Postdoctoral Research Associate Near-Field Infrared Nanospectroscopy

BNL Job ID 2543, Date posted 03/10/2021
The holder of this position will contribute to the development, commissioning, and operation of AFM-based near-field infrared (NFIR) nanospectroscopy instruments, operating both at room and cryogenic temperatures, and capable of spanning a broad spectral range using NSLS-II as a high-brightness synchrotron infrared source. These instruments are intended to serve the quantum materials and QIS communities. The position project is a direct collaboration with NFIR experts at Stony Brook University and Columbia University.

Operations Manager

BNL Job ID 2550, Date posted 02/26/2021
Candidate will report to the Associate Laboratory Director (ALD) for the Energy and Photon Science (EPS) Directorate and serve as the Operations Manager for the newly funded Co-design Center for Quantum Advantage (C2QA). The Operations Manager for C2QA will be responsible for overseeing the day-to-day management support functions, ensuring efficient and effective operations that are essential to the C2QA success. Working with BNL and participating universities, you will develop and implement processes to enhance coordination and operational efficiency. You will work closely with the Thrust Leaders to coordinate preparation of recurring strategy and performance reports.

Postdoc within the C2QA QISE Materials Development Team

John Hopkins University
The Co-design Center for Quantum Advantage (C2QA) is a newly funded, 5-year, $115 million dollar quantum information science and engineering (QISE) effort led by Brookhaven National Laboratory. The McQueen laboratory is part of the C2QA new materials team, and is looking for a postdoctoral scholar to carry out research projects focusing on the development of new materials for QISE applications. The successful candidate will have significant experience in the growth of crystalline materials, and the characterization of physical properties, particularly those relevant to QISE. Experience with Density Functional Theory (DFT) and related computational techniques, particularly to guide materials selection and design, is favorable.

Research Scientist - Quantum Technologies

SUNY Polytechnic Institute
Job responsibilities include, but are not limited to: Establish familiarity with 300mm wafer-scale processing technologies and wafer fab operational software (SiView) to create and update process flows, in concert with wafer fab process engineers and other researchers in 300mm Process Technology group. Conduct research on superconducting materials and interfaces deposited at 300mm wafer scale, characterize them at room temperature with inline metrology equipment and applicable offline characterization techniques available on site (sputter-profiling XPS, TEM, cross-sectional SEM, SIMS), and partner with fab team to identify fruitful avenues for performance improvement, characterize such improvements, establish design rules, and develop process design kits for use by NY CREATES partners (research labs, academia, companies).
