Superconducting Quantum Materials and Systems (SQMS) Positions

The SQMS Center was established by the National Quantum Initiative Act as a hub in a new cooperative ecosystem built from national labs, universities, and leading companies. The mission of the SQMS Center is to build revolutionary new quantum science platforms that exploit superconducting radio frequency cavities and superconducting qubits for quantum information science (QIS) in the area of quantum computing, quantum sensing and quantum physics experiments. We have the ambitious goal of building the largest mK dilution fridge ever built to hist a quantum computer prototype of unprecedented performance. SQMS brings together more than 200 scientists, engineers, students and postdocs from twenty partner institutions spanning from national laboratories, academia and industry, which include Fermilab, Rigetti Computing, NASA Ames, Northwestern University, Goldman Sachs, Lockheed Martin and more. 

We have several job openings from quantum materials, devices, to RF integration of superconducting cavities and qubits, to algorithms and quantum physics and sensing. The successful candidates will work closely with quantum technology and computing researchers at Fermilab and in the larger community associated with the Superconducting Quantum Materials and Systems (SQMS) Center. 

As a member of the Center, the positions will involve working with a multidisciplinary team. The research will take advantage of world-class facilities and testbeds available both at Fermilab and with national and international Center partner institutions. It will build on platforms enabled by world leading coherence times of superconducting radiofrequency cavities to improve discovery potential.

We respect, understand, and value individual differences that embody the principles of diversity and abide by all environment, safety, and health regulations. We believe teams are the most successful when everyone may bring their whole selves to work. You would be joining a team with a deeply held commitment to developing and promoting an inclusive work environment.
