Ph.D. and postdoc positions in quantum-inspired (tensor network) algorithms for differential equations
The quantum algorithms group at the IT University of Copenhagen is inviting applications for several PhD and postdoc positions to work on quantum-inspired tensor network algorithms for solving differential equations. The proposed starting date is July 1st 2023, or soon thereafter.
The IT University's vision is to create and share knowledge that is profound and leads to groundbreaking information technology and services for the benefit of humanity. The Computer Science Department seeks to conduct research and education that are both foundational and have impact on industry and society.The projects
Solving partial differential equations (PDE) to high precision is essential for many applications in science, engineering and finance, including: chip design, radar cross section, computational fluid dynamics, seismic imaging, quantum chemistry, derivatives pricing in finance, and many more. Globally, a large fraction of high-performance computing resources is allocated to solving PDEs. The aim of the project is to develop state-of-the-art tensor network algorithms for solving partial and stochastic differential equations. The project will involve both analytic and numerical components. Collaboration on projects on tensor network algorithms for quantum computing research might also be a part of the PhD and postdoc projects.Job description
The IT University of Copenhagen (ITU) is a teaching and research-based tertiary institution concerned with information technology (IT) and the opportunities it offers. The IT University has more than 160 full-time Faculty members. Research and teaching in information technology span all academic activities which involve computers including computer science, information and media sciences, humanities and social sciences, business impact and the commercialization of IT.
Questions about the positions can be directed to associate professor Michael Kastoryano, IT University of Copenhagen, [email protected]The team
The main supervisor for the project will be Michael Kastoryano, Associate Professor in Computer Science at ITU (mkastoryano.com). The quantum algorithms group at ITU is a rapidly growing subgroup of the Algorithms division. We aim at building a diverse team. All applications are welcome; those from members of underrepresented groups are especially encouraged.Research environment
The candidate will be working very closely with our local and international collaborators. In particular, the group has regular meetings and shared office opportunities with the Center for Quantum Mathematics at the University of Copenhagen (qmath.ku.dk), the Pioneer center for AI (aicentre.dk/), the Niels Bohr Institute (nbi.ku.dk), and the Novo Nordisk quantum computing center as well as our quantum start-up partners (https: // www. kvantify.dk/).
Copenhagen is becoming one of the epicentres for quantum technologies research and development, with a myriad of activity both in the academic and in the industrial space. The candidates are expected to engage with the various partners in this space.PhD student qualifications (36 months positions)
