Microsoft Quantum has assembled a talented and diverse international team to create the world’s first scalable quantum computing system. Microsoft’s verticalized approach involves exciting innovations at every level, from the qubit device and quantum information plane, to the quantum-classical interface and classical computer system, all the way up to the system software, applications and global services. Microsoft Quantum will change the world of computing and help solve some of humankind’s currently unsolvable problems.

Our research is focused on the development of new hybrid semiconductor-superconductor platforms to enable the application of Majorana bound states for topological quantum computing.

Material science and fabrication are the foundation and the enablers of qubit devices. We deal with complex stacks of different materials combined at the nanoscale and require state-of-the art metrology and in-depth morphological, structural and compositional analysis. Fabrication of qubit devices is an intricate, multi-step process pushing the boundaries of nanotechnology and nano-patterning techniques. You can play a key role in supporting the development of our ground-breaking approach to quantum computing by helping to realize quantum devices with the current state of the art quality and control.

We are looking for a dedicated experienced professional to operate our state-of-the art, scanning electron microscopes and a  dual beam Focused Ion Beam (FIB/SEM) equipment for transmission electron microscopy (TEM) sample preparation and nano-manipulation. The successful candidate should be able to understand the imaging and analysis needs of engineering and research teams and be able to translate it into successful sample preparation and observation. In addition, they should also be able to help researchers shorten their learning cycle in both nano fabrication processes and longer-term materials and concepts development. 


The following are the core responsibilities of the role:

  • Perform and optimize sample preparation for transmission electron microscopy using a focused ion beam (FIB)
  • Perform and optimize standard sample preparation ways such as ultramicrotomy and mechanical polishing
  • Develop and optimize protocols and recipes related to the characterization of nanostructures using a scanning electron microscope (SEM)
  • Deliver TEM ready samples to other characterization team members or external users
  • Maintain an excellent information log of all sample preparation activities and communicate meaningful information to microscopy users

Benefits and Perks

  • Industry leading healthcare
  • Savings and investments
  • Giving programs
  • Educational resources
  • Maternity and paternity leave
  • Opportunities to network and connect
  • Discounts on products and services
  • Generous time away
