The Center for Quantum Devices and Microsoft Station Q Copenhagen, a medium-size research lab at the Niels Bohr institute (University of Copenhagen), with sponsorship from Microsoft Research, is currently investigating quantum devices based on nanofabricated semiconductors and superconductors. These devices are applied to future quantum information processing technologies, to be used as qubits and approaches to topological quantum computing.
We intend to hire up to three experienced electronics engineers, circuit designers, and FPGA programmers to help implement and control these quantum devices. Work will be in collaboration with a team of research physicists as well as post-docs and PhD candidates.
ABOUT THE JOB
The engineering team will work in collaboration with physicists, focusing on the following projects:
• RF and microwave circuit design
• RF and analog PCB layout in Altium
• Ultra low noise and low drift analog circuit design
• FPGA hdl programming
• System design
• Writing of design documents and test reports
• Hardware tests, troubleshooting and evaluation of measurement instruments
COMPETENCES & SKILLS
We are looking for:
Expertise in one or more of the following areas:
• RF/Microwave electronics at system, measurement and design level
• Low noise analog design
• FPGA design (Xilinx, Microsemi)
• Digital signal processing
Other things we are looking for:
• High personal drive, responsible attitude and ability to complete tasks on time
• Desire to work at the forefront of knowledge.
• Knowledge of just-invented electronics technology
• Work well with academics, industrial engineers, and students.
• Willingness to share knowledge and teach others.
• Proficiency in English
• M.Sc.E.E degree or higher
• Professionally you are one of the best within your field
The job offers a unique opportunity to work on the cutting edge of today’s technology, to enable tomorrow's quantum technologies. It is an opportunity to join an international team of scientists, engineers, computer scientists, and mathematicians who are trying to develop a new approach to computing.
