Join our team in creating the new quantum internet.
QphoX is looking to expand our R&D team with a nanofabrication scientist. As a member of our team, you will help develop future generations of transduction devices geared towards taking their performance to the next level. You will be trained to become part of the world's leading group in developing microwave to optical transducers, working with the most advanced techniques and state-of-the-art fabrication tools.

Nanofabrication scientist

About us:

QphoX is a recently established (February 2021) spin-off company from TU Delft, developing and building quantum technology that will allow quantum computers to network together. We are a very dynamic and highly motivated growing team, with a very positive and exciting work environment. At QphoX we strive to be an inclusive place where a diverse mix of talented people want to come, to learn, to live their passion and do their best work.

We are dedicated to promoting equality, creating a safe environment for everyone, and believe deeply in diversity of race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, national origin, age, socioeconomic background and all the other fascinating characteristics that make us different. We truly think diversity is a strength and working in a diverse environment, and being exposed to a variety of perspectives makes us stronger as a team and better human beings.

Benefits and other perks of working with us

Competitive salary
Employment stock ownership plan
Generous leave policy - 25 days on a full-time basis
Opportunities to network and connect

You will be involved in:

- Developing new processes to improve the fabrication workflow of the devices.
- Investigate new materials and fabrication methods to improve device metrics, yield and reproducibility over time.
- Helping to improve high standard protocols for the fabrication of the transducers.
- Taking care of physical, chemical and opto-electrical characterization of the materials and the devices.
- Manage projects and communicate the results of the different experiments you will run.
- Working in a diverse and multi-disciplinary team of engineers and scientists.
- Learning about photonics and MEMS.

You are suitable for this role if you have or are:

- Experience working in a laboratory/cleanroom or with nanofabrication tools.
- Background in nanoscience or material sciences or chemistry or applied sciences.
- Ability to work collaboratively with other engineers, scientists and technicians with a wide range of expertise.
- Good organizational and planning skills to achieve set goals on time.
- Ability to think ahead and focus on improvement.
- No experience in or knowledge of quantum physics is required.

Supplementary skills set:

- Programming basics
- Experience with photonics fabrication
- Experience in industry

Our Ideal Candidate:

Our ideal candidate would have a taste for experimentation within a cleanroom. They would be self-motivated and independent on their projects and have a sense of their responsibilities. They would be excited to work at the intersection between design of experiment, fabrication, and measurement. Teamwork is an essential value of our company, hence fitting into the team is crucial. Finally, they would have to feel positive working in fast-paced learning environment. We strongly encourage people of any underrepresented group to apply as we are committed to diversity and work to build an inclusive environment where all people, regardless of gender, race, religion, or background, can thrive.
