General Summary of Position:
The Quantum Engineering Science and Technology (QUEST) group at University
of Massachusetts, Lowell and the National Institute of Standards & Technology
(NIST) are looking for a motivated postdoctoral researcher to start as soon
as possible. The primary focus of the research will be multi-qubit reservoir
engineering, readout and control. This postdoctoral research opportunity will
involve developing designs, characterization and measurement protocols for
novel parametric circuit-QED architectures. The primary location of this work
will be at the NIST facility in Boulder, Colorado, which has been active in
developing superconducting qubits in all aspects of quantum information for
nearly two decades. Dr. Raymond Simmonds will be the primary advisor of the
work carried out at NIST.
The initial term of appointment is two years, with the possibility of an
extension for another two years contingent upon funding and successful
