General Summary of Position:

Quantum Engineering Science and Technology (QUEST) group at University of Massachusetts, Lowell and the National Institute of Standards & Technology are looking for a motivated postdoctoral researcher to start as soon as possible. Superconducting circuits represent a very promising platform for actualizing quantum information processors. This postdoctoral research opportunity will involve design, fabrication and characterization of superconducting qubit systems. The primary focus of the research will be stabilizing entangled quantum states of multiple superconducting qubits.

The primary location of this work will be at the NIST facility in Boulder, Colorado. NIST has been active in developing superconducting qubits in all aspects of quantum information for over a decade. Dr. Raymond Simmonds will be the primary advisor of the work carried out at NIST.

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 for 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. However, the position may close when an adequate number of qualified applications are received.   

This position is available to both domestic and international candidates. This is a two-year position with the possibility of an extension for another two years contingent upon funding and successful performance.

Please include a detailed CV, cover letter, list of publications, and brief statement of research interests. Names and contact information for three references will be required at the time of application. References will be contacted for a letter of reference immediately after application submission. References will be required to upload recommendation letters to our on-line portal; neither emailed nor hard-copy letters will be accepted. *At least two letters of reference are required.
