Position Description:    
In this role you will perform research for the Dissipation-aided Microwave-Optical Entanglement program. The program aims to develop a high-frequency superconducting piezo-optomechanical system combined with dissipation engineering technique to generate highly entangled microwave-optical photons.

The research work primarily focuses on experiments, with emphasis on device design, nanofabrication, and low-temperature quantum experiments. The research is performed in CNM, taking advantage of the unique facilitates and capabilities, including the state-of-the-art cleanroom for nanofabrication, the Piezo-optomechanical Spectrometer in the Quantum Optomechanics Lab for device characterization, and the dilution refrigerator system in the Quantum Matter and Device Lab for cryogenic measurement.

Is a part of a highly collaborative team and actively interacts with staff scientists across groups as well as external collaborators.

Position Requirements

Considerable: • A recent or soon-to-be-expected Ph.D. degree from related areas such as Physics, Applied Physics, Electrical Engineering, etc., is required. • Considerable device nanofabrication skills are required. • Considerable microwave and optical device characterization and measurement skills are required. • Considerable skills in communication, collaboration, and presentation are required.


• Experience with superconducting and cryogenic quantum experiments is highly preferred. • Nanomechanical and microwave device design and simulation skills are highly preferred.


• Knowledge and good understanding of quantum information science are desired. - The candidate should have a strong background in experimental quantum physics and device nanofabrication. Programming skills to control microwave and optical measurements are highly preferred.
