Nanofabrication engineer

C12

C12 develops a reliable & application-specific quantum computer, to solve highly complex computing tasks, currently out of reach of the most powerful supercomputers.
Building a quantum computer still needs innovators ready to tackle exciting challenges. C12 founders are convinced that only a new material for the qubit will bring a technological breakthrough.
C12 uniquely uses carbon nanotubes (CNT) as the fundamental building blocks of its quantum processor. This high-purity material minimizes errors, radically improves performance and reduces hardware overhead for fault-tolerant computing. Combined with well-established semiconductor techniques, carbon nanotubes will help scale quantum computing, just as silicon revolutionized classical computing.
Founded in 2020, C12 is a fast-growing start-up, having raised a seed round of USD 10 million in June 2021 and building its own lab in the heart of Paris (Panthéon).
Your role at C12
We are looking for a nanofabrication engineer for the fabrication of electronic circuits chips in our cleanroom. These printed circuits enable the control & read-out of our qubits and include superconducting resonators as well as superconducting & magnetic gate electrodes.
Your job will involve:
– The nanofabrication of chips
– The calibration of the tools and the monitoring of this calibration (dry etch, e-beam) by using metrology tools (AFM, SEM)
– Helping to create, develop and maintain process documentation
– Identifying potential limiting factors to quality and repeatability of the nanofabrication process
– Designing and implementing procedures/tools to enhance throughput
– Taking care of the regular maintenance of the clean room’s main equipment (e-beam, evaporator, SEM, etc.) with the help of the lab manager
As part of the nanofabrication team, you will have interactions with the quantum device design teams to improve overall circuit performance.
About you
– Master or Ph.D. in Physics, Experimental Physics, Materials Science and Engineering, Nanotechnology, Nanoscience or a related field
– Previous experience (> 6 months) performing multi-step nanofabrication autonomously in a clean room with the following processes or tools:
– Dry etch (required)
– Wet processes (cleaning, resist spinning and wet etch) (required)
– Metrology tools (SEM, AFM) (required)
– Metal evaporation (desirable)
– Wafer dicing (desirable)
– Wafer-scale and photolithography experiences (advantage)
– Electron-beam lithography of precisely defined sub-micron features (advantage)
– Meticulous attention to detail
– Good English language and written skills
You should join us if…
– You want to contribute to achieve landmark results in quantum computing, making a difference in the emerging quantum technologies
– You want to work within a 26-people team with various backgrounds in nanofabrication, quantum electronics, and carbon nanotube science to create a revolutionary quantum computing processor
– You want to thrive in a exceptional scientific environment with several industrial and academic partners
– You relate to our values (excellence, scientific integrity, diversity, curiosity, and care) and want to help us define our product-focus culture and ambition to accelerate
