Leading Research Center on Quantum Computing (agreement No. 014/20) Enacted

In the first quarter of 2020, our joint large-scale project was approved to form a National Center of Excellence for Quantum Computing as part of the nations Digital Economy Program. The Leading Research Center on Quantum Computing (agreement No. 014/20) was formed through a collaboration from Principle Investigator’s from the Russian Quantum Center (RQC), the Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Skoltech) and the Lebedev Physical Institute (FIAN). RQC is the primary project coordinator with Skoltech responsible for the theory, development and implementation of quantum enhanced algorithms. The project seeks to demonstrate quantum enhanced algorithms on experimental platforms inside the Russian Federation, with special emphasis placed on trapped ion implementations. RQC[…]

Postdoctoral research​ position in the theory of​ modern quantum algorithms

Applications are invited for ​a postdoctoral research​ position in the theory of​ modern quantum algorithms. The position will be held at ​Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (​Skoltech), Moscow, Russia. ​The start date is flexible but we would like to fill these position(s) as soon as possible. The successful applicant will work in the research laboratory structure led by Prof Jacob Biamonte in the general area of quantum computation, with a focus on quantum enhanced algorithms and error mitigation on experimental devices. The overarching project goals include: Develop, optimize, and benchmark variational quantum algorithms (e.g. QAOA and VQE) Implement quantum information processing tasks using trapped ions and optical networks available[…]

Innovation Workshop Quantum Project

Title of project “Quantum Computing Simulation in Mathematica” Overview Participants will build functions to simulate quantum processes, quantum circuits and quantum algorithms using Mathematica.  No experience in Mathematica is required; no experience in quantum computing is required either.  Emphasis will be placed on using the numerical functions built into Mathematica, but some symbolic functions can also be added, depending on the interest of those participating. Example of a completed project A core library of Mathematica functions that enables users to define a state space of qubits (or dits in general) apply unitary gates by indexing these dits apply functions such as the partial trace which takes indices to be traced[…]

Scientific Software Developer (HPC and parallel computing) – two positions 

Scientific Software Developer (HPC and parallel computing) – two positions  Skoltech’s Deep Quantum Labs is seeking two highly-talented and fast thinking developers (level depends on experience) to utilize our new supercomputing facility.  This facility is maintained and operated by CDISE (Skoltech) and opens the door to large-scale internationally competitive simulations of physical systems (500000+ NVidia – Volta – GPU cores and 2000 CPU cores). Ideal candidates should have some experience in scientific programming and some experience with high-performance parallel computing (for example OpenMP and MPI libraries – better Cuda, OpenCL and OpenACC); candidates would have mastered the Linux platform; they would be highly familiar with leading contemporary programming languages such as[…]
