Research group: 

Quantum Condensed Matter Research Group, RIKEN

Nori’s group at RIKEN (in a nice suburb right outside Tokyo, Japan) is seeking Postdoctoral Researchers and Research Scientists working on (1) quantum computing using superconducting circuits, and/or (2) AI machine learning applied to quantum physics.

Our top priorities are now: (1) quantum computing using superconducting qubits, (2) coherent Ising machines, and (3) neural networks and machine learning applied to quantum physics. Candidates with prior experience in these topics will have priority.

We perform interdisciplinary research in theoretical quantum information processing, quantum computing, superconducting qubits, atomic physics, quantum optics, condensed matter physics, nanoscience, and computational physics. We are also studying hybrid quantum electro-mechanical systems, optomechanics, nano-mechanics, quantum nano-electronics, and quantum simulations. Particular emphasis is being placed on quantum computing using superconducting Josephson-junction qubits, scalable quantum circuitry and improved designs for their quantum control. An underlying theme of our work is to better understand nano-scale quantum systems and devise methods to control them. We use physical models to make predictions that can be tested experimentally and that can be used to better understand the observed phenomena.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until filled. More information in the link.
