Position Description:    

Position Description: Applications are being accepted for a research associate in quantum information science and novel digital computing with superconducting circuits at the Laboratory for Physical Sciences (LPS), as a potential employee of the University of Maryland at College Park ( The position will focus on two projects: one will use custom superconducting resonators to study individual two-level defects for quantum computing; the second will use new fluxon circuits for fundamental studies on new reversible logic gates. Reversible gates are aimed at realizing drastic increases in energy efficiency in digital computing. The positions involve opportunities for regular interactions with colleagues and collaborators at the LPS and across the nation. Minimum Qualifications: • Ph.D. in Physics, Materials Science, or Electrical Engineering • One or more of the following areas of expertise: o RF design o Microfabrication o Data acquisition programming o RF measurements o Data analysis o Experiment simulation In addition to technical skills, the ideal candidate should have high self-motivation and be able to work collaboratively. Application Materials Required: Qualified applicants should submit the following to Dr. Kevin Osborn at • CV • List of publications • Contact information for at least two references. The University of Maryland is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity employer and particularly welcomes applications from women and members of minority groups.
