Be part of the world's leading team in silicon quantum computing
Unique opportunity to join a new start-up in university setting
AU $10-116k + 17 per cent superannuation and leave loading
With $83 million of new commercial backing and in partnership with recently formed company Silicon
Quantum Computing Pty Ltd, we are seeking more than 20 researchers, engineers and technicians from
industry and academia to accelerate the commercialisation of our world-leading research in silicon quantum
SQC has a 5-year business plan to build a 10-qubit prototype quantum computer in silicon. The company
builds on more than 15 years of research in the development of a quantum computer in silicon at CQC2T.
The software developer / FPGA programmer will utilise experience in software development and FPGA design
to implement real-time data acquisition and feedback control systems. The successful candidate will join a
team working towards a prototype quantum processor assembled from donor-based spin qubits in silicon.
The team, headed by Prof Andrea Morello, has made several landmark demonstrations towards this goal over
the past five years, including the world's first single-atom spin qubit in silicon and single-qubit gate fidelities
amongst the highest for any solid-state qubit.
Utilising up-to-date knowledge of emerging software and technology in the field, the incumbent will make
strategic contributes to the project by developing code (for example, in Python) to acquire and process data
in real-time from a range of instruments monitoring the state of complex multi-qubit processor chips. They
will also be required to write software and implement appropriate user interfaces to handle a large number
instruments used to control the qubit and measurement electronics, in a scalable manner. The incumbent will
program FPGAs for real-time analysis of qubit output signals and feedback on qubit control in response to this
This is a three-year fixed term position providing a unique opportunity to work within a truly multidisciplinary
