Solid-state qubits made from silicon or silicon-germanium quantum dots are promising candidates to realize large-scale quantum computers, which can solve problems that are far beyond the reach of classical computers. To overcome the inherent uncertainty of quantum operations even at mK temperatures, fault tolerant designs have been proposed where logical qubits are built from multiple physical qubits. Because each physical qubit requires multiple lines for control and read-out of the spin states, the integration of classical CMOS circuits and qubits at cryogenic temperatures is one of the key challenges to mitigate wiring constraints and ensure signal integrity to enable up-scaling of quantum computers. A good understanding of the trade-offs of power, performance, reliability, and variability at cryogenic temperatures is necessary to ensure stable operation in cryogenic environments. Furthermore, it has been shown that interface-disorder effects and charge noise are of fundamental importance for the decoherence times of spin qubits, creating additional interest in a deep understanding of charge trapping phenomena at ultra-low temperatures and its coupling to spin-states.
We offer you the opportunity to join one of the world’s premier research centers in nanotechnology at its headquarters in Leuven, Belgium. With your talent, passion and expertise, you’ll become part of a team that makes the impossible possible. Together, we shape the technology that will determine the society of tomorrow.
We are committed to being an inclusive employer and proud of our open, multicultural, and informal working environment with ample possibilities to take initiative and show responsibility. We commit to supporting and guiding you in this process; not only with words but also with tangible actions. Through imec.academy, 'our corporate university', we actively invest in your development to further your technical and personal growth.
We are aware that your valuable contribution makes imec a top player in its field. Your energy and commitment are therefore appreciated by means of a competitive salary with many fringe benefits.
This postdoctoral position is funded by imec through KU Leuven. Because of the specific financing statute which targets international mobility for postdocs, only candidates who did not stay or work/study in Belgium for more than 24 months in the past 3 years can be considered for the position (short stays such as holiday, participation in conferences, etc. are not taken into account).
