Over the last few years, the explosion in computing power, coupled with geopolitical competition, has propelled Quantum research and technology into the mainstream. Although commercial applications are few and far between, they are within reach.
The purpose of the Quantum.Tech exhibition and conference is to drive forward the commercialisation of Quantum applications across industry, and to provide a global, annual meeting place for the Quantum ecosystem. To pull Quantum out of the research lab, and onto the shop floor.
Are you looking for an opportunity to contribute to the next revolution in computing technology? Do you want to take part in an exciting and rapidly growing new industry, quantum technology? Do you want to put your skills to use at the forefront of a cutting-edge field? The Xanadu Hardware team is looking for someone like you.
Relevant Experience for the Role:
The selected candidate will work with our established team of physicists and engineers to help build our photonic quantum computation platform based on the continuous variable (CV) approach. They will be involved in all aspects of the quantum hardware system at Xanadu’s lab: design of optical components and architectures, construction of apparatus, and carrying out key experiments. They will also be responsible for writing patents and peer-reviewed publications describing these devices and experiments. Successful applicants will have a proven track record of accomplishments and creativity in experimental quantum optics, having developed during their research careers cutting-edge techniques for the generation, control, and detection of non-classical light. To succeed in this role, you should have the following:
Basic Qualifications and Experience:
• PhD in experimental physics, or related relevant discipline, with a specialization in quantum optics
• 1+ years post-doctoral research experience (exceptional applicants without post-doctoral experience will be considered)
Our team is located in Toronto, Canada. We have a great team that tailors’ individual relocation and immigration packages to best support your move.
Please submit a copy of your CV and any additional information outlining why you think this is the right role for you! We’re looking forward to reading your application.
In this role you will help Xanadu's research staff make effective use of high-performance computing (HPC) to simulate quantum computing devices. You will help translate high-level single-thread code to multi-thread and massively parallelized low-level routines run on an HPC cluster / supercomputer / cloud environments. You will also be responsible for helping develop and optimize new parallelization techniques for simulating large quantum systems and algorithms designed for Xanadu's quantum computing platform and participate in the design and development of fast decoders for fault-tolerant quantum computers.
• 5+ years of experience working in related fields.
• PhD in Computer Science, Theoretical or Mathematical Physics or Mathematics with relevant postdoctoral experience preferred, or equivalent combination of
education and experience.
• Proven track record in research of parallelization techniques (e.g., publications, software, patents).
