Lead Scientist Position in Applied Quantum Algorithms

Technology Innovation Institute TII

United Arab Emirates

Lead scientist position in applied quantum algorithms

The theoretical division of Quantum Algorithms (https://quantum.tii.ae/quantum-algorithms),
directed by Prof. Leandro Aolita at the Quantum Research Centre (QRC) of the Technology
Innovation Institute (TII) in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, is seeking extremely talented
and motivated experienced researchers to fill a vacancy of lead scientist. This is an
intermediate position between senior researcher and director.

TII is a newly-established, top-funding state initiative that aims at becoming a major
international hub for Science & Technology (https://www.tii.ae/). The QRC has recently
launched world-class theoretical and experimental research groups on different quantum
technologies (https://quantum.tii.ae/about-us-quantum).

The Quantum Algorithms Group focusses on the study and development of quantum
algorithms, including optimisations, matrix-arithmetics-based problems, machine learning,
Monte-Carlo estimations, and complex quantum simulations, e.g. Our goals are two-fold:
practical primitives for near-term quantum hardware as well as advanced procedures for
future, fully-fledged universal quantum computers. Research activities include hybrid
classical-quantum approaches, neural- and tensor-network tools, quantum signal
processing, quantum error correction and mitigation, computational complexity, quantum
inspired and de-quantized algorithms, benchmarking/ characterization of quantum devices,
and quantum-circuit compiling, among others.

The candidate will supervise a team focussed on practical applications of quantum
algorithms with commercial potential. They should have a PhD in Quantum Information and
Computation, or related areas, and at least 4 years after their PhD of R&D experience in
classical and quantum algorithms, either in academia or within the private quantum software
sector.

Applications must be sent to leandro.aolita@tii.ae and should consist of a curriculum vitae,
a brief letter of motivation (max. 1 page), a short statement of research interests and
experience (max. 2 pages), and a list of publications or patents. At least two
recommendation letters should be arranged to be sent directly to the same E-mail.

The application deadline is March 14th, 2022. The starting date can be any time before
August 2022.
