We are looking for exceptional and motivated candidates for a postdoc position in quantum distributed algorithms. The position is funded by a large grant of the Templeton Fondation (more information here http://www.qiss.fr). Prospect candidates are expected to have strong background in one of the following area: classical distributed algorithms, quantum algorithms, quantum information, especially NISQ approach to quantum computing.
Moreover, prior experience with quantum software development environments (e.g., Cirq, Qiskit, Forest) is very welcome.

The main goal of the project is to investigate quantum problems on distributed architecture, as the quantum leader election algorithm, byzantine faults and graph state generation as computational source. Then we will also aim to develop a comprehensive library for characterization, certification, and error-mitigation for near-term quantum platform. The successful post doc will work in the exciting environment of the Technological Campus in Luminy (Marseille, France), crossing-point of several excellent and internationally recognized scientific initiatives.
