!! Deadline: June 15 th , 2020 !!
We investigate the connections between foundations of Quantum Physics and Computer Science, our research focuses on information storing and processing by means of quantum physical systems (e.g. photons, electrons, trapped ions, superconducting circuits). The covered research topics range from fundamental aspects of Quantum Mechanics to technological applications.
The Research Scientist for Quantum Computing will design experiments to run on emerging hardware to give insights into quantum approaches to NASA problems of interest, explore the robustness of the hardware, develop best practice programming techniques for quantum hardware, and illuminate the inner workings to better understand the mechanisms that can be used to provide a quantum computational advantage.
