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.
Your mission will be to develop and perform advanced electron microscopy analyses and research in Materials Characterization on structure comprising complex stacks of III-V semiconductors, superconductors, dielectrics, standard metals. You will work within a small team of materials specialists, with strong interactions with experimentalists working in device fabrication, low temperature quantum transport measurements and theory.
Your main activities will include:
Our ideal candidate for this position is an experienced Materials Scientist specialized in state-of-the-art material characterization methodologies and techniques in the field of Transmission Electron Microscopy, coupled with strong materials preparation skills, an applied physics & devices interest, and an affinity for industrial R&D.
Proven experience with lab management duties would be a plus.
