Job Description

Electromechanical- Engineer

Contract 18+ Months, M-F 40 hours weekly
US Citizen with Active Secret Clearance

Note: Virtual/Work from home option may change based on Client decision in relation to COVID-19 status.

Description:
Applies electrical, electronic and mechanical principles to components and systems, including assembly, analysis, and documentation of results; construction of developmental assemblies, sub-assemblies and components; and quality testing. Supports and participates in the design, test, modification, fabrication and assembly of prototype electromechanical systems. Recommends various technology options or approaches for system, processes, facility or program improvements in terms of safety, performance, efficiency or costs. May develop, write and modify Integrated Logistics Support (ILS).

Background Needed:
The Quantum Information and Integrated Nanosystems Group conducts quantum information science research from a shared foundation of innovative control-signal design, outstanding fabrication tools, and well-equipped measurement laboratories. The group has a broad range of experimental and prototyping activities. The group's quantum information science activities include the development of superconducting and trapped-ion qubits and quantum sensing with nitrogen-vacancy (NV) centers in diamond. In addition, the group has robust capabilities in classical superconducting circuits, complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) design and fabrication, and integrated photonics. These component technologies are used in synergy with quantum information science demonstrations, as well as in standalone applications that include beyond-CMOS circuit technologies, energy-starved sensors, compact optical communication and laser radar transceivers, and microwave photonic signal processing.

Responsibilities include:
• Programming calibration routines
• Collecting and analyzing experimental data
• Operating a dilution refrigerator and microwave electronics

REQUIRED SKILLS
• Experience in measurement automation
• Experience in microwave electronics
• Python programing experience
• Demonstrated ability to plan and implement rigorous experiments (superconducting qubit measurements)
BS plus 5 years minimum relevant experience (required)
• Effective communication with technical staff and technicians within and outside of field of specialization

PREFERRED SKILLS
• Experience with quantum annealing
MS plus 3 years minimum relevant experience
