Two theory postdoctoral positions in superconducting quantum computing
Two theory postdoc positions are available at Korea Research Institute of Standards and Science (KRISS), located in Daejeon, South Korea. We are looking for highly motivated, well-qualified, and independent scientists who would be interested in superconducting quantum computing. The successful applicants will be able to develop their academic career in a collaborative and interdisciplinary environment, allowing diverse opportunities to work with other theorists and experimentalists at KRISS or other places. Furthermore, the applicants will work very closely with superconducting quantum computers being developed at KRISS under the Korean quantum flagship project launched this year. The tasks expected for the applicants to perform include studies on
1. Quantum gates of superconducting qubits
- Hamiltonian engineering for superconducting qubits and gates
- Optimization of physical parameters to maximize the gate fidelity of two-qubit gates
2. Quantum algorithms and software development
- Quantum algorithms
- Quantum circuit optimization
- Quantum complier/transpiler
- Softwares for executing quantum algorithms on quantum computers
3. Noise analysis
- Randomized benchmarking and process tomography
- Error mitigation and error correction
With a flexible starting date, the initial term of appointment is two years (1+1) and renewable on a yearly basis contingent upon funding and successful performance. The position will be open until filled.
Applicants should have obtained a Ph.D. degree within the last five years or soon to be completed in physics, mathematics, computer science or related fields. A strong background in quantum physics, quantum computing, and quantum information science is required. Also, proven expertise in analytical and numerical methods in specific research topics/fields including Hamiltonian engineering, quantum algorithms, quantum simulation/emulation, error analysis, and quantum circuits are highly valued in addition to good communication and writing skills.
For application, please send an email to Dr. Changhyoup Lee (email@example.com) with
- curriculum vitae
- list of publications
- names and email addresses of at least two senior scientists for reference
- short statement of research interests and plans
Any informal enquiries are also very welcome.
