Researcher on Multi-physics simulations of qubit devices
Employer: imec
Location: Leuven, Belgium
Employment Start Date: Flexible/to be discussed

Organization Description:

imec is an R&D hub for nano- and digital technologies. We believe in the combination of extremely talented people and a world-class infrastructure to enable a prosperous and sustainable future for all.

Job Description:

The quantum device team at IMEC works on qubit characterization leveraging its world-class technological platform for integration of next-generation compute and memory devices. The activities of the team cover the electrical characterization, design and simulation of spin and superconducting qubit devices in close collaboration with integration engineers, thus covering all aspects of qubit technology. In the framework of an expansion of the activities of the quantum computing program, we are seeking a talented researcher to reinforce the activities related to qubit design and simulation. Together with your colleagues working on electrical characterization and device integration, your main responsibilities will be to develop a multiphysics-simulation platform targeting spin and superconducting qubit structures.  

In particular, you will be involved in: 

  • Modelling of Si-spin qubit devices taking into account device electrostatics, stress, micro-magnetics, band-structure and spin dynamics 
  • RF and circuit modelling of superconducting qubit devices, qubit dynamics 
  • Contribute on the device design process.
