About the job
The Google hardware team focuses on laying the technological, scientific, and engineering foundations for making quantum computing a reality. Our architectures are based on superconducting cubits that are cooled near absolute zero and are controlled by high-speed signals. Our devices are highly configurable, and our hardware performance is only as good as the control system.
As a Quantum Calibration Research Scientist, you will have the opportunity to contribute to the calibration and metrological techniques that are used to build and control the next generation of quantum computers. Our effort is based on the successful development of scalable quantum control and benchmarking techniques, signal delivery hardware, and quantum devices. You will work with research scientists and engineers to address these exciting challenges, which lie at the intersection of physical insight, metrology, software engineering, and hardware engineering.
Google Research is building the next generation of intelligent systems for all Google products. To achieve this, we’re working on projects that utilize the latest computer science techniques developed by skilled software engineers and research scientists. Google Research teams collaborate closely with other teams across Google, maintaining the flexibility and versatility required to adapt new projects and foci that meet the demands of the world’s fast-paced business needs.
Focus on developing and improving characterization tools and calibration processes towards stable, high-fidelity performance on large-scale quantum processors.
Deploy, monitor, and improve automated calibrations to achieve and high-fidelity quantum gates, readout, and algorithm performance.
Assist with the design and development of next-generation software control systems to improve scalability and speed.
Develop and deploy metrology tools to characterize component and system performance of quantum processors at scale.
Work in a collaborative environment to deploy classical control systems and assist in the characterization of new hardware developments.
