The Institute invites applications from individuals for Research Associate Position in the Light and Matter Physics group to be associated with the Quantum Information and Computing lab headed by Prof. Urbasi Sinha. The candidates must possess excellent and consistent academic record and core competence and research aptitude in Physics, especially desirable in the areas of experimental physics, primarily optics and electronics.
The selected candidate will work on developing high-end experiments towards quantum random number generation and quantum communication, including long distance quantum teleportation.The appointment will be for two years (1+1). The extension for the second year will be based on satisfactory performance in the first year. The details of the required qualifications and experience are given below. There will be an initial probationary period of two months
1.Remuneration: 1st Year: Rs. 47,000 / Rs. 49,000 + HRA @ 24% p.m , 2nd Year: Rs. 49,000 / Rs 54,000 + HRA @ 24% p.m
2.Note: Those who have submitted the thesis, but are yet to complete the requirements for award of Ph.D will be paid Rs. 38,000/- [email protected]% p.m A higher initial start may be considered in deserving case.
3.Essential: PhD (areas relevant to the job description). Those who have submitted the thesis but are yet to complete the requirements for the award of Ph.D may also apply.Programming knowledge in Labview and at least one of Matlab/Mathematica. Familiarity with quantum information/ quantum communication-based research work and familiarity with basic concepts in the field through course work, online classes etc. For instance, Knowledge of quantum information at the level of “Quantum Computation and Quantum Information” by Nielsen and Chuang [especially chapters 1, 2, 7 and 12].
4.Desirable: The candidate should be motivated and should have a flair for experimental work as well as programming skills. 75% or more marks in aggregate or equivalent CGPA in the qualifying course is desirable. Prior experience of working in an optics-based lab environment and familiarity with practical handling of optical and opto-mechanical components as well as equipment like signal generators, spectrum analysers and digital oscilloscopes.
