Postdoc position in the group of Prof. Artur Izmaylov (University of Toronto, Canada) is available in the area of developing Quantum Computing algorithms for simulating Quantum Chemistry and Quantum Dynamics of molecular systems. Current research interests in the group include improving the Variational Quantum Eigensolver approach in various directions: 1) efficient unitary parametrization, 2) continuous non-linear optimization, and 3) projective measurement optimization (see arXiv for publication examples).
Knowledge of chemistry is preferable but not required, some familiarity with abstract algebra (e.g. Lie algebras and groups) is preferable.
This work will provide opportunities for collaboration with industrial partners and access to quantum computers.
Application letters with CVs should be emailed to artur.izmaylov at utoronto.ca
The search will continue until position is filled.
