ICFO is offering a postdoctoral position to a well-qualified, highly motivated and dynamic young scientist who wishes to enhance his / her scientific career in a friendly and stimulating environment.
The successful candidate will be joining the Quantum Optics Theory group led by Prof. Dr. Maciej Lewenstein . The group has experience in quantum many body physics, quantum optics, classical and quantum machine learning.
The candidate will be working on the project Exploring quantum phases of matter with quantum simulators and machine learning , which is led by Dr.
Alexandre Dauphin and funded by the La Caixa foundation. The project will focus on (i) studying phases of matter with quantum simulators and machine learning, (ii) quantum machine learning on Noisy Intermediate-Scale Quantum devices and quantum simulators.
Skills / Qualifications
Candidates must hold an internationally-recognized degree (or evidence of its completion in the nearest future) preferably in quantum physics.
The candidate should have a proven track record of top level research during the PhD studies. Positively valued will be the experience in the points (i) and (ii) mentioned above.
Particularly desired is an experience in numerical methods and (quantum) machine learning.
