OPEN POSITIONS

CIFRE PhD scholarship

WAINVAM-E is looking for a motivated PhD student skilled in applied mathematics and numerical modeling with an interest in quantum sensing and metrology. WAINVAM-E is offering a CIFRE PhD scholarship on inversion problems related to non-destructive imaging of micro-electronics circuits and molecular biology.

Research program for the PhD student
WAINVAM-E is developing sensitive magnetometers based on the manipulation of electronic spins in artificial atoms located in a diamond crystal, the so-called nitrogen-vacancy (NV) color diamond centers. These spins are highly sensitive probes of magnetic field at the nanometer scale and will be used for failure analysis of electronic circuits through magnetic current imaging, or for cellular imaging. Optimally recovering the underlying information about circuits or cells from the magnetic measurements through advanced inversion algorithms will be the topic of this PhD thesis. The research will be conducted in collaboration with the experimental quantum sensing research lab of WAINVAM-E located in Ploemeur (Brittany, France) and a French academic laboratory specialized in signal processing. The research will help establish a bridge between cutting-edge research in quantum sensing and the commercialization of products for field applications. Practically, the PhD student will develop inversion models and algorithms to interpret the data of NV magnetometers for various problems and propose solutions to optimize the data acquisition procedures. WAINVAM-E has a strong patent and licensing strategy to promote key findings.

Profile of the applicant
Engineer or equivalent (Masters) with specialization in applied mathematics, inverse problems, image processing, machine learning and a keen interest in physics. Skills in programming languages are essential (Python is a plus). Basic knowledge of quantum physics is a plus. Ability to work in a team and write clear reports. Good level of English is mandatory.

Research Engineer

Research Engineer position in quantum sensing based on Nitrogen Vacancy color diamond centers – Permanent position

Mission and responsibilities

WAINVAM-E is developing sensitive magnetometers based on the manipulation of electronic spins in artificial atoms located in a diamond crystal, the so-called nitrogen-vacancy (NV) color diamond centers. These spins are highly sensitive probes of magnetic field at the micrometer and nanometer scales. At the micrometer scale, the NV sensors developed by WAINVAM-E will be used for failure analysis of electronic circuits through magnetic current imaging, and in nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy devices for chemical analysis.

The research engineer will:

• Reproduce proof-of-principle experiments performed by our academic partners (including interaction with such partners);

• Identify the parts of the system which can be optimized, depending on the application (including interaction with industrial end-users);

• Talk about findings with the data scientists and applied mathematicians of WAINVAM-E to develop appropriate models improving the performances of the sensors;

• Oversee the system engineering through interaction with development engineers (electrical, optical, mechanical, etc.);

• Foster positive exchange within the overall research and development activities of WAINVAM-E (strengthen academic collaborations, attend and participate in international conferences, author publications and patents).

   

Profile of the applicant

PhD with expertise in experimental quantum sensing with NV centers.

Ability to work as part of a multi-disciplinary team, write clear and concise reports and explain your work in accessible language.

Good level of English is mandatory.

Conditions

The position is a full-time, permanent contract under French law. It will be based in WAINVAM-E’s headquarters located in Ploemeur, Brittany in France. The engineer will conduct his/her research in the large laboratory space of the company. WAINVAM-E offers competitive salaries to encourage motivated and creative researchers to contribute to its success. As an active employee, he/she has the option of becoming a shareholder of the company. Full health benefits are paid for  by the company.

Research engineer in electronics (CDI/permanent contract)

WAINVAM-E bridges the gap between high-potential academic research and usable technology solutions. This transformation process is made possible by facilitating cross-disciplinary collaboration between scientists of different fields and business-oriented persons. WAINVAM-E will commercialize metrology solutions with a focus on non-destructive sensing technologies in cell biology and in microelectronics. To develop nanoscale metrology, WAINVAM-E specializes in the realization of quantum sensors based on nitrogen-vacancy (NV) color centers in diamond coupled to advanced mathematical inversion models and algorithms. The company was registered in April 2020 and is currently composed of 11 employees.

The research engineer will work in a multidisciplinary team of currently 6 engineers and researchers, which designs and realizes the prototype metrology solutions in the laboratory of the company. The sensor development involve broad expertise in hardware engineering including analog, digital and radio-frequency electronics, and driver developments.

Mission and responsibilities:

• Identify the different electronic sub-systems in the prototypes;

• Imagine their improvements in terms of performance and cost;

• Write the functional specifications;

• Design and build or have built prototype subsystems;

• Interact with subcontractors;

• Establish the list of materials and the associated costs;

• Gradually take the responsibility for the layout and equipment of the electronics laboratory;

• Foster positive exchange in the overall research and development activities of WAINVAM-E: strengthen academic collaborations, participate to international conferences, and participate to the writing of publications and patents.

Profil:

Electrical engineering degree or PhD in electronics. Experience of at least 5 years in electronics hardware development involving several technical competences is desired. Both academic and industrial experience is a plus.

Technical skills:

• PCB design

• RF electronics
