Çağlar Girit obtained his B.Sc. from MIT (2003) and his Ph.D. from UC Berkeley in 2010 under advisor Prof. Alex Zettl.

During his Ph.D. (2004-2010) he studied electronic and structural properties of graphene and hybrid graphene-superconductor devices. As a postdoctoral researcher (2010-2014), he measured Andreev bound states in superconducting atomic contacts.

He started the Flux Quantum Lab in the Young Team Incubator at Collège de France in September 2014.  In October 2014, he became a French National Research Agency (CNRS) permanent researcher (CR1).  His collaborators include the Quantronics Group, at SPEC, CEA-Saclay (CNRS UMR 3680).

He received a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship (2004-2007), the UC Berkeley Lars Commins Memorial Award (2009), and a Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellowship (2012-2014).  His research is supported by an IDEX grant ANR-10-IDEX-0001-02 PSL (2014-2016), Paris Programme Emergence(s) Grant (2014-2018), and an ERC Starting Grant (2015-2020).
