You will conduct research in the theory and design of quantum algorithms for optimization problems, both continuous and discrete, including NP optimization. This line of research includes both long-term and NISQ algorithmic theory and design, with a special focus on applications to use cases motivated by industry problems. The ideal candidate has a background in the theory of quantum computing, with a strong foundation in mathematics and/or theoretical computer science.

You will be jointly supervised by Stacey Jeffery (CWI) and Michael Walter (University of Amsterdam). You will be employed by the Korteweg-de Vries Institute for Mathematics at the University of Amsterdam, but will also be a member of QuSoft, a vibrant and interdisciplinary research institute hosted by CWI, and as such, will share an office with other QuSoft students at CWI.

What are you going to do?

You will:

  • perform research on Quantum Algorithms;
  • be part of the research center QuSoft and interact with its senior and junior members;
  • attend relevant international conferences and present your work to the wider quantum community;
  • contribute to educational programs at the University of Amsterdam and outreach efforts of QuSoft.

What do we require?

  • A Master’s degree in Mathematics and/or Computer Science (or equivalent);
  • an excellent academic track record;
  • excellent writing and communication skills in English;
  • a formal background in quantum computing research is not required (although it’s a plus), but your research statement should reflect a demonstrated interest in quantum algorithms.
