Development of Quantum Computing Algorithms for studies of quantum mechanical many-body systems
The project deals with studies and development of advanced algorithms for interacting many-particle systems (either classical or quantum mechanical ones) in condensed matter physics and/or subatomic physics with an emphasis on methods and/or algorithms from Quantum Computing theories.
Ground state energy of the Hydrogen molecule for bond length between R = 0.3Å to R = 2.3Å, with the absolute error between the Variational Quantum Eigensolver with Unitary Coupled Cluster theory and Full Configuration Interaction (FCI) calculations. Hartree-Fock (HF).
There is also the possibility to combine quantum computing approaches with machine learning algorithms.
- The applicant is expected to hold a Master’s degree or equivalent in Computational or Theoretical Physics with specialization in quantum mechanical many-body problems with a strong background in Computational Physics/Science.
- Candidates with a background in Quantum Computing will be preferred.
