AI generated summary

  • The candidate must be a full-time undergraduate student in physics or a related field, with knowledge of programming languages, quantum mechanics, and data analysis techniques. They should have good communication and organizational skills, as well as experience in research and programming. Awareness of quantum computing or superconducting circuits is also required.
  • The candidate will learn and apply knowledge of quantum computing concepts and superconducting qubits to solve theoretical or experimental problems in superconducting circuits, participate in group activities and discussions, and share their findings with internal teams through meetings and presentations.

Summer Internship



  • We are the National Quantum Computing Centre are ready to welcome two summer placement students to undertake a short (8-12) week research project within the NQCCs Superconducting Circuits team!
  • This is a great opportunity to learn the theory surrounding superconducting circuits, gain research experience, and present your work to others at the NQCC.
  • You will perform simulations or experiments relating to superconducting qubits, analyse the resulting data, and produce presentations and a written report of the findings. You may also have the opportunity to help the team within the lab for some simple tasks – depending on your lab experience.
  • You will get to participate in group meetings with the Superconducting Circuits team and wider NQCC activities such as Journal Club - and Cake Club!


  • Are in full time education at university, and will be returning to university/your studies to complete your undergraduate degree following the placement
  • Have the right to live and work in the UK for the duration of the placement
  • Currently studying an undergraduate physics, theoretical physics, mathematical physics, computer science or related degree
  • Knowledge of programming languages and techniques
  • Knowledge of quantum mechanics to undergraduate level
  • Knowledge of data analysis techniques
  • Good communication skills
  • Good organizational and problem-solving skills
  • Basic research skills i.e., use of journals
  • Experience of programming in languages such as Python, Matlab, Labview etc
  • Knowledge/awareness of Quantum Computing or Superconducting Circuits
  • Research experience as part of a larger project
  • Knowledge of STFC/NQCC
