Job Description

Intel’s Technology Development Component Research (TD CR) delivers innovative device technologies and architectures to enable Intel’s roadmap. Our job is to invent, to demonstrate, and to develop game-changing and revolutionary technologies to enable Intel’s technology leadership.

We’re looking for a PhD level engineer to characterize quantum devices at low temperature, as well as perform simple computations of quantum circuits in dilution refrigerators.

Responsibilities are the following:

+ Primary study will be on spin qubits in silicon.

+ Hands-on expertise with device electrical measurements is required.

+ Experience with cryogenic and vacuum systems highly desired, in particular dilution refrigerators.

+ You will need to efficiently communicate and collaborate daily with other groups to determine and validate success criteria.

+ Independent design and follow-through of unique, enabling ideas is a key expectation from this role.

+ This position includes overseeing measurement equipment and collaboration with external research groups and vendor programs.

Behavioral traits we look for and required for this position:

+ Written and verbal communication skills

+ Keen experimental insight with an ability to devise and focus on key experiments
