Subject: 19.12.11 Postdoctoral Quantum Scientist
Post-doctoral Quantum Scientist General Atomics (GA) and Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) are looking for a highly motivated post-doctoral quantum scientist to assist with quantum computing (QC) calculations and algorithm development for applications in support of energy sciences. The target problem areas span aspects of quantum chemistry and materials science. Tasks will be related to the formulation of theory and coding implementations to model static and dynamical system properties suitable for execution using QC simulators and hardware. To be successful in this role, the post-doctoral quantum scientist will need to be highly motivated, a good communicator, capable of independently formulating representations of quantum problems, and comfortable working with a team of interdisciplinary scientists. They are expected to work closely with researchers at GA and ANL to make use of High Performance Computing (HPC) resources at the Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) and IBM quantum computers. The post-doc will be physically located at Argonne National Laboratory in Lemont, IL. Regular short-term visits to GA in San Diego, CA are anticipated. The position is funded under a 3 year grant through the U.S. department of energy and offers a competitive stipend. Required Qualifications: Ph.D. in Quantum Chemistry/Physics, or a related discipline such as Theoretical Chemistry, Theoretical Physics, Mathematical Physics, Condensed Matter Physics, Quantum Information Sciences (QIS). Must be able to formulate problem Hamiltonian(s) for quantum chemistry systems of interest, including first and second quantization representations, and map formulation to quantum gate operations. Substantial background in theory and simulations of fermionic physics as it relates to electronic structure theory & calculations; e.g, Hartree-Fock, coupled cluster theory, configuration interaction, DFT, etc. Strong code development/programming skills (preferably Python). Desired Additional Qualifications: Direct experience with implementation and modification of hybrid quantum-classical algorithms such as the variational quantum eigensolver (VQE). Experience using QC hardware, and with quantum algorithm and gate programming using open libraries such as OpenFermion/Cirq, Forest, and Qiskit. Familiar with quantum error correction and fault-tolerant QC, matrix product states and tensor networks, annealing and adiabatic QC approaches (e.g. QUBO). Working knowledge of QC hardware, quantum gate modeling, and quantum algorithm design. Experience using quantum chemistry codes such as GAMESS, NWChem, PySCF, CP2K, and PSI4. Programming skills in C/C++, FORTRAN, Julia, or MATLAB.
