Aboout the position
Your work will span and contribute to the Wallenberg Centre for Quantum
Technology (WACQT) at Chalmers, the European OpenSuperQPlus collaboration
and the NordIQuEst project. The mission is to build a web interface which
helps to explore, analyse, and present internal data of a quantum computing
system as well as to help integrate the quantum computing system into a
classical high-performance computer (HPC) infrastructure for a unified web-
based access. You will get help and supervision with user requirements and
high-level system design, but we will trust you to make the call with tools,
technologies, and implementation. We encourage both junior and senior
engineers to apply.
- Frontend web design and implementation
- Work on Python-based backend with REST API and MongoDB
- Interfacing with multiple projects
- Co-designing an HPC+QC ecosystem
About the research group
Activities within the hosting research group involve a broad range of
quantum engineering methodologies supporting the mission to build a fully
functional 100-qubit quantum computer. A 20-qubit QPU has been already built
and the goal is to test use-cases by the end of 2023. Work involves all parts
of a full stack, from designing and fabricating the QPU to creating an API for
remote access, including work toward integration of HPC and QPU for quantum
acceleration. During 2022 we had a successful proof-of-concept connection
between Chalmers quantum computer and the LUMI supercomputer in Finland. Other
activities also involve designing and implementing algorithms and use cases
for optimization and quantum chemistry problems.
About the Wallenberg Centre for Quantum Technology - WACQT
WACQT is a 12-year initiative (2018-2029) aimed to bring Swedish academia
and industry to the forefront of Quantum Technology (QT). The four pillars
of QT comprise quantum computing, quantum simulation, quantum communication
and quantum sensing. The Centre is funded mainly by the Knut and Alice
Wallenberg Foundation with additional contributions from the participating
universities and industry. At Chalmers, the focus is on building a
superconducting quantum computer and to explore useful applications of quantum
OpenSuperQPlus (2023-2029) is a Framework Partnership Agreement with the
aim to create a competitive full-stack superconducting quantum computing
system on the European level. OpenSuperQPlus combines the quantum engineering
and technology expertise of multiple universities, RTOs, and SMEs with the
highest expertise and strongest track-record to this end in Europe and
Associated Countries. The mission is to scale superconducting quantum chip
technology to 1000 qubits by 2029. Further focus is building the European
community toward developing and deploying scalable, high-performance European
quantum computing platforms and capabilities.
NordIQuEst (2022-2024) builds a quantum computing platform and
infrastructure customized to the needs of the Nordic region. The project
gathers complementary expertise and resources required for establishing this
new infrastructure, comprising some of the best quantum expertise globally.
The infrastructure will connect two superconducting QPUs and a state-of-the-
art dedicated quantum computer simulator to the LUMI leadership-class, pre-
exascale supercomputer. NordIQuEst will develop user and computer interfaces,
quantum program libraries, training and education events and material, and
deliver user support.
Full-time temporary employment. The position is for one to two years.
Opportunities for permanent employment as Research Engineer can be possible at
the end of the position. There are also possibilities to arrange for doctoral
or postdoctoral studies.
- Demonstrated ability to design and develop rich web frontends
- Typescript, React, REST API
- Designing in Figma with components in Storybook
- Demonstrated ability to design and develop REST API
- Solid proficiency in Python and MongoDB
