Reduction of electronic power consumption and elimination of losses, which cause the generation of parasitic heat, are key for reducing energy demands of digital processes and can be achieved through developing advanced functional materials and novel computational methodologies. This includes paradigms beyond traditional CMOS ‘von Neumann’ computing executing Boolean logic towards quantum computing and is underpinned by new materials.
We are offering PhD positions (E13 3/4) to highly motivated and well-qualified applicants to conduct research in the area of quantum information processing, with a focus on quantum error correction, fault-tolerant quantum computing and physical implementations. Research topics can include:
- Verification and Certification of Quantum Fault-Tolerance
- Open Quantum Neural Networks - From Fundamental Concepts to Implementations with Atoms and Photons
- Advanced quantum computing with trapped ions, with HPC connection
QuSoft and The University of Amsterdam invite you to apply for a PhD position in Quantum Algorithms. You will conduct research in the theory and design of quantum algorithms for optimization problems, both continuous and discrete, including NP optimization. This line of research includes both long-term and NISQ algorithmic theory and design, with a special focus on applications to use cases motivated by industry problems.
