JOB DESCRIPTION

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.

MITLL Quantum information and integrated nanosystems group seeks highly motivated researchers within the field of quantum information, particularly in magnetic sensoring and precision measurement. Experience in solid-state sensors, such as nitrogen vacancies in diamond, or in atomic sensors is necessary. Experience in diamond growth and NV diamond processing is ideal, but not required.

Requirements include a Ph.D. in Physics or related field, at least three years of experimental work on solid-state or atomic sensing, and ability to demonstrate effective programming skills. Expertise in MATLAB/Mathematica, Solidworks, and Comsol is desired.

Overview

Since 1951, when MIT Lincoln Laboratory was established to build the nation's first air defense system, the Laboratory has been applying advanced technology to solve problems critical to national security. Decade after decade, our people have envisioned incredible technology - and projects that start out as vital to national security often become just as vital to the everyday technology of the future. More than 700 patents have been granted for technologies developed by the Laboratory’s staff. And in the past two years, Lincoln Laboratory has been awarded eight R&D 100 Awards that recognize the year’s 100 most technologically significant innovations.

If you’d like to contribute to U.S. National security in an environment of incredible innovation, consider bringing your career to MIT Lincoln Laboratory.

As an Equal Opportunity Employer, we are committed to realizing our vision of diversity and inclusion in every aspect of our enterprise. Due to the unique nature
