Current Openings 

Prof. Norbert Linke’s research group at the Joint Quantum Institute,  at the University of Maryland Department of Physics is an experimental group working with trapped atomic ions on different applications in quantum physics. These include quantum information processing, in particular the implementation of quantum algorithms and enhancing the power of quantum computers with machine learning techniques, the simulation of interesting quantum phenomena, and quantum networking with entangled near-telecom ion-photons.

If you are interested in working with Prof. Linke's group as a post-doc, graduate student or for an undergraduate project, please get in touch by emailing

The field of circuit QED has emerged as a rich platform for both quantum computation and quantum simulation. Lattices of coplanar waveguide (CPW) resonators realize artificial photonic materials in the tight-binding limit. Combined with strong qubit-photon interactions, these systems can be used to study dynamical phase transitions, many-body phenomena, and spin models in driven-dissipative systems. These waveguide cavities are uniquely deformable and can produce lattices and networks which cannot readily be obtained in other systems, including periodic lattices in a hyperbolic space of constant negative curvature, and the one-dimensional nature of CPW resonators leads to degenerate flat bands. In our lab, we build experimental implementations of these systems using superconducting circuits.
