Tenure-track position in the area of quantum algorithms and applications of quantum computers

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).

Ph.D. student on the subject of quantum algorithms and complexity

Qusoft has a vacancy for a talented Ph.D. student, on the subject of quantum algorithms and complexity.

This position involves research into theoretical computer science aspects of quantum computing and quantum information theory, supervised by Prof. Ronald de Wolf, in CWI’s Algorithms and Complexity group.

Specifically, the project will focus on one or more of the following topics: the development of new quantum algorithms (for example for optimization problems) and the analysis of their complexity, the analysis of theoretical aspects of quantum machine learning and quantum communication complexity, and applications of quantum techniques to problems in classical computer science and mathematics. This is primarily a theoretical computer science position.

The starting date for the position could be anywhere between October 1, 2019, and January 1, 2020.
