Postdoctoral Position in “Quantum simulation, quantum algorithms and quantum machine learning” in CQT Singapore

The position is in the group of Dimitris G. Angelakis in the Centre for Quantum Technologies Singapore (www.dimitrisangelakis.org). We are looking for highly motivated candidates with a strong research background and a PhD in theoretical quantum physics and/or quantum information and/or condensed matter or related discipline. Experience in developing quantum algorithms or quantum machine learning approaches for applications in finance or industry using intermediate-scale quantum computers is essential.

A strong publication record in high impact research journals and a solid background in analytical and numerical modelling is a requirement. Experience in collaboration with experimentalists or with industry and working in team will also be a plus. The group’s research interests range from quantum simulation and computation with quantum optical setups, to non-equilibrium many-body dynamics, periodically driven systems, and topological and exotic quantum phases among others (see group website). The group has active collaborations with world leading theory and experimental groups in quantum computing in Europe and US.

The position is available as soon as possible and can be up to 3 years with possible extension. We accept applications until a suitable candidate is found. Salary for appointments will be between S$ 55.000-85.000 per annum depending on experience with access to travel funds as well. More senior research appointments can also be considered. Tax in Singapore for this level is roughly 5-8%.

Applications should be sent by email to dimitris.angelakis@gmail.com. They should contain: a CV, a summary of past research (2 pages), a motivation letter (1 page), 1 paper/draft you consider your best work, and the contact details (email) of three referees.
