Postdoc Position on Quantum Error Correction for Nisq Devices

About QuTech

QuTech, founded by the TU Delft and The Netherlands Organization for Applied Research (TNO), is anadvanced research center for quantum computing and quantum communication. The research at QuTechis focused on solving scientific and engineering challenges to enable reliable quantum informationprocessing, in collaboration with public and industrial partners. Current research takes place along threescientific roadmaps focused on the development of fault-tolerant quantum computing, topologicalquantum computing, and the quantum internet.

The Quantum Computer Architecture Lab, at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science (EEMCS), focuses on definition and development of a scalable quantum computer architecture. It is also part of the fault-tolerant quantum computing roadmap of QuTech. The main areas of research are: quantum programming languages and compiler, quantum instruction set architecture, quantum microarchitecture, quantum error correction, quantum computer simulation and mapping of quantum algorithms.

Job description

The work focuses on the implementation of small quantum error correction codes and error mitigation techniques for Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum (NISQ) devices. This position is part of the QuTech-Intel project on quantum computing. The candidate will collaborate with PhD/ master students workingon related quantum topics.
