jobs description


DSO National Laboratories (DSO) is Singapore's largest defence research and development (R&D) organisation, with the critical mission to develop technological solutions to sharpen the cutting edge of Singapore's national security. At DSO, you will develop more than just a career. This is where you will make a real impact and shape the future of defence across the spectrum of air, land, sea, space and cyberspace.

The Emerging Systems Division focuses research and development on a broad spectrum of capabilities that are critical to the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) defence systems. These include antenna design and electromagnetics, as well as next-wave technologies in the areas of lasers and advanced materials.

The successful candidate will be part of a team of research scientists and engineers developing quantum capabilities in DSO. The goal is to translate cutting-edge, quantum sensing technologies into robust solutions for defence applications. At the Applied... Physical Science Lab in DSO, the successful candidate will work alongside highly motivated colleagues, collaborate with both local and overseas quantum communities to unlock the power of quantum technologies.

People are DSO’s greatest asset. You will get to realise your career aspirations and develop your own niche either as a deep technical expert or a leader in the team. With frequent career dialogues and a robust training and development framework, we will provide you with the necessary development tools for you to reach your potential. You will also be recognised and rewarded through competitive remuneration packages and scholarship opportunities.

Quantum Scientist / Engineer

In this role, you will:
• Design and develop robust quantum sensors for inertial or electromagnetic sensing
• Test and characterise quantum gases or devices in high vacuum, cryogenic setups
• Analyse experimental data from atom interferometry or electromagnetic sensing measurements
• Be involved in system integration of various subsystems (vacuum, optical, electronics, cryogenics) to achieve robust and functional quantum sensing
• Survey and evaluate the feasibility of emerging quantum sensing technologies

• PhD / Masters / Bachelor’s Degree in Physics, Electrical engineering, or a related field
• Experience in high vacuum and cryogenic experiments
• Experience with experimental techniques, such as optical alignment, interferometry and electronics testing
• Working proficiency in a programming language (Python, MATLAB)
• Strong background in quantum physics, electromagnetism and optics
• Independent and self-driven learner
• Works well in a team
• Passion to translate lab technologies into real world applications
