Postdoc position in theoretical quantum computing (CPT PAS)

Job type: 

Application deadline: 

Friday, February 19, 2021

We are looking for extraordinary and motivated candidates for a postdoc position in theoretical quantum computing.

The position will be implemented within the group of Michał Oszmaniec in Center for Theoretical Physics PAS in Warsaw. The group is founded form the project "Quantum computers of the near future: challenges, optimal of implementations and applications" ( awarded by Foundation for Polish Science.

Prospect candidates are expected to have strong background in mathematical and formal aspects of quantum computing and quantum information. Depending on the qualifications and competence of candidates, we propose the following research topics:

• Certification and characterization of prototypes of quantum computers in order to develop effective methods of error mitigation on these devices.
• Mathematical foundations of quantum computing (effective compilation of quantum gates, universal quantum computation, new proposals for quantum advantage, classical simulation of noisy quantum computations, complexity of quantum states and unitaries)
• Application of generalized quantum measurements (POVMs) in new quantum algorithms and development of methods for their effective implementation on prototypes of quantum computers.

Recent publications and activities of the group can be found at:

We offer a monthly net salary in the range 1500-2300 EUR NET, depending on the experience.
