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.
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.
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:
- 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
- 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.
- Experience with low-temperature mechanical design
- Understanding of the workings of cryogenic systems
- Quantum computing and quantum information technology
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.
