Do you have a passion for low temperature condensed matter physics that you would like to apply to the development of real world quantum technology? Do you want to put your enthusiasm for optimizing state-of-the-art electronic measurements to use for the quantum computing revolution?
Microsoft Station Q Purdue is looking for you! We are exploring and developing the next generation of quantum materials to build topologically protected quantum bits. Our research team combines molecular beam epitaxy growth of hybrid semiconductor/superconductor heterostructures with characterization of the physical properties of the materials we make. You can play a key role in the development of Microsoft’s ground-breaking approach to quantum computing.
At Microsoft you will be a key member of a world-wide team probing Majorana zero modes in new materials and devices. As a quantum electrical characterization researcher, you will closely work with our materials scientists to carry out low temperature electrical characterization measurements needed to improve our materials and devices for use as topological qubits. Your work will ensure that the development of new quantum materials will progress rapidly and that our characterization measurements will continuously improve to provide important feedback as we build the quantum technology of tomorrow.
