Job posting number: #7072883 (Ref:409131)

Posted: December 4, 2020

Application Deadline: Open Until Filled

Job Description

The Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM) is seeking a postdoctoral researcher for the Quantum Machine Learning (QML) program. The program aims to explore high-performance multimode piezomechanics integrated with superconducting qubits to achieve a hardware-efficient architecture for QML tasks. Both experimental and theoretical research will be conducted, with emphasis on nanomechanical and superconducting device design and fabrication, and low-temperature quantum experiments. The program will take advantage of CNM’s unique facilitates and capabilities; in particular, nanofabrication will be performed in CNM’s state-of-the-art cleanroom, and quantum experiments will make full use of the dilution refrigerator system and microwave electronics in CNM’s Quantum Matter and Device Lab.

The successful candidate will be part of a highly collaborative team and actively interact with staff scientists across groups as well as external collaborators. The candidate should have a strong background in experimental quantum physics and device nanofabrication. Programming skills at the hardware level to control microwave quantum measurements, and at the software level to perform quantum dynamics calculations are highly preferred. The postdoctoral position is funded and renewable up to three years.

Knowledge, Skills and Experience

Required:

  • Experience in device nanofabrication skills
  • Experience in microwave device characterization and measurement skills
  • Ability to effectively communicate both verbally and in writing with all levels of the organization

Preferred:

  • Experience with superconducting quantum experiments
  • Experience in nanomechanical and microwave device design and simulation
  • Knowledge and good understanding of quantum information science
