Our research is focused on the development of new hybrid semiconductor-superconductor platforms to enable the application of Majorana bound states for topological quantum computing.
Cryogenic measurements - both DC transport and high-frequency - are at the core of our qubit activities. We deal with various types of cryogenic test equipment, as well as custom and COTS RF/DC electronic systems and require extensive electrical characterization of our devices. As a cryo engineer in our lab you will closely work with researchers to design, build, and test new cryogenic components to enable state-of-the-art qubit experiments. Your dedication will make sure that research progresses smoothly, and experiments can be conducted at the highest level.
- PhD in physics or electrical engineering or Master's degree with additional relevant work experience;
- At least three years of experience with operating and maintaining dilution refrigerators;
- Experience with 3D CAD tools such as Inventor or SolidWorks;
- Excellent written and oral communication skills in English;
- Strong team mentality and enthusiasm to work in a diverse, international team.
Preference will be given to candidates with the following skills:
- Experience with RF test equipment such as spectrum analyzers and vector network analyzers;
- Experience with RF modeling tools such as Sonnet, Microwave Office, or HFSS;
- Experience with PCB design.
