The Director of the Center for Theoretical Physics PAS invites applications for Post-doc position at the CTP PAS, financed from the project “Near-term quantum computers: challenges, optimal implementations and applications”

Project is carried out within the Team-Net programme of the Foundation for Polish Science. PI of the project is Prof. dr hab. Marek Kuś / Group leader dr Michał Oszmaniec.

 

Project description:

Quantum computers promise savings in time and effort necessary to perform certain computational tasks, which themselves are of great practical relevance for many branches of science and industry. Building a working quantum computer is a notoriously difficult task due to the destructive influence of noise and decoherence affecting large-scale quantum systems. Therefore, one expects that in the near future only devices consisting of a limited number of imperfect qubits (basic units of quantum computers) will be available. Our project aims to characterize the computational power and to investigate possible practical applications of such devices. To realize these ambitious goals, we will form a network of closely collaborating research groups working on cutting-edge aspects of quantum computing: quantum machine learning, control of quantum systems, quantum error-correction and identification resources responsible for quantum speedup.

Benefits

10000 PLN (up to five years after PhD) or 15000 PLN (5-09 years after PhD). Expected net salary 6500 PLN (1500 EURO) - junior postdoc, or 10000 PLN (2300 Euro) - senior postdoc

 

 

Full-time employment for the period of one year with the possible further extensions.

The Institute does not provide accommodation.
