Research Engineer – Quantum Sensing at DTU Physics

DTU

The section of Quantum Physics and Information Technology and Centre for Macroscopic Quantum States (bigQ) are one of Denmark’s leading research groups for the research and development of quantum technology. As part of an innovation project funded by Novo Nordisk Fond, we are seeking a research engineer to work on a 1-year project aimed at using novel diamond-based quantum sensor technology for applications in biotechnology. The goal of the project is to deliver a prototype, handheld device for recording of biomagnetic or bioacoustic signals, with the longer-term goal of further developing this into a commercial medical device and spinoff company.

The job


Your primary responsibility will be the development and construction of the prototype sensing device. This will involve:

  • Design/selection of optical components, including laser optics
  • Mechanical design and fabrication, including 3D printing
  • Design and use of electronics
  • Some programming and instrument control

Our expectations of you

We are looking for a candidate with experience in:
  • Building prototype experimental or test apparatus
  • Basic electronics, primarily analog signals in the kHz range
  • Data acquisition and signal processing, filtering and timeseries analysis
  • Any of Python, Matlab or Labview
  • Computer-aided modelling and design e.g., Autocad or Solidworks
  • Working independently

The ideal candidate should have flexibility and eagerness to learn. Although an interest is desirable, any necessary training in quantum technology will be given.

What We Offer In Return


We offer an interesting and challenging job in an international atmosphere with the focus on research, teaching, innovation and scientific advice for the benefit of the surrounding community. We place emphasis on a high level of professionalism among our staff, so skills development is an integral part of our organization. We offer a great flexibility in the position. In the area of technical and natural sciences, DTU is one of the leading research and education institutions in Europe.
You will be working in the Quantum Physics and Information Technology Section of DTU’s Department of Physics. Our section offers a culturally rich environment comprised of around 40 people with diverse backgrounds.

Salary and appointment terms


The appointment will be based on the collective agreement with the Danish Confederation of Professional Associations. The allowance will be agreed upon with the relevant union. The employment is full time, for the period of 1 year.
