As part of the newly established research partnership between Microsoft Ireland, the SFI Centre for Advanced Materials and Bioengineering (AMBER) and the School of Physics at Trinity College Dublin we are delighted to offer two highly prestigious fully funded PhD scholarships (4 years) in the area of quantum simulation. The selected scholars will work on exciting cutting edge topics of mutual interest between Microsoft quantum research and the quantum research teams based at Trinity College Dublin. The topic is on the quantum simulation of quantum many-body dynamics and benchmarking algorithms for the design, optimisation and classification of novel phases of quantum matter and materials.

The selected Microsoft-TCD quantum scholars will use the recently developed Microsoft quantum computing ecosystem as part of their project and will be expected to interact regularly with the global Microsoft quantum research team.

We welcome applicants from diverse backgrounds and will consider both EU and non-EU applications. Female applicants are particularly encouraged to apply.
