Job description and requirements
At QuTech we are actively looking for a Principal Investigator in semiconductor qubit theory and modelling to strengthen our quantum computing division. The ideal candidate has a strong background in the theory, modelling and benchmarking of qubits based on electron and hole spins in semiconductor quantum dots, has a demonstrated track record of collaborative work with experimental colleagues in a world-leading environment, and has a mission-driven mindset to focus on scaling toward fault-tolerant quantum computation. Additional Expertise or an interest in other solid-state qubit technologies will be considered positively.
QuTech is a mission-driven research institute founded by Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) and the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO). Together, we work on a radically new technology with world-changing potential. Our ambition is to develop scalable prototypes of a quantum computer and an intrinsically safe quantum internet.
We are creating the quantum future and we believe that quantum technology will be a game changer in many social and economic sectors – including health, agriculture, climate and safety. To achieve our ambitious goals, we bring together scientists, engineers and industry in an inspiring environment, with plenty of space for ambition, entrepreneurship and
Our research and engineering activities are conducted in three divisions: Quantum Computing, Quantum Internet and Qubit Research.
The candidate’s research program is expected to contribute to the general aim of the Quantum Computing Division (QCD) within QuTech. In the Quantum Computing Division we develop the hardware and software components and their integration in a full stack to build scalable prototypes of a quantum computer. We focus on solid-state qubits based on electron spins in silicon and hole spins in germanium qubits, and qubits based on superconducting quantum circuits. We develop control (cryo-)electronics, software and quantum algorithms, building the full quantum computing stack. Theory and experiments are strongly intertwined in all these efforts.
Conditions of employment
Junior candidates will be appointed on a tenure-track basis with the prospect of a tenured position. The contract is based on a fixed-term of 6 years and evaluation for permanent employment will occur after max 5 years. (Senior candidates will be appointed through a tailor made contract depending on their experience).
TU Delft/QuTech offers a customizable compensation package, an attractive pension scheme, holiday allowance, generous holidays, 13th month pay (paid as a pro-rata bonus in December), a discount for health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged.
For international applicants we offer the Coming to Delft Service and Partner Career Advice to assist you with your relocation. An International Children's Centre offers childcare and there is an international primary school.
Delft University of Technology is built on strong foundations. As creators of the world-famous Dutch waterworks and pioneers in biotech, TU Delft is a top international university combining science, engineering and design. It delivers world class results in education, research and innovation to address challenges in the areas of energy, climate, mobility, health and digital society.
