head

Quantum computing software developer / FPGA programmer

  • Be part of the world's leading team in silicon quantum computing
  • Unique opportunity to join a new start-up in university setting
  • AU $10-116k + 17 per cent superannuation and leave loading
With $83 million of new commercial backing and in partnership with recently formed company Silicon Quantum Computing Pty Ltd, we are seeking more than 20 researchers, engineers and technicians from industry and academia to accelerate the commercialisation of our world-leading research in silicon quantum electronics.

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.

The software developer / FPGA programmer will utilise experience in software development and FPGA design to implement real-time data acquisition and feedback control systems. The successful candidate will join a team working towards a prototype quantum processor assembled from donor-based spin qubits in silicon. The team, headed by Prof Andrea Morello, has made several landmark demonstrations towards this goal over the past five years, including the world's first single-atom spin qubit in silicon and single-qubit gate fidelities amongst the highest for any solid-state qubit.

Utilising up-to-date knowledge of emerging software and technology in the field, the incumbent will make strategic contributes to the project by developing code (for example, in Python) to acquire and process data in real-time from a range of instruments monitoring the state of complex multi-qubit processor chips. They will also be required to write software and implement appropriate user interfaces to handle a large number instruments used to control the qubit and measurement electronics, in a scalable manner. The incumbent will program FPGAs for real-time analysis of qubit output signals and feedback on qubit control in response to this analysis.

This is a three-year fixed term position providing a unique opportunity to work within a truly multidisciplinary team of scientists and engineers working 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.

Applications: Please submit your resume and cover letter (addressing the selection criteria outlined in the Position Description) via our online application process.
