Position: Research Fellow/Senior Research Fellow: Quantum Networks for Distributed Quantum Computing
Institution: University College London
Department: Electronic & Electrical Engineering
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The postholder will simulate and model quantum computer networked systems to create distributed quantum computing. They will formalise and parameterise the requirements as well as explore the dependencies between technologies (quantum processors, interconnects), quantum information transfer methods (quantum teleportation via photon entanglement) and networking to identify performance (entanglement rate, fidelity, scalability) and operational limits. We will research the behaviour of multicast transmission of quantum information using multiple bipartite entanglement vs. multipartite entanglement to be able to send the same qubit to different quantum computers using opensource simulators (i.e. NetSquid) and incorporate our own data centre simulators
Requirements: Candidates should have a PhD in Electronic Engineering, Physics or related discipline (or about to submit a PhD thesis); alternatively extensive industrial and/or research experience in quantum networks or quantum computing. They should have knowledge of quantum computing and quantum optical network architectures and protocols, as well as event-driven quantum network simulation. Knowledge & experience of optical systems and including modelling and/or hands-on experimental research work is desirable

One post will be a Research Fellow and the other will be either a Research Fellow or Senior Research Fellow. The project is a £3m project funded by EPSRC and £11m InnovateUK projects and is in close collaboration with Imperial College London as well as a number of industrial partners including ORCA Computing, Cambridge Quantum Computing, BT, and Huber Suhner Polatis. This project seeks to look at classical technologies through the lens of the quantum computing and quantum networks to develop a blueprint for a quantum/classical hybrid data centre. The postholder will simulate and model quantum computer networked systems to create distributed quantum computing. They will formalise and parameterise the requirements as well as explore the dependencies between technologies (quantum processors, interconnects), quantum information transfer methods (quantum teleportation via photon entanglement) and networking to identify performance (entanglement rate, fidelity, scalability) and operational limits. We will research the behaviour of multicast transmission of quantum information using multiple bipartite entanglement vs. multipartite entanglement to be able to send the same qubit to different quantum computers using opensource simulators (i.e. NetSquid) and incorporate our own data centre simulators. The postholder will also explore heterogeneous data centre networked architectures to seamlessly support both quantum and classical computing. The postholder will be expected to take the lead on the on simulation and modelling of the distributed quantum computing system. The post is available immediately and funded for 2 years in the first instance. Further funding to support the post may be available. Key Requirements Candidates should have a PhD in Electronic Engineering, Physics or related discipline (or about to submit a PhD thesis); alternatively extensive industrial and/or research experience in quantum networks or quantum computing. They should have knowledge of quantum computing and quantum optical network architectures and protocols, as well as event-driven quantum network simulation. Knowledge & experience of optical systems and including modelling and/or hands-on experimental research work is desirable. For appointment of the Senior Research Fellow position, candidates must have significant post-doctoral experience on research (theoretical and experimental) associated with quantum computing and networking. If the successful candidate has not yet been awarded their PhD, appointment will be made as a Research Assistant (Grade 6B). Payment at Grade 7 will be backdated to the date of final submission of the PhD thesis including corrections, once the PhD has been awarded. The salary scale for Research Assistant (Grade 6B), point 24-26 is £32,217- £33,958 per annum. Further Details A copy of the job description can also be downloaded below.
