Post Doc Quantum Computing
Imec is the world-leading research and innovation hub in nanoelectronics and digital technologies. The combination of our widely acclaimed leadership in microchip technology and profound software and ICT expertise is what makes us unique. By leveraging our world-class infrastructure and local and global ecosystem of partners across a multitude of industries, we create groundbreaking innovation in application domains such as healthcare, smart cities and mobility, logistics and manufacturing, and energy.
As a trusted partner for companies, start-ups and universities we bring together close to 3,500 brilliant minds from over 70 nationalities. Imec is headquartered in Leuven, Belgium and also has distributed R&D groups at a number of Flemish universities, in the Netherlands, Taiwan, USA, China, and offices in India and Japan. All of these particular traits make imec to be a top-class employer. To strengthen this position as a leading player in our field, we are looking for those passionate talents that make the difference! Currently we are looking for a motivated Post Doc Quantum Computing.
Quantum computing promises a strong enhancement of the computational power. Operating at cryogenic temperatures, Si quantum platforms benefit from well-established microelectronics fabrication techniques, enabling large scale qubit integration. Besides the fabrication of qbits, the realization of a large scale quantum computer requires to design very carefully the system that manipulates the qbits.
In this job, you will setup the system view of Cryogenic Electronics for Quantum Computer. You will guide our modelling and circuit design teams to realize an integrated system platform for a real Si quantum circuit. Besides experimentalists who will work the hardware characterization, you will interact closely with physicists, TCAD engineers, device and process integration engineers, as well as circuit designers. The ideal candidate has experience in system level architecture combined with deep device physics understanding.
Experience in quantum computing is encouraged.
- You have obtained a Master degree in Electronics Engineering or related fields, with a PhD in systems design and digital circuit.
- You have a background of electrical engineering or computer science or related fields. Good knowledge of device physics, technology, and Mixed circuit design is appreciated
- You are a communicative team player, but still you are able to work independently.
- You like taking initiative; you are persuasive and assertive, while keeping a constructive attitude.
- You show the flexibility to change between different projects according to changing priorities.
- Given the international character of imec, a fluent knowledge of English is necessary.
This postdoctoral position is funded by imec through the 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).
In exchange for your talent, passion and expertise, you will join a multicultural and high-tech company, with challenges there for the taking. Our flexible, progressive and informal working environment offers you a range of possibilities to take initiative and show responsibility. This is your opportunity to contribute to the technology that will determine the society of tomorrow. imec supports and guides you in this process; not only with words but with concrete actions. Through imec.academy, 'our corporate university', we are actively investing in the further development of all our employees to assure their technical and personal growth.
