NETWORK ENGINEER, Research Laboratory of Electronics-Quantum Photonics Group, to develop a quantum network testbed in the Boston area. Core competencies are in system-level engineering for the Boston-area quantum network testbed. A special focus is on engineering system design, optoelectric control, photonic integrated circuits, packaging and interfaces, high-speed analog feedback, and quantum photonics. The project will involve a close collaboration with other researchers in the Center for Quantum Networks and with MIT Lincoln Laboratory. Responsibilities will include managing quantum network development, including ensuring the operation of essential equipment; serving as the primary contact for all team members; contributing to progress reports (written and presentations) in a leading capacity; designing and implementing strategies to effectively manage network operations; mentoring students and postdocs on the quantum network build; and coordinating key collaborations with sub-award teams and ensuring effective and productive relationships across the program. The Quantum Photonics Group (https://www.rle.mit.edu/qp/) , led by Professor Dirk Englund, pursues devices and systems for scalable quantum technologies.
REQUIRED: a Ph.D. in electrical engineering, applied physics, or related field; and at least six years’ experience in research and development (R&D). PREFERRED: industry experience building optoelectronic systems; a publication record; MIT experience; experience with or willingness to learn new laboratory management software; and research experience in engineering system design, optoelectric control, photonic integrated circuits, packaging and interfaces, and high-speed analog feedback.
