R&D RFIC Designer for Quantum Computing

Job Description

In this position, you will be joining the Next Generation Radio Integration Lab within Radio Circuits and Architectures of Intel Labs. The lab research activity focus on enabling integration of next generation radio transceivers in deeply-scaled CMOS technologies like Intel 14nm finfet. We drive innovation in architecture, radio building-blocks and design methodologies to achieve beyond-state-of-the-art performance and maintain Moore's law scaling for both digital and RF/analog circuitry. The focus of this specific position is to develop integrated circuitry for control and read out of quantum bits qubits to enable future scaling of quantum computers. These control signals are in the range of microwaves 1-20GHz and typical architectures used today resembles very much RF transceivers or RF arbitrary waveform generators AWG.In this unique research position, your responsibilities will include:- Research into current state-of-the-art discrete RF/AWG architectures used for qubits control- Investigate minimum signal specifications, architectures and circuit design for RF/AWG system for qubit control to be integrated in deeply-scaled CMOS technologies and operate at very low-temperatures 10K- Develop high-level behavioral models to validate proposed system architectures- Design and validate circuit blocks and entire systems with RF/mixed signal design environments like Cadence- Participate into experimental verifications and measurements of fabricated silicon prototypesThe ideal candidate would exhibit the following behavioral traits: - Strong research attitude with broad intellectual curiosity and creative problem solving skills- Able to plan and achieve aggressive technical and schedule goals - Able to influence others through technical expertise - Able to make technical tradeoff decisions at the hardware, software and system design levels - Self-motivated - Good interpersonal and communications skills - Good collaboration ability and desire to work as a team player


QualificationsYou must possess the below minimum qualifications to be initially considered for this position. Preferred qualifications are in addition to the minimum requirements and are considered a plus factor in identifying top candidates. Experience listed below would be obtained through relevant previous job and/or research experiences. Minimum qualifications - Must have a PhD in Electrical Engineering with a focus on RF circuit design - At least one successful RF/analog/mixed-signal circuit tape-out completed in an advanced process technology- Very familiar with overall silicon prototyping flow design, validation, layout, tape-out, testing- Knowledge and experience in high-level system design and validation with behavioral models e.g. Matlab, Verilog, Veriloga, System Verilog, etc... - Knowledge and experience of architecture, design, implementation, and verification of RF/mixed-signal systems that include circuit blocks such as LNAs, Mixers, PAs, PLLs, VCOs, ADCs, DACs - Good DSP/signal processing skills- Must have familiarity with a set of wireless or wire-line communication specifications and derivation of block-level requirements from these high-level specifications - Understanding of CMOS process and device physics - Understanding of semiconductor packaging and post-Silicon chip testing - Hands-on experience with RF/analog/mixed-signal testing in the lab Preferred qualifications include: - good understanding of electro-magnetic modeling and simulation tools 3D preferred, like Ansoft HFSS- basic understanding of quantum computing - good overall understanding of current state-of-the-art for qubit design, fabrication and control preferred focus on superconducting qubits, e.g. transmons
