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.
The aim is to develop applied research projects, in the context of the TU Delft/Microsoft partnership, to further the state-of-art Molecular Beam epitaxy (MBE) on a cluster tool focused on nanoelectronics devices and quantum transport physics; to publish in high-quality journals, pursue intellectual property, and foster collaborative work while inspiring others to do the same. The post does not incorporate teaching duties.
Your activities will include:
Our ideal candidate for this position is an experienced material scientist in the field of compound semiconductors with strong materials characterization skills, has an applied physics & devices interest, and has an affinity for industrial R&D.
Preference will be given to candidates with experience in device physics, device fabrication, and electrical characterization expertise.
TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package, a discount for health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged. An International Children’s Centre offers childcare and an international primary school. Dual Career Services offers support to accompanying partners. Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities.
