Quantum Control Physicist (remote-ish)

Permanent employee, Full-time · Remote

What we do
The capabilities of current generation quantum devices are still quite underwhelming. They are slow and error-prone; and scientists spend an enormous amount of time just optimizing their setups. We are gathering the brightest minds to solve this! Join us on our journey to become the world’s leading scientific machine learning company, starting with the control of quantum technology devices. We work remotely, and meet physically once a month for planning, brainstorming and shared meals.
Why we need you
As we build the tools to help scientists better calibrate their quantum devices, we need a team of physicists that both understand the pains of experimentalists (spending days tuning up their system before every data-taking) and the advantage that software & automation services can bring to this process. It is crucial that you feel comfortable in speaking (and translating between) the languages spoken by theoretical physicists and experimentalists/engineers.
Your profile
  • Strong background in Control of Quantum Systems (PhD or MSc with equivalent experience) is required
  • Strong background in Semiconductor Spin or Ion Trap based quantum computing is required
  • Experimental Physics experience or working closely with experimental collaborators or experience with implementing algorithms on hardware is strongly preferred
  • You must enjoy scientific programming and building software systems
  • You must already reside or be willing to relocate near EU time-zones (CET±1)
What we need for your application
Your CV is a good start. But, what we’d really like to see is that you have a proven track record of projects and work in the relevant field. So if you can send us a link to your GitHub, recent projects or real-world examples of what you have done so far, that is what really interests us. Before a possible interview, please think about the following:
  • What is something you accomplished which you are really proud of?
  • What technological developments are you excited about?
  • What are the things that you have taught yourself?
  • What is something you would like to learn or improve in the near future?
