Research engineer for developing quantum processor packaging

Chalmers University of Technology

Sweden

October 7, 2022

Description

We are looking for a research engineer to strengthen our team in the packaging investigations in a Wallenberg Foundation funded project (WALP). We offer a highly exciting and stimulating research environment with close collaboration with an industry partner and the possibility to see research immediately turn into commercial value. If successful, it will be possible to continue your work with SCALINQ or Chalmers after the finished project.

Information about the research team The Quantum Technology lab at the Department of Microtechnology and Nanoscience at Chalmers University of Technology is pioneering full stack quantum computing. In our research team, we are working on all aspects of building a complete quantum computer (QC). This includes everything from the software for programming the QC to the quantum processing unit (QPU). A vital part of the QC is the package that hosts the QPU. Several challenges that border between research and engineering need to be addressed to successfully deploy a working QC. Research on this topic has recently generated the spin-off company SCALINQ from our group. SCALINQ focuses primarily on QPU packaging. Major responsibilities As a research engineer, you will conduct research and development in the industrial WALP project in close collaboration with SCALINQ and other researchers at Chalmers. We expect you to drive project work packages and report progress to the other team members. Your research and development will generate IP in the form of patentable solutions and publications. A key task is also technical validation in the form of measurements in cryostats and using microwave techniques.

Qualifications In order to qualify for the position, you need a MSc or PhD in engineering physics or electrical engineering with focus on microwave engineering and/or quantum physics. You are motivated for a career in quantum technology, in academia or at an institute or company. You have a collaborative attitude and an interest in working both independently and in a team environment, sharing best practices and assuming responsibility. You pay attention to detail and enjoy solving complex problems. The position requires verbal and written communication skills in English.

The following experiences are meriting: Microwave engineering - High-frequency simulation for example in ANSYS or Comsol - Measurements using e.g. VNA and signal generators - Knowledge in ultra-high shielding of microwaves, infrared and magnetic fields - Microwave package design, e.g. BGA, wirebonding and PCB design

Mechanical design for cryogenic and/or microwave applications - Some industry standard tools such as Inventor or SolidWorks.

Low-temperature design - Experience with low-temperature mechanical design - Understanding of the workings of cryogenic systems

Quantum Technology - Quantum computing and quantum information technology - Superconductivity

Contract terms This position is a full-time temporary employment for two years, with the possibility to get a permanent position after that. We offer Chalmers offers a cultivating and inspiring working environment in the coastal city of Gothenburg. Read more about working at Chalmers and our benefits for employees.

Chalmers aims to actively improve our gender balance. We work broadly with equality projects, for example the GENIE Initiative on gender equality for excellence. Equality and diversity are substantial foundations in all activities at Chalmers.

Application procedure The application should be marked with Ref 20220437 and written in English. The application should be sent electronically and be attached as pdf-files, as below:

CV: (Please name the document as: CV, Surname, Ref. number) including: • CV, include complete list of publications • Two references that we can contact.

Personal letter: (Please name the document as: Personal letter, Family name, Ref. number) 1-3 pages where you: • Introduce yourself • Describe your previous research fields and main research results • Describe your future goals and career focus

Other documents: • Attested copies of completed education, grades and other certificates.

Please use the button at the foot of the page to reach the application form. The files may be compressed (zipped).

Application deadline: October 7, 2022. Interviews will be conducted on a continuous basis until the position is filled. Therefore, please submit your application prior to the application deadline.
