Research group: 

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. The ideal candidate has a background in the theory of quantum computing, with a strong foundation in mathematics and/or theoretical computer science (Master's degree required).

You will be jointly supervised by Stacey Jeffery (CWI) and Michael Walter (University of Amsterdam). You will be employed by the Korteweg-de Vries Institute for Mathematics at the University of Amsterdam, but will also be a member of QuSoft, a vibrant and interdisciplinary research institute hosted by CWI, and as such, will share an office with other QuSoft students at CWI.

All applications received before February 7 will receive full consideration. For more information, and to apply, see:
