  • Conduct cutting-edge research to devise novel quantum algorithms for multi-core and distributed quantum computing systems, with an emphasis on scalability, fault-tolerance, and performance optimization.

  • Translate theoretical quantum algorithms into practical implementations, collaborating closely with our quantum hardware and software teams; as well as end-users of quantum computing and quantum computer providers.

  • Analyze and optimize quantum algorithms to maximize their efficiency and accuracy. Employ quantum simulators, emulators and quantum processors to test and validate algorithms.

  • Collaborate between our multi-disciplinary team of quantum physicists, engineers, and software developers to explore the synergies between quantum hardware and algorithms.

  • Keep up-to-date with the latest research in quantum computing, quantum algorithms, quantum networking and distributed computing. Apply state-of-the-art technique to drive our quantum research forward.

  • Prepare and publish research papers, presenting findings at conferences and contributing to the quantum science and technology community.

  • Contribute to the generation of intellectual property though patents and novel algorithm designs. 

Required qualifications and Experience

  •  A PhD in Quantum Computing, Quantum Networking, Computer Science, Physics, Mathematics, or related field. Strong academic achievements and publications in quantum algorithms or distributed quantum computing will be highly valued.

  • Solid theoretical knowledge of quantum computing and quantum algorithms.

  • Proficiency in programming languages commonly used in quantum computing, such as Python, Qiskit, Cirq, or equivalent.

  • Familiarity with leading quantum software platforms and tools for quantum algorithm development and simulation.

  • Strong problem-solving skills and the ability to develop innovative solutions to complex computational challenges.

  • A team player who can work effectively within a collaborative research environment.

Preferred qualifications and Experience

  •  Demonstrated experience in quantum algorithm research, preferably with hands-on experience in quantum algorithm design and simulation.

  • Experience in multi-core or distributed quantum computing will be considered as a significant advantage.

  • Demonstrated track record of publications in renowned quantum science and technology journals and conference.

  • Potential to lead and mentor a team of researchers in the future.

  • Basic understanding of quantum hardware components and their impact on algorithm design.
