Quantum Sensor Physicist

Date: Jun 3, 2021

Location: Lexington, MA, US

Company: MIT Lincoln Laboratory

The Advanced Technology Division performs research and development on component and subsystem-level technologies which can enable new approaches to DoD systems, and which advance the state-of-the-art for U.S. industry. Our expertise covers a wide front including biology, chemistry, computer science, device physics, integrated circuit design and fabrication, lithography, materials, nanofabrication, optics, optoelectronics, packaging, photonics, quantum information systems, and RF technology. We strive to understand DoD systems and develop technologies "which will make a difference."

 

The Quantum Information and Integrated Nanosystems Group is seeking highly motivated, quantum physicist/engineer to join a team in designing and building next-generation quantum sensors. Leading-edge sensor development harnesses unique quantum capabilities across a range of technologies from nitrogen vacancies in diamond to trapped ions and superconducting circuits.  Candidate should be familiar with quantum theory and experiment. Experience with sensor design, experimental control, is desirable. 

 

Candidates should be interested in continuing to learn and in expanding their abilities and skills while undertaking challenging problems. Highly proficient laboratory and analytical skills, excellent communication and presentation experience, and the ability to work individually and collaboratively as part of a team are all essential.

 

Required:

  • 5+ years of experience with atomic-molecular optics or quantum defect centers
  • Ability to obtain a security clearance
  • Minimum Ph.D. degree

 

Additional Skills:

  • Quantum engineering experience
  • Fielding quantum system
  • Developing measurement protocols
  • Modeling spin systems
  • Ability to obtain a security clearance
