The Quantum Physics division directed by Prof. Luigi Amico at the Quantum Research Center (QRC), Technology Innovation Institute (TII) recently established in Abu Dhabi, is seeking a well-qualified, highly motivated, and dynamic Lead Researcher (Tenure track) in the area of theoretical analysis of superconducting circuits.

TII is a newly-established top-level state institute aiming at becoming a major international hub for Science & Technology (see The QRC at TII is launching world-class theoretical and experimental research groups on different quantum technologies (see

The position is reserved to active researchers in the field with at least 4 years post-doc experience after the Ph.D.

Documented skills in both analytical and numerical techniques to handle circuit Hamiltonians in different operating conditions (static, dynamics, dissipation..) as well as experience in quantum transport, superconductivity, and related topics will be appreciated. Although the planned activity is theoretical, close contact with experiments will be sought both in the local facilities and abroad.

The probation period for the tenure is five years. The salary is very competitive. Travel funds, further personal allowance and family benefits are provided by TII. The deadline for the application is January 15th, 2022.

Candidates should provide a curriculum vitae, a brief letter of motivation, a summary of their research experience, and a list of publications. Two reference letters should be arranged to be sent directly to
