Superconducting qubit technology operates at the frequency range of several GHz, and qubit test circuits and quantum processors require highly sophisticated microwave engineering solutions. For this end, we are seeking for a competent microwave engineer to support our quantum group in modeling and designing the microwave solutions for the quantum computing applications in different levels. Your will contribute to the integrated circuit design of the qubit test circuits and quantum processor circuit layouts by ensuring that the on-chip microwave structures perform as intended avoiding nonidealities. You will also contribute to the design of the connectivity and packaging, addressing the microwave properties of the PCB designs and packaging solutions. Furthermore, you will support our scalable electronics team in microwave engineering aspects.
