ a postdoctoral research associate to work  in experiment and technology. The post is offered by the University of York and based at the National Physical Laboratory, at Teddington. The successful candidate will establish the measurement infrastructure for characterising optical hardware developed within the Hub consortium. In this role, existing NPL measurement capability will be applied to fibre-based systems and extended to chip-scale components and hardware for short-range, free-space applications. This requires interfacing NPL measurement facilities with Hub-developed devices. Importantly, the role holder will establish a quantum communications node at NPL for participation in demonstrations over the UK Quantum Network being established by the Hub.

The successful candidate will be an enthusiastic scientist or engineer who will contribute across this technology development spectrum.

Informal enquiries regarding this post based at the National Physical Laboratory at Teddington, UK, may be made to: Dr Alastair Sinclair ( Informal enquiries regarding the Quantum Communications Hub may be made to: Professor Tim Spiller ( 322254).
