Quantum Computing Hardware Engineer

Job Description

Components Research is looking for a PhD level engineer to fabricate and characterize qubits, as well as perform simple computations of quantum circuits in dilution refrigerators. Both spin qubit in Si and superconducting qubits will be studied. An understanding of dilution fridge installation and operation is a must. Hands on expertise with device electrical measurements is required. You will need to efficiently communicate and collaborate daily with other groups to determine and validate success criteria. Independent design and follow-through of unique, enabling ideas is a key expectation from this role. This position includes ownership of measurement equipment and collaboration with external research groups and vendor programs.

The ideal candidate should exhibit the following behavior skills:

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills.
  • Keen experimental insight with an ability to devise and focus on key experiments.
  • Highly motivated, and excited by self-directed, hands-on work.

Minimum Requirements:
The candidate must have:
• Ph.D. in Physics or Electrical Engineering.
• A minimum of 4 yrs of experience through your Ph.D. research in dilution refrigeration and cryogenic electrical measurements.
• Unrestricted right to work in the US without requiring sponsorship.
• Low-temperature packaging.
Preferred Qualifications:
• 1+ year’s proven experience in:

 Dilution refrigeration and cryogenic electrical measurements at 1K temperatures.
 CMOS devices and superconducting metals system.
 RF control of qubits and RF design specific to qubit control- 3 or more 1st author publications.
 Interest in performing a 2 yr research assignment at TU-Delft as part of an Intel Partnership.
 Experience with quantum computation is a plus.
