The U.S. Naval Research Laboratory in Washington, DC has postdoctoral research positions available in the Quantum Science and Technology Section. The section works at the boundary between experimental condensed matter physics and emerging quantum technologies with a particular focus on optically-active solid state quantum systems. Current research thrusts include:
- Optically addressable defect spin qubits in Si, SiC, and hBN
- 2D layered materials and their heterostructures
- Single and entangled photon sources
- Quantum sensing
- Quantum networking
- Integrated photonics
- Neuromorphic computing
Applicants should have demonstrated laboratory experience and a record of publication in quantum information science, solid state physics, or a closely-related field and must be a US Citizen or US Permanent Resident (green card).
