Post-doctoral and Research Engineer positions in quantum technologies

Full Time
Employment Information

ICFO is offering postdoctoral and research engineer positions to a well-qualified, highly motivated and dynamic young scientists who wish to enhance their scientific career in a friendly and stimulating environment.

The successful candidate will be joining the Optoelectronics group led by Prof. Dr. Valerio Pruneri.

The group has experience in the study and developing of new advanced materials, devices and systems for information and communication technologies, in particular displays, image sensors and cybersecurity. The main driving is to carry out research which bridges academia and industry, by developing fundamental ideas with great potential for revolutionizing future photonic products.

The candidates will work on projects aimed at building the next generation of quantum cryptography, entanglement distribution systems, quantum imaging and processing. The hosting group has developed technology for continuous variable quantum key distribution and quantum random number generation, now being commercialized by two ICFO’s spin-offs, Luxquanta and Quside, respectively. The next step is to develop entanglement and decoy state based systems for secure communication and quantum connections for both ground and space segments, and quantum processing and imaging devices. The group is currently involved in several European projects.

This study was supported by MCIN with funding from European Union NextGenerationEU (PRTR-C17).
