Senior Research Engineer, Quantum Algorithms and Applications

Company: Rigetti And Company Inc
Location: London
Posted on: February 26, 2021

Job Description:

Senior Research Engineer, Quantum Algorithms and Applications London, UK / Rigetti Computing is building the world's most powerful computers to solve humanity's most pressing problems. We believe this technology will fundamentally change the world for the better and will affect nearly every industry over the coming decades. We are expanding our Research Engineering capabilities in the UK to support a three year development program. Here at Rigetti, applied research in error detection, control, mitigation and suppression is key to extracting the maximum performance from our proprietary Quantum Processing Unit (QPU). For this role, you will shape and support successful research programs in quantum optimization, quantum machine learning and quantum chemistry by implementing techniques that reduce errors in the context of the target use case. Techniques range from those close to the QPU, including those that use our advanced pulse-level control language Quil-T, to those that integrate with quantum algorithms and end-user applications. This opportunity will see you collaborate with world-leading quantum information theorists in diverse customer programs, and work internally with our software and hardware teams to deliver solutions that are enduring and quantify the benefit of your contributions. Expertise in physics or quantum information science is required for this position. In addition, experience in the computational fields of optimization, machine learning and chemical simulation will be assessed favorably, as will evidence of strong modern software engineering practices. As scientific and engineering leaders, we value diversity and are committed to building a culture of inclusion to attract and engage innovative thinkers. Our technology, meant to serve all of humanity, cannot succeed if those who built it do not mirror the diversity of the communities we serve. Applications from women, minorities, and other under-represented groups are strongly encouraged. About You:

  • You enjoy working in a multi-disciplinary team and are eager to learn from experts outside of your field.
  • You are well versed in the theories of error detection, correction, mitigation and suppression, and are able to communicate these clearly with researchers in adjacent areas of inquiry, with our software engineers, and with our program managers.
  • You are outcome driven, and have a keen ability to assess the impact of your research on the performance of our full-stack quantum computing system, and on the benefits that quantum computing solutions can deliver to customers for specific use cases. Role and Responsibilities:
    • You will be a member of a small team responsible for the success of our UK programs, and will interact with and advocate for the needs of our collaborators in the fields of error detection, control, mitigation and suppression.
    • You will be a member of a small team of experts responsible for assessing the impact of emerging research on our full-stack quantum computing systems, with a focus on error reduction, and areas where you have expertise.
    • You will work with our software engineers to transfer successful research into production software, where it can be applied to a wide range of applications across our research and development programs. Key Qualifications:
      • Advanced degree in physics or quantum information science, or equivalent.
      • Experience in quantum error control, detection, mitigation and/or suppression.
      • Fluency in Python 3.6 and later, which is our common language across domains.
      • Experience writing and maintaining highly mathematical, performant software.
      • Proven ability to synthesize research findings into resilient, useful software. Preferred Qualifications:
        • Experience translating theoretical developments into business outcomes.
        • Experience in combinatorial optimization, machine learning or chemical simulation.
        • Experience in chemical, defence, energy, finance, or pharmaceutical domains.
        • Familiarity with Python numeric toolkits: numpy, scipy, pandas, scikit-learn. Why You Should Join:
          • Opportunity to think creatively, uncover, tailor and advance the state of the art in quantum computing research towards quantum advantage.
          • Connectivity to world-class researchers in adjacent and complementary areas of research, and participation in customer research programs.
          • Opportunity to come up with unique solutions for technical challenges that very few researchers have encountered before.
          • Ability to leverage cutting edge scientific research in your day to day work and build systems that enable and inspire further ground-breaking research. Further Reading
