Postdoc Natural Scientist, Computer Scientist, Mathematician or similar (f/m/x)
The Institute of Materials Physics in Space is one of the leading institutes worldwide in the exploration of fundamental physical properties and the solidification of metallic liquids, soft matter, and granular systems. In addition to experimental work in the laboratory and in microgravity, the institute works on computer simulations and theory to understand the physical phenomena that occur.
The Quantum Computer Initiative is a major project of the German Aerospace Center in the development and use of quantum computers. In the field of materials physics, the initiative aims to lay the foundations for the future effective use of quantum hardware and corresponding algorithms.
Quantum glass states should be useful for the development of novel materials (amorphous solids) as well as for the development of effective optimization methods (energy landscapes). For this purpose, established tools in the classical theory of condensed matter are to be extended to quantum phenomena, in particular for the calculation of glassy states and dynamics.
As part of the project you will be responsible for the following tasks:
- analytical and numerical calculations to extend the theory of condensed matter to the quantum domain
- development of quantum computing algorithms suitable for condensed matter problems
- publication of results in scientific journals and presentations at international scientific conferences
- degree in physics, chemistry, computer science, mathematics, or biology
- good analytical and programming skills
- good English language skills
- preferably research experience in the field of condensed matter theory
Look forward to a fulfilling job with an employer who appreciates your commitment and supports your personal and professional development. Our unique infrastructure offers you a working environment in which you have unparalleled scope to develop your creative ideas and accomplish your professional objectives. Our human resources policy places great value on a healthy family and work-life-balance as well as equal opportunities for persons of all genders (f/m/x).Individuals with disabilities will be given preferential consideration in the event their qualifications are equivalent to those of other candidates.
