Job description

Quantum computing promises a strong enhancement of the computational power.

Operating at cryogenic temperatures, Si quantum platforms benefit from well-established microelectronics fabrication techniques, enabling large scale qubit integration. Besides the fabrication of qbits, the realization of a large scale quantum computer requires to design very carefully the system that manipulates the qbits.

In this job, you will setup the system view of Cryogenic Electronics for Quantum Computer.

You will guide our modelling and circuit design teams to realize an integrated system platform for a real Si quantum circuit.

Besides experimentalists who will work the hardware characterization, you will interact closely with physicists, TCAD engineers, device and process integration engineers, as well as circuit designers. The ideal candidate has experience in system level architecture combined with deep device physics understanding.

Experience in quantum computing is encouraged.
