Postdoctoral Research Associate in Experimental Quantum Information Science
University of Massachusetts Lowell
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 performance.
Contact: Prof. Archana Kamal, firstname.lastname@example.org; Dr. Raymond W. Simmonds, email@example.com for inquiries related to the position.
Minimum Qualifications (Required):
PhD in Physics, Engineering, or Computer Sciences obtained before the start date of the position
Experience with microfabrication of superconducting circuits and circuit- QED architectures
Experience with dispersive readout, basic theoretical modelling, data analysis and fitting, along with programming microwave equipment is highly encouraged
Special Instructions to Applicants:
Only current UML Employees within the Grants & Contracts (MTA/GRACE) bargaining unit will be considered during the first 10 business days of the posting. All other candidates will be considered after that period.
Initial review of applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. For full consideration completed applications, including all letters of recommendations should be received by February 28, 2022.
