The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is the national aeronautics and space research centre and the space agency of the Federal Republic of Germany. Here, 10,000 employees work together on a unique variety of topics in the fields of aeronautics, space, energy, transport, security and digitalisation. Their missions range from basic research to the development of innovative applications and products for tomorrow. Cutting-edge research requires excellent minds – particularly more females – at all levels, who fully achieve their potential in an inspiring environment. Launch your mission with us.

Your Job:

You will work in an interdisciplinary project team on quantum enhanced machine learning methods. This includes:
the extension, development and analysis of new quantum machine learning algorithms for current and near-future quantum computers
investigating the applicability of quantum machine learning techniques to real-world problems from application partners
implementation and testing of algorithmic concepts with real data using QML software libraries such as Pennylane
evaluating recent technological and algorithmic developments for current quantum computers and those available in the near future
leading contributions to technical reports, scientific articles and policy papers
the co-supervision of theses

Your Profile:

PhD in physics, computer science, mathematics or comparable fields
Research experience in the area of quantum algorithms (ideally quantum machine learning)
Proven organizational and communication skills
Ability to work independently in interdisciplinary teams
Good written and spoken English language skills
Ideally good German language skills, both written and spoken
Ideally experience in software development

The research group of Assistant Professor Bihui Zhu at the Homer L. Dodge Department of Physics and Astronomy and the Center for Quantum Research and Technology at University of Oklahoma, invites applications for a Postdoctoral Researcher position. The successful candidate will conduct theoretical research at the interface of AMO physics, quantum information science and condensed matter physics, with a focus on nonequilibrium quantum many-body phenomena and quantum computing with neutral atoms.

This project, in collaboration with IBM Research, will develop algorithms for efficient quantum simulation for plasma and fusion physics problems, and establishing their reliability in real-world quantum computers.

The project is ideal for a student interested in a close interplay of quantum computation and simulation with plasma physics.

Further details on the project and application process can be found at https://warwick.ac.uk/fac/sci/hetsys/themes/continuum/hp2023-15/

starting as soon as possible. The position (75% regular working time) entails a fixed-term con- tract for the duration of a PhD project. The successful applicant will be working on a cooperation project at the connection of Theoretical Physics and Experimental Physics. This position is lim- ited to 3 years (according to the German law “Wissenschaftszeitvertragsgesetz“) and includes a teaching responsibility of up to 3 hours per week. The possibility to graduate as a PhD is provided.
