Are you looking for a challenging project, at the boundary between science and engineering? Do you have experience in designing Quantum Devices? TNO is active on that front and is looking to expand its team of specialists.

What will be your role?

You will be working in the Quantum Technology department of TNO on projects we perform directly for clients or in close collaboration with the TU Delft in the QuTech research center for quantum computing and quantum internet. QuTech addresses scientific challenges as well as engineering issues in a joint center of know-how with industrial partners.
TNO’s mission is to apply scientific knowledge and technology into higher Technology Readiness Level applications. We do this on the topic of Quantum Technology as well, designing and building quantum devices, as well as systems that leverage on their properties (for application in communication, computing, or sensing). The overall process of designing, fabricating, and testing devices is critical to our success and is a complex process requiring the integration of several experts like material scientists, nanofabrication experts, microwave engineers and characterization specialists. You will play an active role integrating these expertise and your own experience in designing and testing devices to advance the capabilities and scalability of our chips. You will do this principally on spin qubit devices in semiconductors.
You will be working in close collaboration with academic personnel from the TU Delft and other research groups, but also with dedicated TNO experts. Robustness and improvements in production yield will be your primary objectives before metrics like qubit number or coherence time.

  • Fabricate nano-electronic devices for solid-state quantum computing applications.
  • Monitor, control, and qualify fabrication processes, troubleshoot fabrication issues on demand.

  • Understanding of nanofabrication engineering principles.
  • Experience with quantum dot device fabrication or maintenance of the fabrication facilities is considered an advantage.

What you’ll get in return

Challenging and varied work with a real impact. And plenty of opportunities as, at TNO, you are in charge of shaping your career. We offer a gross monthly salary between € 3,000 and € 3,700 (based on your knowledge and experience), 8% holiday pay, a 13th month bonus of 8.33% and a flex budget (5.58% + € 180).
