Physicist

Description

 

The Advanced Concepts and Technologies group of one of our prestigious customers in Boston, MA is seeking Physicists to develop and lead experiments involving advanced quantum annealing and superconducting quantum circuits. The qualified candidates will become part of the Transformational Technology Business Area within the Advanced Concepts and Technologies (AC&T) organization. Transformational Technology is focused on developing state-of-the-art next generation superconducting electronics (SCE) and advanced computing technologies.

 

Responsibilities may include:

         Lead the cryogenic test and measurement of advanced quantum annealing circuits including superconducting flux qubits, couplers, and large-scale test beds

         Propose new superconducting circuit design concepts

         Superconducting circuit design

         Manage experiments in multiple dilution refrigerators

         Provide direction to test engineers and technicians

         Collaborate with top device theorists and quantum information scientists

         Collaborate with government-furnished foundry to optimize fabrication capabilities

         Develop procedures, methods, and tools for test

         Develop test software (e.g. Python based)

         Document test plans and procedures

         Visit team members at remote sites

         Analyze experimental data and provide recommendations

         Publish novel results
