Group 89--Summer Research Program Intern (Quantum Info & Nanosystems)

Date: Mar 24, 2024

Location: Lexington, MA, US

Company: MIT Lincoln Laboratory

The Quantum Information and Nanosystems Group at MIT Lincoln Laboratory conducts quantum information science research from a shared foundation of innovate research, state-of-the-art fabrication tools, and well-equipped measurement infrastructure. The group conducts a broad range of experimental and prototyping activities, including the development of superconducting, trapped-ion, and diamond nitrogen-vacancy center qubits.

Job Description


The Quantum Information and Integrated Nanosystems Group works with university researchers and students in the fields of quantum information and integrated circuit technologies.  Opportunities exist for student interns to either support existing research efforts or pursue related independent research projects that leverage the unique expertise and resources available in the group.  Current openings include projects such as quantum computing research (e.g., superconducting qubits, trapped-ion qubits, theory and simulation), quantum sensors (e.g., nitrogen vacancy and YIG magnetometers, strontium-ion optical clocks), superconducting electronics (e.g., single flux quantum and related technologies), integrated photonics, and materials development such as diamond engineering.


Most successful applicants are enrolled in a science or engineering college degree program and show good academic performance in relevant courses.  Past hands-on experience working in a related field (physics, optics, electrical engineering, computer science, or material science) is welcomed.  Applicants should be able to work collaboratively with others, to pursue independent research goals and to communicate well.


To help us match your skills to the right project, please submit a cover letter describing your professional interests and experience, and a resume highlighting relevant coursework and specific skills which could include programming (e.g., Python, C, HDL), use of technical software (e.g., MATLAB, Cadence, finite-element analysis software), data analysis, hardware development, experience with lab equipment (e.g., oscilloscopes, cryogenic apparatus) and computer automation, and/or experience with cleanroom microfabrication processes and material growth.

Selected candidate will be subject to a pre-employment background investigation and must be able to obtain and maintain a Secret level DoD security clearance.
