Postdoc - Quantum Sensing
Sandia National Lab
DescriptionThe Multiscale Fabrication Science & Technology Development Department, 5229, is seeking a Postdoctoral Appointee to perform experimental investigations of quantum and semiclassical devices supporting fundamental science projects in areas ranging from quantum information and sensing to radiation detection, characterization of novel superconducting materials, and neuromorphic computing.

On any given day, you may be called upon to:

Drive research in a defined area of interest as part of established, diverse teams of physicists, engineers, and material scientists.

Contribute significantly at the forefront of one of the following areas:

Applications in radiation detection. Microfabricated devices of interest include superconducting quantum bits (qubits), transition-edge-sensors, and single electron transistors. Cryogenic measurements will span a range of temperatures.

Applications in neuromorphic computing, particularly stochastic devices. Microfabricated devices of interest include tunnel diodes and single electron transistors. Room-temperature measurements will require high-speed data acquisition and statistical analysis.

Applications in novel materials, including superconductivity. Microfabricated devices of interest range from Hall bars to Josephson junctions.

We seek a self-motivated experimentalist to advance existing projects while advancing their career through peer-reviewed publications and presentations as well as internal and external interactions. While the primary technical responsibility will be device measurement, we encourage hands-on involvement with device modeling or device fabrication. A significant amount of coordination with other staff and technologists to meet the needs of the teams is required. In this highly collaborative environment excellent teaming and communications skills are a requirement for success.

Due to the nature of the work, the selected applicant must be able to work onsite 100% of the time.
RequirementsQUALIFICATIONS WE REQUIRE: PhD in physics, electrical engineering, or related field conferred within five (5) years prior to employment Ability to acquire and maintain a DOE L security clearance QUALIFICATIONS WE DESIRE: Presentations at technical conferences or meetings Experience performing original research, as demonstrated by a record of first-author publications in peer-reviewed journals Experience with: Cryogenic electrical transport measurements High-speed device measurement Devices used in radiation detection Superconductivity and superconducting devices Neuromorphic computing devices Devices used in quantum information science or quantum sensing Techniques used in superconducting or silicon device fabrication Device modeling using technology computer aided design (TCAD)
