QuTech is a mission-driven research institute run jointly by Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) and the Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research (TNO). Together, we work on a radically new technology with world-changing potential, developing scalable prototypes of a quantum computer and an intrinsically safe quantum internet.
We are creating the quantum future and we believe that quantum technology will be a game changer in many social and economic sectors – including health, agriculture, climate and safety. To achieve our ambitious goals, we bring together scientists, engineers and industry in an inspiring environment, with plenty of space for ambition, entrepreneurship and innovation.
Our research and engineering activities are conducted in three divisions: Quantum Computing, Quantum Internet and Qubit Research. Our divisions and support teams include 220 FTE and over 300 dedicated people.
We are now looking for a Technical Project Manager to join Quantum Computing division.
Quantum computing division:
Realizing the promise of a quantum computer requires the development of different layers of hardware and software, together referred to as the quantum computing stack. This is what we do in the Quantum Computing Division. The basis of the stack, referred to as the ‘quantum chip’, contains the qubits. We are investigating different types of approaches for this part of the stack: electron spins in quantum dots and superconducting quantum circuits. Also, we’re developing the system architecture that connects and translates quantum algorithms to the low-level pulses that operate on the qubits of quantum processors.
As a Technical Project Officer, you will be the interface between the QuTech scientific staff, engineers, external partners and funding providers. You will coordinate national and international projects, ensuring good communication and a smooth project development from A to Z. You will be reporting to the Division Coordinator.
This unique opportunity will allow you to be challenged, develop new skills and work in a unique international setting, where ground-breaking scientific discovery in the field of quantum communication is happening.
Your daily responsibilities will be:
