Postdoc positions in quantum computation and quantum simulation

Postdoc positions in quantum computation and quantum simulation

We are looking for highly motivated candidates with a strong research background and a PhD in quantum information or quantum physics/optics or quantum many-body physics.


Experience in quantum algorithm design, numerical simulation of quantum many-body systems, and/or quantum machine learning and optimization problems, especially with NISQ devices for real world applications (chemistry, logistics, finance etc) will be a strong plus.


The research will involve both analytical ‘pen and paper’ studies as well as numerical simulations; it is also expected that use of prototype quantum computers will be involved for testing of the algorithms (in direct collaboration with experimentalists, or remotely, through access to online quantum hardware).


A strong publication record in high impact research journals is essential, motivation for research excellence as well as ability to work in an interdisciplinary team is desired.


The group’s research interests range from quantum simulation and computation, to quantum many-body physics, topological photonics, quantum machine learning and optimization with NISQ processors (see group’s website). The group has active collaborations with world leading theory and experimental quantum groups in Singapore, Europe and US.


The positions are available as soon as possible and can be up to 3 years with possible extension. More senior research appointments can also be considered for experienced candidates. Salary is very competitive and depends on experience, with access to travel funds as well.


Informal inquiries should be first sent by email to Please include your consent by downloading and filling in the NUS Personal Data Consent for Job Applicants.


Applications can be submitted via the link below and they should contain: a CV, a summary of past research (2 pages), a motivation letter (1 page), 1 paper/draft you consider your best work, and the contact details (email) of three referees. We accept applications until a suitable candidate is found.
