Silicon Quantum Computing Pty Ltd. Kensington (Australien), 13.11.2017
Quantum computing experimental scientist/engineer (solid state devices)
- Be part of the world's leading team in silicon quantum computing
- Unique opportunity to join a new start-up in university setting
- AU $123–164k + 17 per cent superannuation and leave loading
SQC has a 5-year business plan to build a 10-qubit prototype quantum computer in silicon. The company builds on more than 15 years of research in the development of a quantum computer in silicon at CQC2T.
Andrew Dzurak is a Scientia Professor in the School of Electrical Engineering & Telecommunications. His research group studies silicon-based quantum computing, nanoelectronics and nanofabrication. His group has access to a dedicated cryo-electrical measurement laboratory with four dilution refrigerators, other supporting cryo-systems, and advanced high frequency and microwave electronics. The group also utilises experimental facilities at the Australian National Fabrication Facility, of which Prof Dzurak is Director. His research is supported via a range of funding sources including the US Army Research Office, the Australian Research Council, and, for this position, a research contract with Silicon Quantum Computing Pty Ltd. His research group comprises six postdoctoral fellows and 11 postgraduate and undergraduate research students. The Australian National Fabrication Facility is supported by a further 13 technical and administrative staff.
This physicist or engineer will join a team, led by Prof Dzurak, focused on the development of silicon-MOSbased quantum dot qubits that are compatible with wafer-scale CMOS manufacturing. Over the past four years the team has demonstrated the world's first two-qubit quantum logic gate in silicon and one-qubit gates with control fidelities that are compatible with fault-tolerant quantum computing.
The successful candidate will be an experienced physicist or engineer with experience in the experimental measurement and operation of solid-state qubits. They will be responsible for the quantum measurement of CMOS-compatible silicon multi-qubit (up to 10-qubit) devices that will be investigated within Prof Dzurak's group. They will be involved in all aspects of experimental systems design, cryo-electrical measurement, development of multi-qubit operational protocols, and advanced multi-qubit quantum logic demonstrations, including error detection and correction protocols.
This is a three-year fixed term position providing a unique opportunity to work within a multidisciplinary team of scientists and engineers at the forefront of global quantum computing internationally. This is one of more than 20 positions currently open for applications. View the full list of available roles on the CQC2T website.
