IonQ is looking for a theoretical AMO physicist to help further advance our state-of-the-art trapped ion quantum computer. You’ll work closely with experimental physicists and device engineers to work on various theoretical aspects of constructing and operating scalable trapped ion quantum computers. . We’re looking for people who are self-motivated, self-directed, and innovative, with a great attitude and work ethic.
Developing scientific computational tools to help develop trapped ion quantum computers
Analytical and numerical investigation of the quantum dynamics of trapped ion qubit system
Design of hardware-specific quantum control procedures for trapped ion qubits
Closely collaborating with experimental physicists and quantum engineers to understand the device-level details of the IonQ system
Doctorate degree in (AMO) Physics or relevant field
Demonstrated experience in both analytics and numerics
Proven device-level understanding of experimental equipment
Success working collaboratively in a team environment
Working knowledge of Fortran (especially F77!) and/or C
Working knowledge of Linux
Please include a CV and a cover letter containing a research statement (max. 13 pages). The research statement should include your scientific achievement in the relevant field, well formulated, realistic proposals for short- and medium- term research projects targeted specifically for IonQ’s systems, and your long-term goals and visions for this position.
