The Laboratory for Hybrid Quantum Systems at the Michigan State University (MSU) Department of Physics and Astronomy and Spartan Innovations are seeking qualified applicants for a postdoctoral research position to investigate quantum systems and technologies based on the coupling of superconducting qubits to high-frequency surface acoustic wave (SAW) devices. In addition to developing novel quantum devices based on these systems, the project is focused on advancing these systems to a higher level of technology readiness for quantum sensing and quantum memory applications (see below).
The postdoc will design and fabricate novel hybrid quantum systems coupling superconducting qubits to surface acoustic wave devices and perform measurements on these devices to characterize their properties and performance. These measurements will be conducted in the Laboratory for Hybrid Quantum Systems at MSU under the supervision of Prof. Johannes Pollanen.
Additionally, the postdoc will work with Prof. Pollanen and members of Spartan Innovations to advance the level of technology readiness of these systems. These efforts will require the postdoc to fulfill the following requirements:
Complete Regional I-Corps
Support a SBIR/STTR submission (1 minimum)
Submit invention disclosures (Target 2), for the supported technology by end of 1-year program
Participate in regular updates with Spartan Innovations stakeholders
Submission of a final report including 2 executive summaries: i) technology and ii) commercialization pathways
Develop a pitch deck
Attend select business training sessions
Equal Employment Opportunity Statement
All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, citizenship, disability or protected veteran status.
Doctorate -Physics or Electrical Engineering
A successful candidate will hold a Ph.D. in Physics or Electrical Engineering with a focus onexperimentalquantum information science with superconducting qubit, surface acoustic wave devices or optomechanical systems. Knowledge of nano-fabrication/cleanroom techniques, operation of dilution refrigerators, and measurements of superconducting qubits or optomechanical systems, are highly desirable. The ideal candidate will have proven ability to independently solve problems, design and conduct experiments, possess good communication and collaboration skills, and have a desire to advance quantum science into quantum technologies.
This is a one-year appointment with the potential for renewal for up to one additional one year appointment, contingent upon available funding and satisfactory performance on requirements listed above.
