Group 89—Quantum Information and Integrated Nanosystems Group
The Quantum Information and Integrated Nanosystems Group conducts quantum information science research from a shared foundation of innovative control-signal design, outstanding fabrication tools, and well-equipped measurement infrastructure. The group has a broad range of experimental and prototyping activities. The group's quantum information science activities include the development of superconducting and trapped-ion qubits and quantum sensing with nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers in diamond. In addition, the group has robust capabilities in classical superconducting circuits, complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) design and fabrication, and integrated photonics. These component technologies are used in synergy with quantum information science demonstrations, as well as in standalone applications that include beyond-CMOS circuit technologies, energy-starved sensors, compact optical communication and laser radar transceivers, and microwave photonic signal processing.

The group seeks a full time technical staff to join the team developing next generation RF and digital superconducting circuits. The successful candidate will be responsible for the design and measurement of SFQ digital circuits for quantum information device read-out and control, novel analog and digital circuit development and fabrication-yield test structures. The position will include all aspects of the work from conceiving and designing the circuits, participating in the realization of the experimental set up, performing the measurements, and analyzing the results.

PhD in Physics, Electrical Engineering or related field. Must have prior research experience with superconducting circuits, hands-on experience with low-noise cryogenic measurements, and strong data analysis skills.
