In our Process Technology (PT) unit we are currently looking for a (m/f) Senior Digital Circuit Engineer.

Job Description:

Quantum computing promises a strong enhancement of the computational power. 
Operating at cryogenic temperatures, Si quantum platforms benefit from well-established microelectronics fabrication techniques, enabling large scale qubit integration. Besides the fabrication of qbits, the realization of a large scale quantum computer requires to design very carefully the system that manipulates the qbits.

  • In this job, you will setup the system view of Cryogenic Electronics for Quantum Computer.
  • You will guide our modelling and circuit design teams to realize an integrated system platform for a real Si quantum circuit.
  • Besides experimentalists who will work the hardware characterization, you will interact closely with physicists, TCAD engineers, device and process integration engineers, as well as circuit designers. The ideal candidate has experience in system level architecture combined with deep device physics understanding.
  • Experience in quantum computing is encouraged.


  • You have obtained a Master degree in Electronics Engineering or related fields, with a PhD in systems design and digital circuit.
  • You have a background of electrical engineering or computer science or related fields. Good knowledge of device physics, technology, and Mixed circuit design is appreciated
  • You are a communicative team player, but still you are able to work independently.
  • You like taking initiative; you are persuasive and assertive, while keeping a constructive attitude.
  • You show the flexibility to change between different projects according to changing priorities.
