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.

To support the experiments in our group we use a collection of commercial and custom software, ranging from commercial FEM packages to our own in-house measurement code. We are currently seeking a simulation engineer to support the development of our ground-breaking approach to quantum computing.

As a simulation engineer you will be part of the team that is responsible for the design, analysis, and interpretation of the state-of-the-art qubit experiments. As such, you will work closely together with both our theorists as well as experimental physicists. You are expected to have a deep understanding of the fundamental physics underlying our Majorana experiments, as well as to be interested in the engineering aspects of super-/semiconductor device design.


  • PhD in theoretical condensed matter physics or similar;
  • Affinity and experience with numerical methods in condensed matter physics (tight-binding calculations, transport calculations, CAD/FEM);
  • Pragmatic mindset and interest in application of theoretical knowledge to device design;
  • Strong team mentality and enthusiasm to work in a diverse, international team;
  • Experience with Python is a prerequisite, experience with C and/or Java is a plus.

Preference will be given to candidates with experience in RF modelling.


This is a full-time position for 38 working hours per week (1 FTE). The position is offered for one year initially with the prospect of extension based on good performance. The salary is based on scale 10 with a maximum of € 4166,- gross per month on a fulltime basis.. 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 child care 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.
