Job type: 
Application deadline: 
Sunday, December 31, 2017

We're looking for a research scientist, permanent position, in the field of quantum computing, more precisely:
-classical quantum simulation on HPC sytems
-quantum programming, in particular compilation techniques, optimisation of quantum circuits

Mission:
* design and develop innovative algorithms for high performance simulation of quantum programs, namely 40+ qubits
* prototype and implement on HPC systems, relying in particular on hardware accelerators (GPU, FPGA)
* implement numerical models of quantum hardware noise, on HPC systems, in order to simulate fault computation and optimize QECC
* design and develop innovative algorithms of quantum code optimizations, in particular resource minimization
* mentor PhD students and interns

Required Skills:
* expertize in at least one domain : classical simulation, quantum algorithmics, quantum programming languages
* hands-on programming with good knowledge of HPC techniques: openMP, MPI, CUDA ; C,C++,Python
* PhD strongly appreciated

Context:
Permanent position will be in Paris' region, France, in our Quantum R&D team, one of the biggest private lab in Europe.
