We are seeking an exceptional experimental physicist to support world leading research in semiconductor-based devices for quantum information science applications. Areas of specific interest include low-noise high-bandwidth electrical characterization, coherent control of single-atoms or quantum-dots, quantum information, cryogenics (T < 1 K), electron-spin or nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), cryogenic circuitry (e.g., amplification and sensors), advanced instrumentation control, and silicon nanofabrication. Opportunities exist for collaborating with internal and external scientists on a broad range of quantum information topics.
Our quantum information sciences program has a teaming, highly collaborative environment. On any given day, you may be called on to:
- Characterize and operate semiconductor quantum dot devices at dilution refrigerator temperatures.
- Work in a team environment to both design new device structures as well as solve problems in existing devices.
- Work with Sandia staff and managers to write internal and external proposals in new areas of quantum information science.
- Conduct original research in quantum information science while also supporting internal Sandia research teams.
- Work in a collaborative team environment on large-scale projects as part of a fast-paced technically challenging research organization.
Qualifications We Require
- PhD Or Master’s Degree in Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science, or related STEM discipline.
- Bachelor’s in Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science, or related STEM discipline.
- Experience in a research area related to quantum information science, particularly quantum computing.
- A history of publication of results in peer-reviewed journals and external presentations at appropriate scientific conferences.
- Ability to obtain and maintain a DOE Q clearance.
