Post-doctoral researcher

Cryogenic electronics for spin qubit control and readout

Ref. 2022_045

Project description

We are seeking an enthusiastic post-doctoral researcher to join our cryogenic electronics team at IBM Research Europe in Zurich.

The successful candidate will lead a project on control and readout electronics for spin qubits, including advanced custom cryogenic circuits and devices, especially mixed-signal circuits like DACs and ADCs. The work is part of the Swiss National Science Foundation NCCR Initiative SPIN. The candidate is expected to be familiar with high-frequency circuits and/or devices and highly motivated to develop new skills in quantum computing. The work will include cryogenic electrical characterization, developing optimal qubit control, and performing experiments on spin qubits to investigate the role of cryogenic electronics.

The successful candidate will be part of our Quantum and Information Technologies Team comprising world-leading experts in Quantum Computing, Spin Physics, Nanoscience and -technology, can benefit of leading-edge infrastructure and enjoy work with collaborative and creative groups in an international research environment at IBM's Zurich laboratory.


  • An excellent academic track record
  • A PhD degree in electrical engineering, physics, or related engineering disciplines
  • Very good communication and English language skills
  • Experience with cryogenic measurements and/or high-frequency circuits/devices


IBM is committed to diversity at the workplace. With us you will find an open, multicultural environment. Excellent flexible working arrangements enable all genders to strike the desired balance between their professional development and their personal lives.
