Multiple positions available

Exciting new job opportunities to join Microsoft’s Topological Quantum Computing Team at Microsoft Station Q Purdue. We are searching for epitaxy, processing, and cryogenic measurement engineers and postdoctoral researchers.

At Microsoft Station Q Purdue we are actively searching for a postdoctoral researcher to contribute to MBE growth of high spin-orbit coupled (SOC) arsenide/antimonide semiconductors epitaxially coupled to superconductors and magnetic insulators. These hybrid materials are believed to support Majorana fermions and offer a path to decoherence-free topological quantum computation. At Purdue we have constructed a new, custom-designed MBE system with in-situ superconductor deposition capabilities and have a full complement of device fabrication and low temperature measurement capabilities. A postdoc joining this effort will have an exciting opportunity to contribute to a dynamic new field of research and to collaborate with leading researchers from around the world. A strong background in MBE growth is required and experience with semiconductor device fabrication and electrical characterization is also desirable.

Post-doc positions available in:

  • MBE Growth
  • Device Fabrication
  • Low Temperature Transport Characterization (job description here)

Contracted engineer positions available in:

  • Low Temperature Transport Characterization (job description for Quantum Electrical Characterization Engineer position here)
