Job Description

Research Fellow (Quantum algorithms and/or Quantum simulation with NISQ devices at CQT Singapore)

The positions are in the group of Dimitris G. Angelakis in the Centre for Quantum Technologies Singapore. We are looking for highly motivated candidates  with a strong research background and a PhD in quantum information with a focus on quantum algorithms to complement the group’s expertise in quantum simulation and computation. Past work in quantum algorithm design and/or quantum machine learning and/or quantum optimization problems, especially with NISQ devices for real world applications (chemistry, logistics, finance etc) will be a strong plus. The research will involve both analytical ‘pen and paper’ studies as well as numerical simulations; it is also expected that use of prototype quantum computers will be involved for testing of the algorithms (in direct collaboration with experimentalists, or remotely, through access to online quantum hardware).

The group’s research interests range from implementations of quantum simulation, quantum many-body systems, more recently quantum machine learning and optimization with NISQ processors (see group’s website). The group has active collaborations with world leading theory and experimental quantum groups in Singapore, Europe and US.

Job Requirements

  • Minimum Qualification: Ph.D. in Physics
  • Strong research background and a PhD in quantum information with a focus on quantum algorithms and applications
  • A strong publication record in high impact research journals is essential, strong motivation for research excellence as well as ability to work in an interdisciplinary team is desired.

Remuneration will commensurate with the candidate’s qualifications and experience.

Duration of Contract: up to 1 year (subject to funding availability and performance appraisal)

IWe regret that only shortlisted candidates will be notified.
