Description

Leader of the group Algorithms and Complexity: Harry Buhrman.

Our research group designs software for the computing technology of the future, especially quantum computing. Based on the laws of quantum mechanics, which tell us that systems and particles can be in multiple states at once, quantum computing is radically different from computing as we know it. Our quantum software requires fundamentally different techniques and approaches based on superposition, interference and entanglement. Ultimately, our research will result in better, faster and more reliable computer systems for society. Our research group is involved in QuSoft, the new Dutch research centre for quantum software.

Vacancies

Secretaresse Quantum (0,8 fte)

QuSoft (Research Center for Quantum Software) is het Amsterdamse samenwerkingsverband tussen Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica (CWI), UvA en VU. In het landelijke Quantum Software Consortium (QSC) werkt QuSoft samen met quantumgroepen in Amsterdam, Leiden en Delft. Voor deze groepen en de twee betrokken onderzoeksgroepen van het CWI (Algorithms & Complexity (A&C) en Cryptologie) is een vacature voor een professionele en flexibele secretaresse. De werkplek is bij het CWI op Amsterdam Science Park.

Postdoc / Postdoctoral Researcher on the subject of the computer-science aspects of quantum computing and quantum information theory

This position involves research into the computer-science aspects of quantum computing and quantum information theory, in close cooperation with Prof. Ronald de Wolf. Specifically, the project will focus on the development of new quantum algorithms and the analysis of their complexity, development of new quantum communication protocols and the role entanglement plays in such protocols, and applications of quantum techniques to problems in classical computer science and mathematics.
