QuSoft / CWI Amsterdam / University of Amsterdam

The Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) in Amsterdam invites excellent researchers to apply for a Tenure-track position in the area of quantum algorithms and applications of quantum computers.

QuSoft is the Dutch research Center for Quantum Software that was launched in 2015. Its mission is to develop new communication protocols, algorithms, and applications for small and medium-sized prototypes as well as larger quantum computers. The researchers at QuSoft develop software and applications that exploit the extraordinary power of quantum computers based on their quantum mechanical properties such as superposition, interference and entanglement.

This position is established as part of the Quantum Software Consortium (QSC) program a 10-year grant funded by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science through the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research. QSC is hosted by three research clusters: Leiden University, QuSoft (collaboration of the University of Amsterdam, the Dutch national research institute for mathematics and computer science CWI, and Free University Amsterdam) and the Delft institute QuTech (a collaboration between Delft University of Technology and the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research TNO).
