Postdoc position on quantum computing

Job type: 


Application deadline: 

Friday, October 1, 2021

Research group: 

We are looking for highly motivated candidates with a strong research background and a PhD in quantum information with a focus on quantum algorithms.

Past work in quantum algorithm design and/or quantum machine learning and/or quantum optimization problems and/or quantum chemistry especially with NISQ devices for real world applications will be a strong plus.

The research will involve both analytical ‘pen and paper’ studies as well as numerical simulations; it is also expected that use of prototype quantum computers will be involved for testing of the algorithms (in direct collaboration with experimentalists, or remotely, through access to online quantum hardware). The group has active collaborations with world leading theory and experimental quantum groups in Singapore, Asia, Europe and US.

A strong publication record in high impact research journals is essential, strong motivation for research excellence as well as ability to work in an interdisciplinary team is desired.

The group’s research interests range from implementations of quantum simulation, quantum many-body systems, and quantum machine learning and optimization with NISQ processors (see group’s website).

The positions are available as soon as possible and can be up to 3 years with possible extension. More senior research appointments can also be considered for experienced candidates. Salary is very competitive and depends on experience, with access to travel funds as well.

Informal inquiries should be first sent by email to They should contain: a CV, a summary of past research (2 pages), a motivation letter (1 page), 1 paper/draft you consider your best work, and the contact details (email) of three referees. We accept applications until a suitable candidate is found.
