Senior FPGA-DSP Engineer
Job no: 502563
Work type: Full-time
Location: Sydney, NSW
Categories: Information Technology
An exciting opportunity exists for an experienced FPGA/DSP engineer to work with our world leading atom-based quantum computing team. This position is funded by Silicon Quantum Computing Pty Limited (SQC), an Australian Research and Development company with a focused goal of making quantum computers a reality. SQC is co-located at UNSW Sydney with the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology (CQC2T or Centre), one of Australia’s elite research organisations conducting world-leading research in atomic electronics and quantum computing with the specific aim of building a quantum computer based on atom-qubits in silicon.
SQC is expanding and seeking a Senior FPGA/DSP Engineer, with a strong background in digital signal processing and FGPA design to optimize the hardware stack that interfaces our low noise, cryogenic measurement instrumentation. This will include the ongoing development, and implementation of data reduction, real-time data analysis and the opportunity to develop scalable measurement instrumentation. Ultimately this role will work closely with a senior hardware engineer to interface with the high-fidelity control and measurement of multi-qubit devices at cryogenic temperatures.
This is a prestigious position within a dynamic and highly collaborative research and development environment. The successful applicant will join the world-leading team led by Professor Michelle Simmons, who has an international reputation for pioneering radical new atomic scale fabrication technology. The group is poised to scale to 10-qubit integrated circuit prototype by 2023 and 100-qubit architectures within the decade.
About the role
- $98K - $123K plus 17% superannuation and annual leave loading
- Fixed Term – 3 years
- Full-time (35 hours per week)
- Silicon Quantum Computing is a well-funded company with a unique mix of government, university, and corporate investors – including Federal Government, CBA, Telstra, NSW Government and UNSW Sydney.
- SQC is seeking to commercialise silicon quantum computing technology – technology that has the potential to have a global impact when realised.
- SQC’s technologies build on 20 years of world-leading research by the Centre and include the development of novel fabrication and advanced measurement techniques towards a quantum processor based in silicon.
- These roles and the Company are co-located with the headquarters of the Centre at UNSW Sydney.
The Senior FPGA/DSP Engineer will work with world leading atomic electronics and quantum computing teams at SQC and CQC2T in Sydney. Alongside the lead cryogenic hardware engineer, the Senior FPGA/DSP Engineer will develop efficient electrical measurement facilities for the design, implementation and maintenance of high frequency electronics on cryogenic measurement platforms. This role will be at the heart of assembling the quantum computer, working alongside quantum physicists, and software engineers in the design, assembly and testing of silicon-based quantum computers.
The Senior FPGA/DSP Engineer reports to Professor Michelle Simmons and works alongside other staff and students funded by SQC as well as the Centre and may assist where necessary with the supervision of other team members. This position provides a unique opportunity to work within a truly multi-disciplinary team of scientists and engineers working at the very forefront of quantum computing internationally.
