Postdoc / quantum software engineer in device characterization and error-mitigation

Job type: 


Application deadline: 

Sunday, July 11, 2021

We are looking for exceptional and motivated candidates for a postdoc / quantum softwere engineer in quantum device characterization and error mitigation. The position is funded by the grant " National Supercomputing Infrastructure for EuroHPC - EuroHPC PL" realised in Center for Theoretical Physics PAS in Warsaw and coordinated by dr Michał Oszmaniec.

Prospect candidates are expected to have strong background in quantum information, especially NISQ approach to quantum computing. Moroever, prior experience with quantum software development environments  (e.g., Cirq, Qiskit, Forest) is required.

The main goal of the project is to develop comprehensive library for characterization, certification, and error-mitigation of for near-term quantum computers (including prototypes of IBM quantum computers). We will design modules for effective characterization and mitigation of errors on these devices. We will use the latest scientific research in the field of quantum computing while being
compatible with the Qiskit environment (in particular, Qisqit Terra and Ignis). The performance of obtained methods will be tested on paradigmatic quantum algorithms and quantum tasks carried out on real-life quantum hardware. This project is a part of a larger initiative aiming at providing access to quantum computers to the industry and scientific community in Poland. The resource-efficient characterization and error mitigation schemes will allow the use of the full potential of noisy and imperfect quantum computers both for research purposes and for potential.
