Postdoc: Quantum algorithms for plasma physics

Job type: 

Postdoc position at the MIT Plasma Science and Fusion Center (PSFC), to design quantum algorithms (with a numerical or analytical characterization of their performance) for solving plasma physics and fusion-relevant problems on fault-tolerant or near-term quantum platforms. Will work closely with and under the supervision of professors Loureiro and Cappellaro (MIT) and Dr. Hari Krovi (BBN) and collaborate and assist the supervision of graduate students involved in the project.


PhD in quantum computing with a knowledge of quantum algorithms, or in theoretical plasma physics.
