Jonas Bylander

Associate Professor at the Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience MC2, Quantum Technology Laboratory, room A727

Jonas Bylander has been on the faculty at Chalmers since 2013, teaching quantum optics, quantum information, and nanotechnology.

Jonas's current research is focused on building a quantum computer with superconducting circuits.

** We welcome applications from motivated postdocs with expertise in experimental quantum computing or closely related areas; microwave simulation and measurement techniques; optimal control techniques; and nanofabrication of solid-state quantum electronic devices with knowledge of materials and surfaces **
Principal investigator in the Wallenberg Centre for Quantum Technology (WACQT), an initiative aimed to bring Swedish academia and industry to the forefront of quantum technology and specifically to build a superconducting quantum computer.

Principal investigator in OpenSuperQ, a project with 10 partners funded by the European Commission's Flagship on Quantum Technology with the goal of building a superconducting quantum computer.
