Job Description

Technology Innovation Institute  Abu Dhabi

Technology Innovation Institute (TII) is a publicly funded research institute, based in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. It is home to a diverse community of leading scientists, engineers, mathematicians, and researchers from across the globe, transforming problems and roadblocks into pioneering research and technology prototypes that help move society ahead.

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

The QRC at TII is launching world-class theoretical and experimental research groups on different quantum technologies (https://quantum.tii.ae/).


  • Documented skills in both analytical and numerical techniques to handle circuit Hamiltonians in different operating conditions (static, dynamics, dissipation.)
  • 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.


  • Active researchers in the field with at least 4 years post-doc experience after the PhD
  • Cover letter
  • 2 reference letters

At TII, we help society to overcome its biggest hurdles through a rigorous approach to scientific discovery and inquiry, using state-of-the-art facilities and collaboration with leading international institutions.
