Position: Research Associate in Mathematics
Institution: Imperial College London
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: The project will study quantum algorithms with applications to Finance. Two main directions are of interest: one involves quantum machine learning (i.e. quantum analogues of classical neural networks) and their properties (expressivity, universality) while the other focuses on quantum algorithms to solve high-dimensional (non-linear) PDEs. The candidate is expected to run alongside Dr Jacquier on these topics and help with some of the activities run within the Mathematical Finance group at Imperial College London. The candidate will also more broadly be involved in the activities of the Imperial Centre for Quantum Engineering, Science and Technology
Requirements: Hold a PhD in Mathematics (or equivalent) or a closely related discipline (e.g. Quantum Physics); A broad and strong background in numerical analysis, machine learning and/or Quantum Physics; Ability to carry out original research and to produce published research papers; Ability to identify, develop and apply new concepts, techniques and methods; Ability to keep accurate records of research results
