Upon application of ETH President Lino Guzzella the ETH Board appointed a total of eight professors — including physics professor Jonathan Home — and awarded the title of professor to one individual.
Professor Jonathan Home (*1979), currently Tenure Track Assistant Professor at ETH Zurich, as Associate Professor of Experimental Quantum Information. Jonathan Home’s main research focus is on the topics of quantum state engineering, simulation and information processing using ion traps. Using the precise control available with this technology, he investigates interactions between a quantum system and its environment. By appointing Jonathan Home, this year's winner of the ETH Zurich Latsis Prize, the Federal Institute of Technology is retaining a highly qualified scientist and underlining the great importance it attaches to the quantum sciences and quantum technologies.
