Postdoctoral position in Quantum Computing applied to Quantum Chemistry, Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden

Job type: 
Application deadline: 
Sunday, March 31, 2019

Within the the EU QT-Flagship, the OpenSuperQ consortium will build a cloud-based superconducting quantum computer at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden. As part of this effort, we are currently seeking a Postdoc in Computational Quantum Chemistry, who will work in the Chalmers team modelling physical systems on quantum computers. The aim is to develop algorithms for calculating the electronic structure and energy surfaces of molecules of relevance to prebiotic chemistry, beginning with water and hydrogen cyanide, and to run them on the available simulated and physical quantum hardware. The calculations will benchmark quantum computers and provide tests of quantum advantage and quantum superiority.

Theoretical physicists trained in quantum information processing that are interested in learning quantum chemistry are welcome to apply. And vice versa - Quantum chemists trained in method development that are interested in learning quantum information processing are also welcome to apply.
