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 newly established Samsung-Imperial grant project “Quantum computation for new materials / theory of solid-state qubits”.

The main tasks of the post holders will be

  • to develop algorithms for an optimum use of the existing hardware of quantum processors
  • to work on new algorithms to demonstrate useful quantum advantages on near-term hardware
  • to design solid-state qubit hardware

The duties will include identifying concrete problems and developing new algorithms for quantum simulations and implementation schemes using solid-state qubits. In this interdisciplinary project, the post holders will work as part of a dedicated team of two Research Associates and four 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 and quantum algorithms, Theory of solid-state qubit hardware or simulation of Quantum Materials using quantum computational processors.
  • Evidence of outstanding promise and originality in research, demonstrated by a good publication record in at least one of the above areas.
  • Proven research experience with programming and numerical methods for quantum many-body systems, quantum chemistry, quantum optics and/or quantum information
  • Ability to work independently and collaboratively.

Existing knowledge of qubit hardware, Quantum Simulations and/or Quantum Information is highly beneficial.

This post is available for 24 months in the first instance
