Uren per week:
38 - 38 uur


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.

Material science and fabrication are the foundation and the enablers of qubit devices. We deal with complex stacks of different materials combined at the nanoscale and require state-of-the art metrology and in-depth morphological, structural and compositional analysis. Fabrication of qubit devices is a challenging, multi-step process pushing the boundaries of nanotechnology and nano-patterning techniques. You can play a key role in the development of our ground-breaking approach to quantum computing by helping to realize quantum devices with quality and control well beyond the current state of the art.

We are looking for an excellent fabrication engineer to develop and fabricate on-chip resonators to be used for qubit readout.

Primary job responsibilities would include:

  • Designing and development of on-chip microwave resonator fabrication with selective-area-grown nanowires,
  • Coordinating with other teams to ensure process compatibility with nanowire growth,
  • Qualifying, monitoring, and controlling the developed processes,
  • Supporting with microwave resonator fabrication in research projects.

Roadmap Topological Quantum Computing
QuTech is organized into several roadmaps. The roadmap Topological Quantum Computing is one of the leading groups in the field of topological condensed matter physics. Within this roadmap a group, led by Prof. Leo Kouwenhoven, of roughly 40 scientists, engineers and students, uses various semiconductor-superconductor hybrid systems to study the physics of Majorana zero modes. The aim of this research is to explore and develop the next generation of quantum hardware, based on topologically protected quantum bits (qubits). Within the QuTech/Microsoft partnership, the Topological Quantum Computing roadmap operates in close collaboration with the Microsoft Quantum Lab in Delft.


  • Master's degree or Bachelor's degree with 1-2 years of experience Nanotechnology, Electrical engineering, or related disciplines
  • Understanding of nanofabrication engineering principles and process development
  • Experience with microwave resonator fabrication and measurement is considered an advantage
  • Ability to integrate and work in a multi-disciplinary, international team and effectively collaborate and communicate to meet the goals


  • A salary according to the Collective Labor Agreement of the Dutch Universities, plus 8% holiday allowance and an end-of-year bonus of 8.3% (min. € 2790 - max. € 4402 gross per month based on a full-time basis).
  • An excellent pension scheme via the ABP.
  • The possibility to compile an individual employment package every year.
  • Discount with health insurers.
  • Flexible working week.
  • Every year, 232 leave hours (at 38 hours). You can also sell or buy additional leave hours via the individual choice budget.
  • Plenty of opportunities for education, training and courses.
  • Partially paid parental leave
  • Attention for working healthy and energetically with the Health Coach Program.
