Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI) has a vacancy in the QuSoft research group for a talentedPostdoc (3 years)
on the subject of characterisation and benchmarking of quantum computers.Job description
Quantum computing devices are rapidly increasing in scale and complexity. However they are still very far away from the abstract ideal of a computer. For the foreseeable future, running any kind of useful task or algorithm on such a device means explicitly taking into account their physical limitations. The goal of this project is to do theoretical research in the characterisation of noise in quantum devices, with an eye towards experimental implementation. Potential research topics include shadow estimation, benchmarks for quantum computers, and the development of novel characterisation procedures more generally.
This position is established as part of the Quantum Delta NL (https://www.quantumdelta.nl
) program, the Dutch national initiative funded by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy for the development of quantum technology.
