Research Technician / Electrical Engineering Research Group Katsaros

  • Full Time (40 h/w)
  • Klosterneuburg (Vienna), Austria
  • € 44,800* gross/year – Position limited for 3 years (extension t.b.d.)

Your Responsibilities

The Katsaros group studies spin qubits in two-dimensional Ge heterostructures and in parallel aims to understand whether protected qubits can be realized in hybrid semiconductor-superconductor systems. While our research is focused on the realization of different types of qubits, the group is very much interested in studying new fundamental physics emerging in semiconductor nanodevices. Currently we are looking for a Research Technician with focus Electrical Engineering in order to support our group with qubit experiments.

  • Develop radiofrequency (up to 20GHz) PCB boards, filters, and reflectometry techniques
  • Work with students on operating/synchronizing various RF instruments like high frequency lock-in amplifiers, arbitrary waveform generators, signal generators
  • Support the group with software development (python) for qubit experiments
  • Take part in group meetings and provide solutions to everyday challenges

Your Profile

  • Degree (M.Sc./PhD) in physics or electrical engineering with interest in physics
  • Experience with electronics (printed circuit board design) and RF equipment (directional couplers, circulators, high frequency lock-in amplifiers, arbitrary waveform generators, signal generators)
  • Extensive knowledge of programming (preferentially python)
  • Basic knowledge of vacuum technology and cryogenics of advantage
  • Interest in participating in the everyday life of a low temperature physics lab
  • Excellent command of English (working language)
  • Proactive personality with attention to detail and strong problem solving skills
  • Team player with the ability to work independently, learn quickly and multi-task
