The role

A unique research engineer opportunity is available at the Quantum Engineering Technology Labs (QET Labs) at the University of Bristol. This role will conduct R&D in optical noise suppression; quantum enhanced sensing, quantum imaging and metrology as part of the £27M EPSRC-funded Quantum Technology Hub in Quantum Imaging (QuantIC).

QET Labs is a cluster of quantum-related activities that spans research, training and enterprise. A major thrust of QET Labs across these activities is to bring quantum sensing and imaging technologies out of the lab and into the real world.

What will I be doing

You will be a key part of the QuantIC project team at Bristol developing UV to near-IR quantum imaging, sensing, detection, and rangefinding technologies while working with university researchers and industrial partners. This innovative role will involve fibre and chip-scale pair photon source and parametric amplifier development; shot noise limited detector development, homodyne detection, single photon detection and sensing. There will be opportunities to build demonstrator systems, perform field trials and develop strong links to industry.

You should apply if

The successful applicant will work closely with Profs John Rarity and Jonathan Matthews and their team as well as engaging with all other members of QET Labs who have experience ranging from photonics device fabrication through to quantum information science theory.

This position is full-time (flexible working options are considered) with the funding end date to be confirmed upon appointment. QET Labs is committed to helping researchers become independent academics and have extensive experience in aiding PDRAs with fellowship applications.

We welcome applications from all members of our community and are particularly encouraging those from diverse groups, such as members of the LGBT+ and BAME communities, to join us.
