Quantum Algorithm Developer (m/f/d)

As Quantum Algo­rithm Deve­lo­per at Q.ANT, you will shape the future of our quantum algo­rith­ms run­ning on our novel pho­to­nic quantum archi­tec­tu­re. You will under­stand the under­ly­ing working princi­ples of our hard­ware plat­form and simu­la­te dif­fe­rent imple­men­ta­ti­ons to devi­se new algo­rith­ms with an opti­mal fit. Fur­ther­mo­re, you will inves­ti­ga­te ways for quantum error miti­ga­ti­on and cor­rec­tion towards uni­ver­sal algo­rith­ms on a scala­b­le pho­to­nic quantum computer. 

Loca­ti­on: Stutt­gart, Ulm 

A com­ple­te app­li­ca­ti­on con­sists of a cover let­ter (moti­va­ti­on, max. one page), a CV and your diplomas.

Your tasks

  • Deri­ve new algo­rith­ms and adapt/ impro­ve the exis­ting ones for our pho­to­nic quantum computing 
  • Deve­lop quantum error miti­ga­ti­on and cor­rec­tion sche­mes for pho­to­nic quantum algorithms 
  • Simu­la­te the quantum algo­rith­ms with respect to dif­fe­rent para­me­ter cons­traints to deri­ve hard­ware require­ments of our plat­form (e.g. size, accu­ra­cy, noi­se, scalability) 
  • Opti­mi­ze quantum algo­rith­ms with respect to the advan­ta­ges, exter­nal con­di­ti­ons, and noi­se chan­nels in our pho­to­nic quantum computing 
  • Gain an in-depth under­stan­ding of the rele­vant under­ly­ing working princi­ples of our pho­to­nic approach to explo­it its advan­ta­ges for the development of novel pho­to­nic quantum com­pu­ting algorithms 
  • Stay curious and keep up to date with the exci­ting cur­rent sci­en­ti­fic and techno­logical advancements 

Your profile

  • Mas­ter or PhD degree in Phy­sics, Mathe­ma­tics, Com­pu­ter Sci­ence, or rela­ted rele­vant field 
  • Know­ledge of quantum com­pu­ting, quantum phy­sics, quantum optics and/ or non-line­ar optics 
  • Know­ledge of quantum algo­rith­ms for NISQ quantum acce­le­ra­tors (e.g. VQE, QAOA, QML, quantum sam­pling) as well as for uni­ver­sal quantum com­pu­ting (gated-based, clus­ter-sta­te, mea­su­re­ment-based, CV
  • Hands-on expe­ri­ence in working on algo­rithm development or in the area pho­to­nic quantum com­pu­ting is a strong plus 
  • Pro­gramming skills in Python and/or other high-level pro­gramming lan­guages as well as expe­ri­ence with quantum pro­gramming lan­guages and SDKs 
  • Respon­si­ble, crea­ti­ve, and team-oriented way of working in a dyna­mic start-up environment 
  • Good lan­guage skills in Ger­man and English 

Your benefits

  • In our team-oriented working atmo­s­phe­re, you have fle­xi­ble opti­ons for working hours and can thus com­bi­ne your job and free time in the best pos­si­ble way. 
  • The inter­disciplinary team sup­ports you in your pro­fes­sio­nal and per­so­nal fur­ther education. 
  • Insight into the development of high-tech products.
