MIT Lincoln Laboratory Superconducting Qubit Experimentalist 1 in Lexington, Massachusetts
Group 89—Quantum Information and Integrated Nanosystems Group The Quantum Information and Integrated Nanosystems Group conducts quantum information science research from a shared foundation of innovative control-signal design, outstanding fabrication tools, and well-equipped measurement laboratories. The group has a broad range of experimental and prototyping activities. The group's quantum information science activities include the development of superconducting and trapped-ion qubits and quantum sensing with nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers in diamond. In addition, the group has robust capabilities in classical superconducting circuits, complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) design and fabrication, and integrated photonics. These component technologies are used in synergy with quantum information science demonstrations, as well as in standalone applications that include beyond-CMOS circuit technologies, energy-starved sensors, compact optical communication and laser radar transceivers, and microwave photonic signal processing.
The group seeks full time technical staff to join the team developing next generation superconducting circuits for gate-model and quantum annealing computing applications. The successful candidate will be responsible for conceiving experiments, designing qubits and supporting circuits, participating in the realization of the experimental setup, performing experiments, and analyzing results. Will work with a team of physicists and engineers to develop circuits with multiple qubits in 2-dimensional arrays with 3-dimensional interconnects.
Requirements: PhD in Physics, Electrical Engineering or related field. Must have strong background in relevant experimental quantum systems and strong data analysis skills. Prior research experience with superconducting qubits and hands-on experience with low-noise cryogenic measurements is highly desired.
