Research Assistant, Software and Firmware Engineer in Atom Arrays Laboratory
Software and firmware engineer in Atom Arrays Laboratory
Atom arrays are one of the hottest platforms for quantum computing and simulation today. These involve singly-trapped ultracold atoms held in optical tweezers that can be dynamically reconfigured. The vision of the Atoms Array Laboratory is to solve complex problems in material science using reconfigurable atom arrays and quantum physics. We are seeking a research assistant with software and firmware engineering capabilities, who can assume the following responsibilities:
- Implement and debug real-time control of atom arrays using both software-defined radio and streamed arbitrary waveform generators
- Investigate machine-learning algorithms for enhanced real-time reconfiguration of atoms
- Comparison of machine-learning algorithms against traditional rearrangement methods
- Develop and maintain various software and firmware interfaces for device control in the laboratory
The research assistant should have at least 2 years of experience in software and firmware engineering, and a Bachelor's degree in either physics or computer science.
At NUS, the health and safety of our staff and students are one of our utmost priorities, and COVID-vaccination supports our commitment to ensure the safety of our community and to make NUS as safe and welcoming as possible. Many of our roles require a significant amount of physical interactions with students/staff/public members. Even for job roles that may be performed remotely, there will be instances where on-campus presences are required.
In accordance with Singapore's legal requirements, unvaccinated workers will not be able to work on the NUS premises with effect from 15 January 2022. As such, job applicants will need to be fully COVID-19 vaccinated to secure successful employment with NUS.
