We are seeking an enthusiastic postdoctoral researcher for a new project to develop a microwave parametric amplifier based on quantum paraelectricity. Superconducting parametric amplifiers are exquisitely sensitive and can resolve signals at the smallest levels allowed by quantum mechanics. We are developing amplifiers that aim to work in a magnetic field, which existing technologies based on Josephson junctions cannot do. Our initial aim is to develop an amplifier that can be used to search for dark matter as part of the QSHS experiment currently under construction. After that there are many potential applications including quantum computing and microscopy.
