Postdoctoral position in atomic quantum simulation and computing
We are in the position to offer a full postdoctoral position on quantum simulation and quantum computing. The German ministry for Research and Education has invested about a billion Euros to contribute to a world leading ecosystem for building quantum devices. The position is located in this framework. It is funded by the project MUNIQC-ATOMS, dedicated to cold atomic architectures. The MUNIQC framework also allows for intense collaboration with teams working on trapped ions and to an extent on superconducting systems. It is also conjunct with the BMBF-funded project FermiQP. We collaborate here with experimental leaders of the field, such as Immanuel Bloch, Christian Gross, Thomas Monz and Rainer Blatt. Possible topics are related to
- protocol development,
- notions of computational power of quantum simulators,
- fermion to spin mappings,
- notions or error resiliance and error mitigation,
- applications in quantum chemistry,
- tools of verification, including shadow estimation, machine learning, and tomographic techniques.
That said, the setting will allow for substantial academic freedom, so that other topics can also be addressed. We can offer you a highly stimulating and productive research environment, driven by interaction and discussion and lots of blackboard time, and a very strong track record of getting people into senior academic positions or ones in the quantum industry.
The position is for either three or five years. It is on the E13 pay scale, designed for postdoctoral researchers, and all previous work experience including that towards the PhD can be respected when determining the salary scale. All job related questions and inquiries should be sent to both firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. The job adverts will be kept open until the positions are filled.
