Postdoctoral Position in “Quantum computation and quantum simulation with near term quantum devices for industry and business problems” in CQT Singapore

Job type: 

Application deadline: 

Saturday, February 9, 2019

The position is in the group of Dimitris G. Angelakis in the Centre for Quantum Technologies Singapore ( We are looking for highly motivated candidates with a strong research background and a PhD in quantum physics or quantum information and/or condensed matter or related discipline with experience in research in quantum algorithms and/or quantum machine learning. Past work in applying quantum computing to solve problems in industry and business sector in general and especially chemistry, biology or finance, will be a strong plus.

A strong publication record in high impact research journals and a solid background in analytical and numerical modelling is a requirement. The group’s research interests range from implementations of quantum simulation and computation with superconducting qubits, light-matter systems, cold ions and atoms; to quantum many-body physics and exotic phases of matter, driven quantum systems, and topology for quantum technologies (see group website). The group has active collaborations with world leading theory and experimental groups in quantum computing and quantum simulations in Europe and US.

The position is available as soon as possible and can be up to 3 years with possible extension to 5 years. Senior research appointments can also be considered. We accept applications until a suitable candidate is found. Candidates should first contact the group leader Dimitris G. Angelakis at sending their CV, up to two publications they consider their best/relevant for the post, and a research statement of maximum 3 pages in length summarising their past research results and future plans.
