The quantum computing group at Argonne National Laboratory is seeking postdoctoral researchers. We are interested in strong candidates with expertise in various aspects of quantum computing, including quantum algorithms, quantum distributed systems, quantum networking, quantum simulations, or quantum error correction. Positions are available immediately, though candidates should be available no later than July 2019.
Argonne National Laboratory is part of the Chicago Quantum Exchange, a research hub that is building a 30-mile quantum teleportation network using telecommunication fiber. Argonne is also at the forefront of innovation in computing and will be the site of the first exascale supercomputer in the US. Postdoctoral researchers have the opportunity to collaborate with quantum scientists at Argonne and partner institutions in the Chicago area, including the University of Chicago, Northwestern University, and Fermilab.
We are seeking candidates with knowledge of quantum computing and experience in one or more of the following:
Large-scale code development in C, C++, Python or Java
Compilation and circuit optimization techniques
Communication networks, including design and simulations of network protocols
Scientific simulations, including simulations of errors in quantum systems
Optical networking and quantum optics at telecommunication wavelengths
What We Offer
Ability to participate in high-profile research to build the first large-scale teleportation network in the US
Collaborations with a diverse group of scientists covering aspects of quantum computing ranging from theory of quantum computing to applied physics
Competitive salary, relocation assistance, and comprehensive benefits package
A vibrant community of 3,300 employees including scientists, postdoctoral scholars and students located in close proximity to Chicago
How to Apply
Interested candidates should contact the project lead Martin Suchara at email@example.com and attach their CV. Candidates will have the opportunity to learn more about the positions from Argonne scientists at the APS March Meeting in Boston. Application can be also submitted on this APS jobs website.
About Argonne National Laboratory
Argonne is a multidisciplinary science and engineering research center, where talented scientists, engineers, and business professionals work together to answer the biggest questions facing humanity, from how to obtain affordable clean energy to protecting ourselves and our environment. Ever since we were born out of the University of Chicago’s work on the Manhattan Project in the 1940s, our goal has been to make an impact — from the atomic to the human to the global scale.At Argonne, we explore the world together in order to build a better one.Whether it be for premier research opportunities, a chance to blend work and home life, a diverse community of colleagues or a place where others genuinely care about the planet, Argonne offers something for you. We offer work-life balance, professional development opportunities, and a culture of innovation that embraces diversity, inclusion, flexibility, collaboration, and career growth. Argonne also offers a comprehensive array of exceptional benefits to meet a variety of needs. In addition to medical, dental, life and disability coverage, you’ll have access to paid time off, a retirement plan with a generous match and a number of other ...benefits, such as onsite wellness facilities, an on-site child care center and auto and homeowners’ insurance.
