We are seeking an experimental physicist or engineer to pursue world-leading research in semiconductor quantum systems with applications in quantum information science. The research will involve the characterization and operation of spin qubits in silicon and related materials, where the candidate will develop and utilize knowledge of quantum information processing, qubit control, semiconductor device physics, microwave electronics, and cryogenics to solve complex problems.

On any given day, you may be called on to:

  • Operate, characterize, and analyze semiconductor-based quantum devices and qubits at dilution refrigerator temperatures.

  • Design and execute experiments aimed at understanding specific physical phenomena relevant to semiconductor quantum dots and spin qubits.

  • Work as a team on large-scale projects as part of a fast-paced technically challenging research organization.

  • Conduct original research in quantum information science while also supporting internal research teams and milestones.

  • Communicate results in multiple venues.

Due to the nature of the work, the selected applicant must be able to work onsite.
