Postdoctoral Position in “Quantum simulation and quantum machine learning” in CQT Singapore

The position are 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 theoretical quantum physics and/or quantum computing with a background in quantum machine learning in near scale quantum devices.

A strong publication record in high impact research journals is essential. Experience in collaboration with experimentalists and working in team will also be a strong plus. The group’s research interests range from quantum simulation with quantum optical setups, to non-equilibrium many-body dynamics, periodically driven systems, and topological and exotic quantum phases among others (see group website). More recently we have also been working in application of quantum simulations to The group has active collaborations with world leading theory and experimental groups in Europe and US.

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. We accept applications until a suitable candidate is found. Salary for junior appointments will be between S$ 55.000-85.000 per annum depending on experience with access to travel funds as well. Tax in Singapore for this level is roughly 5-7%.

Applications should be 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.
