Research Associate in Quantum Simulation for New Quantum Materials

Imperial College London

Location: London
Salary: £43,093 to £50,834 per annum
Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Fixed-Term/Contract
Placed On: 22nd September 2022
Closes: 21st October 2022
Job Ref: NAT01272
 

We are seeking to appoint one motivated and collaborative Research Associate for two years in the first instance (with the possibility of extension) to work on the Samsung-Imperial project “Quantum Simulation for New Quantum Materials”.

Many of the unsolved problems in materials science are directly related to the limitations of classical computers. The main task of the project is to use noisy-intermediate-scale hardware of quantum computers to tackle real-world problems in materials science. We are also interested in theory of solid-state qubits. The duties will include identifying concrete problems, and developing new algorithms for quantum simulations and hardware design for solid-state qubits. The appointee will have direct access to the state-of-the-art IBM Q quantum computer and other quantum hardware. In this interdisciplinary project, the appointee will work in a dedicated team of postdocs and PhD students led by Professor Myungshik Kim, Professor Peter Haynes and Professor Johannes Knolle.

Essential Criteria:

  • A PhD or equivalent in the area of Quantum Information, quantum algorithms or theory of spin/transmonic qubits.
  • Commensurate with experience, a strong record of research delivery and publications in at least one of the above areas, as well as a strong interest and the ability to learn about the others.
  • Proven expertise in programming and numerical methods for quantum computation, quantum many-body systems, quantum chemistry or quantum information. 
  • Ability to work independently and collaboratively.

Existing experience with quantum simulation / theory of quantum hardware is highly beneficial.

This post is available for 24 months in the first instance
