Position Description:

The Mathematics and Computer Science (MCS) Division at Argonne National Laboratory seeks multiple postdoctoral candidates to participate in projects of strategic national importance in quantum information science. Postdoctoral appointees will contribute to projects that model the behavior of multiqubit systems, develop quantum algorithms for materials simulations, perform quantum network simulations, and develop network protocols, or use a full-stack approach to optimize quantum computing.

The MCS Division at Argonne National Laboratory is a leader in many areas of quantum information science, including use of high-performance computing for simulations of quantum networks and systems and development of quantum algorithms with applications in materials science and optimization. The laboratory is the lead institution of Q?NEXT, a National Quantum Information Science Research Center awarded by the U.S. Department of Energy. The Q-NEXT Center includes nearly 100 researchers from three DOE national laboratories, ten universities, and ten leading U.S. quantum technology companies. Postdoctoral appointees will be fully integrated in the quantum information science research team in the MCS Division and have the opportunity to collaborate with leaders in the field.

Position Requirements:

Candidates should have a recent or soon to be expected doctoral degree in a computational or engineering discipline or physics. We are seeking candidates with knowledge of computing and experience in one or more of the following areas:

Simulation of open quantum systems, noise characterization, or quantum error correction; Development of variational quantum algorithms with applications in quantum chemistry; Simulations of quantum networks or development of quantum network protocols; Optimization of quantum algorithms and quantum programming (e.g., using Qiskit); High-performance computing or scientific computing; Large-scale code development in C, C++, Python, or Go. Positions are available with start dates in 2021, but there is flexibility in start dates for highly qualified candidates. U.S. citizenship or permanent residency is not required.

Applicants should provide contact information of three references in their application.
