Description

Quantum Applied Physicist-CIPHER

Submit Resume ID: 497152 Type: Researchers Location: Atlanta, GA Categories: Quantum Computing, Sensors/Optics

Project/Unit Description

The Quantum Systems (QS) Division of the Georgia Tech Research Institute's Cybersecurity, Information Protection, and Hardware Evaluation Research (CIPHER) Lab is seeking self-motivated individuals with experience in quantum sensor or computing research. The division is composed of a large team of scientists and engineers from disciplines including physics, chemistry, electrical engineering, optical science, mechanical engineering, mathematics, and chemical engineering. QS employees perform fundamental research exploring next-generation technologies based on exotic physical phenomena, working to prove that devices based on these technologies can provide real-world solutions relevant to sponsors.

Our research portfolio includes funded programs in trapped-ion quantum computing, simulation, and sensing, quantum magnetometry and electrometry, molecular data storage technology, mass spectrometry, and chemical sensing. Support is also available for development of projects outside of existing areas of research. QS researchers frequently contribute to projects in other GTRI labs and CIPHER divisions involving research in other topics including artificial intelligence and machine learning, communications, biophysics, security, and optics.

The candidate will be expected to work independently and effectively in a highly collaborative, multi-disciplinary team environment. Affiliated with the Georgia Institute of Technology and located on its main campus in Atlanta Georgia, GTRI offers a unique opportunity to conduct applied research in a university setting. Employees in this position are encouraged to publish academic literature and pursue collaborations with academic, government, and industry partners.

Job Purpose

An applied physicist leverages knowledge and skills from the fields of physics, chemistry, material science, and mathematics to contributes to the technical leadership in research projects in the analysis, design, and development of innovative systems, sensors, or may focus on developing/applying new materials for energy storage systems and sensors. They design and conduct experiments and/or simulations to ascertain the physical properties and behaviors of systems. Experiments conducted may involve the measurement, characterization, and testing of equipment and environmental phenomenology using specialized tools. Modeling and simulation tools developed are based on fundamental physical principles and are used to inform the design of systems and sensors, to evaluate their theoretical performance, and to develop algorithms for command, control, and data exploitation. They perform fundamental experimental or theoretical work in areas such as optical systems, EO/IR & RF M&S and analysis, photonics and new materials. For example: development of energy systems utilizing novel nanomaterials to create energy producing, harvesting, and storage systems. An applied physicist contributes to the application of new materials to the healthcare, entertainment, and security areas.

Key Responsibilities
  • Perform basic tests, experiments, calculations, and/or simulations to determine physical parameters/properties and behaviors of materials and systems and conduct basic data analysis on the results of measurements and/or simulations
  • Perform literature surveys on research topics
  • Generate documentation of experiments and results
  • Additional Responsibilities
  • Contribute to existing experimental quantum sensor and simulation/computing research programs,
  • Author technical reports and publications,
