Job Description

QuEra Computing is seeking talented, impact-motivated theoretical researchers with strong expertise in quantum error correction. You will be part of the team to develop and invent novel schemes for quantum error correction on our unique hardware. You will have the opportunity to work with a vibrant community of academic collaborators and to help our growing team of diverse experts to address fascinating challenges, from the development of hardware-efficient error correction schemes and decoding algorithms for our unique Rydberg atom quantum computer, to the design of protocols for executing fault-tolerant quantum logic, and finally to the implementation of fault-tolerant quantum algorithms with these methods.

Qualified applicants should have

  • A PhD in physics, computer science, or a related discipline, or equivalent practical experience
  • A background in quantum computing and quantum error correction
  • An exceptional publication record in relevant fields
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills

Preferred qualifications include

  • Deep knowledge of different quantum error correction schemes and trade-offs
  • Expertise with decoders, real-time operations, logical error simulations
  • Experience translating theoretical ideas and protocols to quantum computing hardware
  • Expertise in quantum characterization, verification, and validation
  • Experience estimating and optimizing resource costs for quantum computing, in either the NISQ or fault-tolerant regime
  • Experience with software development and parallel programming
