Job description:

The aim of the DLR Institute of Quantum Technologies in Ulm is to develop precision instruments for space applications based on quantum technologies and, in close cooperation with industry, mature them into prototypes. It thus provides a bridge between fundamental research and industry. Together with the DLR-Institute for Satellite Geodesy and Inertial Sensing in Hannover and the Galileo Competence Center in Oberpfaffenhofen, the institute in Ulm plays a pioneering role in these fields of research and application. The research of the four core departments Quantum Metrology, Quantum Information and Communication, Quantum Nanophysics, and Quantum Control of Charged Matter Waves is complemented by support from three cross-sectional departments of Quantum Engineering, Integration of Micro- and Nanosystems, and Theoretical Quantum Physics. The institute works in an interdisciplinary way, where fundamental theoretical research and experimental tests meets engineering.

We are looking for you to take on a position in the department of “Theoretical Quantum Physics”. As part of your scientific work, you will explore real quantum processors, develop and implement hardware-aware quantum algorithms and evaluate their performance together with our industrial partners. Realistic problems from DLR research should be solved. Be part of our team that provides important, interdisciplinary cross-sectional services for the supervision and preparation of  quantum experiments of the other departments of the institute. Profit from the professional training and networking possibilities offered by the quantum computing initiative of the DLR. Be part of our team and build with us the foundations of future quantum computers.

Your responsibilities:

  • perform scientific work in the area of quantum computation
  • test and benchmark real quantum hardware
  • develop, implement and test quantum algorithms on noisy intermediate scale quantum computers
  • transfer scientific results into industrial applications
  • present the obtained results in scientific journals as well as national and international conferences

This research center is part of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centers. With more than 42,000 employees and an annual budget of over € 5 billion, the Helmholtz Association is Germany’s largest scientific organisation.
