Tech Staff – Superconducting Technology Interface Lead – MIT Lincoln Laboratory – Lexington, MA

Requisition ID:

The Quantum information and Integrated Nanosystems Group conducts quantum information science research from a shared foundation of innovative control signal design, outstanding fabrication tools and well-equipped measurement infrastructure. The group has a broad range of experimental and prototyping activities. The group’s quantum information science activities include development of superconducting and trapped-ion qubits and quantum sensing with NV-centers in diamond.

In addition the group has robust capabilities in classical superconducting circuits, CMOS design and fabrication, and integrated photonics. These component technologies are used in synergy with quantum information science demonstrations as well as in stand-alone applications that include beyond CMOS circuit technologies, energy starved sensors, compact optical communication and laser radar transceivers, and microwave photonic signal processing.

Will be responsible for developing and leading the execution of technical priorities that coordinate designers, fabrication engineers and testing experts across a portfolio of superconducting electronics programs. These programs involve the development of classical superconducting electronics, quantum technology and test infrastructure. The candidate must understand and communicate the design/fabrication/test tasks and risks within a large team that includes both Laboratory personnel and external partners.

The candidate will work with the individual technical program managers on each project in the portfolio and with external partners to set technical priorities that are coordinated across multiple programs leveraging overlapping resources. This requires a detailed understanding of the technologies in each program, in order to understand the risks, constraints and opportunities during both the program development and program execution phases. Additionally, the candidate will work with subject matter experts at the Laboratory in each project to identify the best technology development and execution plans, based on the associated technical risks and other constraints. Once these plans are developed, the candidate will assist in executing these plans and will maintain the broad knowledge across programs to coordinate modifications to the plan or assess when new technical approaches must be considered. Finally, the candidate will be the technical expert in a portion of the work or a related research area in order to assist in developing ideas and plans for new research directions.

PhD in physics, electrical engineering, computer theory, or quantum computing with 5 years experience in engineering or technology development. Must have a minimum of 5 years experience in program/portfolio management in a Research and Development environment.

Demonstrated capabilities in presenting ideas written and orally required.

Ability to obtain and maintain a security clearance required.
